Pablo Tato was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1982 in a family that devoured art and music. He spent half of his life playing classical guitar, eventually achieving a Degree by the Real Conservatorio Superior de Madrid in 2006. In his teenage years he fell in love with progressive and classic rock and started playing electric guitar, and soon he was touring extensively in festivals around the world with his band Psicotropia, with whom he would release three albums. During these years, Pablo gained teaching experience working both as a private tutor and in many music schools in Madrid.
In 2009 Pablo moved to London. After studying a Degree in Popular Music Performance at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, he soon began working for West London Music Tutors, building an extensive roster of private students of all ages and levels. As a session musician in the London pop music scene, Pablo has recorded and toured with artists such as Adele, Lana del Rey, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and many others, and worked with producers such as Paul Epworth (Adele, Paul McCartney, U2), Jim Lowe (Stereophonics) and Martin Terefe (James Blunt, Jason Mraz).
Pablo’s approach to teaching is based on the student’s favorite styles and music, always keeping a relaxed and fun approach to learning, but covering as well the technical and music theory needs to keep progressing as a guitarist and musician. Pablo has been teaching all styles of playing on classical, acoustic and electric guitar to students of all ages and levels for more than fifteen years, including preparing students to classical ABRSM Grades and electric guitar Rock School exams.
