Daniel Bovey is a guitarist with a real passion for chamber music. Currently studying a masters of arts degree at the Royal Academy of music and performing as the Vickers-Bovey guitar duo, Daniel is also a member of the Mela Guitar Quartet.
Before studying at the Academy, Daniel received his Bachelors of music degree at Birmingham Conservatoire, under the tuition of Mark Ashford. The Vickers-Bovey guitar duo formed whilst Daniel was studying in Birmingham and went on to win the Conservatoire's highest chamber music accolades and jointly received the award for the highest degree result. Daniel studied the Kodaly method for three years during his undergraduate studies and this is where his interest in Colourstrings teaching began.
Daniel has an avid interest in contemporary music; in 2014 the Vickers-Bovey duo premiered a new work by Joe Cutler and the Mela guitar Quartet have recently recorded chamber works by Stephen Dodgson, due to be published on the composer's website archive in 2016. Daniel has performed in many large ensembles and also plays professionally as an electric guitarist and bassist.
