John Mills

Regarded as one of Britain's finest concert guitarists and a performer of international repute, John Mills began learning the instrument at the age of nine. He studied with John Williams, Julian Bream and Andrès Segovia. Segovia later commented that Mr Mills' playing "had purity of technique and musical sensitivity". In 1970, he was a prize-winner in the Greater London Arts Association search for talented young performers and he then made his official London debut at the Wigmore Hall the following year. His international debut came in 1972 with a tour of Eastern Canada. John Mills has since given hundreds of performances in North America, Europe, Scandinavia, S. E. Asia, Australia and New Zealand, as well as a vast number of recitals on the British circuit. Since the early 1970s, John Mills has often performed on BBC radio broadcasts. Also in demand around the world for master-classes and seminars, his books "Music from the Student Repertoire" and "The John Mills Guitar Tutor" are best-sellers.
