A former army musician has set up his own music studio.
Jon Sharman, who retired from the Grenadier Guards last year, will be teaching in the Greenfields Studio in Gamlingay as well as hiring out the recording space.
Budding musicians will be able to take clarinet, saxophone and drum lessons in the log cabin at competitive rates.
Jon, 43, said: “I’ve been a musician for 25 years professionally.
“I retired from the army last June.
“Recording and music lessons can be very helpful and I thought I could provide that service for local people, mainly beginners.
“It would put playing an instrument within everybody’s reach and give young people the experience of doing it.”
Jon – who has performed at events like the Trooping the Colour, Changing the Guard, the Edinburgh Tattoo and the Royal Tournament – is keen to pass his experience on to others.
He added: “I can impart the knowledge I’ve learnt to younger people.
“It seems there aren’t as many people learning to play instruments as when I was a kid.
“I think it’s a shame.Hopefully I will get others to play.”
Competitive prices will be on offer for lessons, and Jon believes the studio is very suitable for tuition.
He said: ““I will charge competitive rates. I will be teaching for as many hours as I can. I’ve taught the drums before.
“The studio is completely geared up for this. I’m also CRB checked.”
