Sam Rodwell completed his undergraduate at The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester with a first class honours degree under the tutelage of Craig Ogden. Sam went on to complete his Masters in performance also at the RNCM with a distinction. The college subsequently appointed him as an ‘Associate Guitar Teacher’ after excelling over a six year period .  In his very first term as an undergraduate he won the String Department ‘Salon Prize’ making him the first guitarist to win this competition for nearly 30 years. In his fourth year he went on to attain a place as a finalist in the highly prestigious ‘Gold Medal’ competition. He has similarly appeared as a finalist in the New Elizabethan Award 2022, Ivor Mairants Guitar Competition and The Royal Overseas League strings sectional.
Sam has given many recitals in some of the most recognised concert halls in the U.K. including a solo performance for 1500 people at the De Montfort Hall (Leicester), St Martins-in-the-Fields, The David Josefowitz Recital Hall, Bridgewater Hall, RNCM Concert Hall, Buxton Pavilion and many more.
