Jon Pickard classical guitarist for funerals

Why Guitar for Funeral Music?


The classical or Spanish guitar is loved and recognised throughout the world for its elegance, versatility and emotional beauty.  Most people could name one or two famous guitar tunes that they love and that people would recognise. 

Almost any song can be arranged for Classical guitar, though this does take a little time to do well.  The mood can switch between sombre, elegant, romantic and upbeat and happy depending on your wishes.

You may wish for a certain piece to be played at a key moment during the ceremony, before or after the ceremony, or even during the reception afterwards.

The guitar is portable and can play anywhere for small and intimate gatherings, or amplify with PA to fill a marquee.  If your loved one had a liking for Spanish guitar, or you think guitar music would suit your occasion well please get in touch to discuss.


I have been a professional musician for over 25 years and have played for countless ceremonies of all kinds.  I always conduct myself with professionalism and fully respect every occasion.

I live in Somerset but am happy to travel if costs are covered.  I hope you will like this idea and look forward to playing for you.

"Your music was perfect, my husband would have loved it.  Thank you so much"     Josephine (2019)
