In the past seven years Guitar Tuition East London has grown from operating out of Darryl Powis’s home in 2012 as a one man band to smart premises in East Village, where it has a thriving customer base. The pandemic of 2020 presented new challenges: it immediately moved its lessons online and had to adapt how it taught.

 

Runners up were James Jaconelli of Urgent Services in Stratford and Ahmed Meza of Race Sim in Forest Gate. Well done to all concerned!
