Farrell brings with him a lifetime of achievements as a concert guitarist, recording artist and guitar teacher. He has performed around the world and has taught the guitar on three continents. It is this wealth of experience playing (in every venue imaginable) and teaching (private, public and master classes) that he brings to students of all ages whether they're as young as 6 or as young at heart as 76.

Terrence is great at tailoring guitar lessons to each student's needs, desires and technical abilities, keeping a mind's eye to creating sound musical knowledge for a lifetime, all the while learning the guitar is a joy!

"Thank you so much for visiting our school on Monday. Once again you entertained and educated masterfully. The students really enjoyed the assembly and several of them have asked me about you: I think you piqued their interest in guitar."
-Chartwell School
