Daniel Clark has been playing classical guitar since he was 10 years old. At his school in North Yorkshire he was taught by Matthew Wheeler. When he moved to Edinburgh in 1997 he studied with Gordon Ferries, with whom he studied Barrios, Ponce, Bach, and Lauro.
In 2001, Daniel was awarded the Certificate in Performance from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and he performed a concert at Clare Hall college at the University of Cambridge.
He first learned flamenco at Carmen de las Cuevas in 1999, returning several times to study to advanced level with Jorge ‘el pisao’. He accompanied flamenco dance classes at Alba Flamenco dance school in Edinburgh and performed in a concert at the Church Hill Theatre.
In 2021 he arranged Bach’s violin partitas in E major and d minor, as well as a new arrangement of Isaac Albeniz’s Asturias from the piano version, influenced by the original version for guitar by Severino Garcia Fortea. These are available on sheetmusicplus. Click on the sheetmusicplus logo to go his page on the site.
In August 2022 he took the Licentiate Diploma in Performance at Trinity College, London, where he performed his arrangements of Bach’s violin partita in E major and Asturias, as well as Leo Brouwer’s El Decameron Negro and Francisco Tarrega’s Recuerdos de la Alhambra. He is currently working towards a Fellowship Diploma with his own arrangement of Bach’s Chaconne for solo violin.
