Most guitar teachers don’t set out to exclusively be teachers. Yes we love teaching guitar and helping others to play guitar but all too often we can find ourselves struggling to get the right balance. Eliot Boyd Reynolds has been a successful guitar teacher and music producer all of his adult life. Eliot produces music for TV and film such as shows like Home and Away and Tropfest. He is one of the best examples I know of someone who has found a near perfect balance. Eliot owns and operates his own recording studio in the idilic Blue Mountains west of Sydney Australia. He combines his love of music production with his passion for teaching guitar all from his studio. In the video interview my aim was to discover how he found the balance and what advice he could offer other aspiring guitarists looking to do the same.
