John has been composing music since the 1970s, and was awarded a Master of Music (M.Mus) degree from the University of Sheffield in 2003. His music is published under the name John W. Powell.
He writes in a lyrical style with an emphasis on melody and has had several chamber works performed at venues across the UK. As a classical guitarist, he is most at home writing for guitar and his Seven Nocturnes for Classical Guitar were published in 2013.
John's suite in E minor (for beginners) will be available soon.
You can watch John playing Nocturnes No. 1 and No. 7 by visiting the video pages of this website. You can also buy the sheet music (and c.d.) from the shop.
