Michael Casswell

Michael Casswell’s finesse, musicality and style on the instruments remains the talk of guitar players worldwide. His Pro Concepts lesson series is an invaluable collection of Mike’s years of guitar wisdom gained as a professional guitarist; sharing the stage with rock royalty such as Brian May and Cozy Powell.

His passing in 2016 saw the loss of a true musical talent, well respected teacher and much loved friend to many.
