Guitarist composer and arranger Theron Terry Shaw consistently creates his music through persistent hard work and dedication. He has tapped into his own unique method of mastery, and through his stylistic adaptability, can play several genres of music.
Shaw’s career as a guitarist began at an early age. At eleven years old, he began the study of the instrument that has become his lifelong dedication, only to be rivaled by his passion for the fine art’s, of which acrylic, watercolour and pastels are his favourites.
Upon completion of his early studies, he went on to attend Howard University, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Therapy Cum Laude in 1994. Additionally, he also completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Education from The University of The West Indies, St Augustine.
