Gethin Griffiths

Piano

Gethin is a post-graduate student at Bangor University. He worked for the Centre as a receptionist between 2012 and 2015, but now he is a piano tutor. After completing his Grade 8 with Sioned Webb in 2012 he has accompanied and performed on the piano and keyboards in concerts and events across Wales.

He has a keen interest in composing. He is a part of the 'Clwb Cariadon' club which is a project that started as a one off session for BBC Radio Wales, and he continues to compose with a number of other musicians. As the conductor for the JMJ Choir, he lead them in the semi-final round of Côr Cymru - Wales' Choir in 2015 in Aberystwyth. 

Gethin believes that using music in the community is all important, and therefore, he has worked with a number of local ventures to promote this. He worked with Pontio as part of the 'Corneli Cudd 2' project in the summer of 2013, then as a part of the preperations for the show 'Tocyn i Ble?' by the company Cofis Bach in 2015. He has also jointly run some 'Caru Cerdd' sessions in partnership with the Centre. 

In his spare time Gethin enjoys attending and running events with Bangor's Welsh Student Union as well as performing with a number of popular music groups from the area. He intends to continue with his studies in Bangor University over the coming years and also continue to take part in a variety of musical projects.
