Darryl Rule earned his music diplomas by studying classical guitar performance under the guidance of Rafaelle Agostino. He also has a master’s degree in journalism, in which he specialised in arts and music reporting. His earlier studies with eminent South African classical guitarists David Hewitt and Fritz Buss were completed when he received his Bachelor of Music from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, specialising in both classical guitar performance and musicology.
Mr Rule was a founding member of the Johannesburg Guitar Quartet. He taught at primary and high schools in South Africa before moving to Australia. After settling in Sydney, he became a member of the mandolin and guitar ensemble, Plektra. As well as running a busy private guitar teaching studio, Mr Rule teaches classical guitar at Monte Sant’Angelo in North Sydney and is the conductor of the Sydney Mandolin Orchestra. He regularly attends the Classical Guitar Society of Sydney annual summer school events and plays in ensemble and orchestra performances held by the Society.
Besides his teaching and conducting duties, Mr Rule takes an active interest in the music community. He is a broadcaster at Fine Music and he is also a member of the group frEternity, an ensemble comprising some of Sydney’s leading classical guitarists.
