Throughout the year we host events that cater to all musicians no matter what instrument you might play.
Most commonly we host masterclass or clinic-style events with famous musicians from all over the world including some big names like Eric Johnson, Larry Carlton and Guthrie Govan.
We have some great artists coming to Guildford to host events where you can see some of their amazing skills up close and have the chance to ask some questions about their approach to music and their gear! Get your tickets below and join us with these legends.

He'll be coming to teach us all of his secrets ahead of his UK tour where he'll be playing shows all over England and Scotland.
Joey is an inspiring guitar player both with and without his trusty slide and you'll be captivated by his phrasing, musicality, sense of melody and overall charm.

Tom Quayle and Martin Miller are two of the finest guitarists to come out of Europe and we're excited to announce that they'll be coming to Guildford to host a Masterclass in association with Andertons Music Co. and Ibanez Guitars.
They'll be jamming together throughout the evening as well as answering questions from the audience and teaching us about their unique approach to the guitar. Both of these players have a unique and interesting approach to the electric guitar and their phrasing and melodic approach is unrivalled.

Andertons presents 'Drum Addicts Live' in association with Pearl Drums. We're bringing our popular YouTube channel to a Guildford stage for a whole day of everything drums! We'll have 4 world-class drummers on stage playing their hearts out and showing off their incredible chops and musicality.
Drum Addicts Live will also see the first public unveiling of the Pearl e/MERGE in the UK, which has been eagerly anticipated since its launch in early 2018. Pearl ambassador Sascha Waack will be showing it off, and we'll have one set up for you to try out yourselves!
More on our Events
Who We’ve Had At Andertons Music Co.
Alongside those brand events we’ve had some amazing musicians in the store to host clinics and masterclasses. These artists come down and play a few of their famous songs and then teach some of their tricks of the trade.
We’ve had some of the best guitarists, bassists and drummers in the world teach us about their approach to music.
Often, they’ll go through their history of being a musician and how they’ve come to learn what they know as well as sharing that knowledge with you. At the end of the show a microphone is passed around the room and you can ask the artists any burning questions you might have.

Past In-Store Events
We've hosted events with representatives from some of the biggest brands in the industry such as Gibson, Orange and Native Instruments. These events are free and give you the opportunity to come down and ask questions about your next purchase or to just learn about your favourite brands.
Our in-store events are generally held during the day so that you’re not pressed for time when trying the gear out, but we do occasionally host evening brand events.
Some of the bigger brand events we’ve hosted include:
- The Taylor Roadshow – Taylor Guitars come down to the store annually to run through all of their models and break down each guitar, series by series. After the show, you have the opportunity to ask questions and try the newest guitars out for yourself.
- Craig Blundell Demonstrates Roland TD-50K – Craig Blundell is a phenomenal drummer and came down to the store to show us how to get the most out of a TD-50K drum kit. We weren’t only treated some amazing drumming but we all got a chance to try out the Roland Kit before it was even released!
