He founded Graham Fraser's Guitar School in 2005 in which he taught over 50 students per week in England, at his studio and at two middle schools and a local college. So far in his teaching career, he has taught all ages between 8 - 75 from about every possible walk of life. In this time, he also created his own online guitar school 'the Rockabillyguitarschool.com'. Here he teaches the highly challenging style of Rockabilly Guitar to people all over the globe; It is the first webschool of it's kind in the world! Graham moved back to Victoria B.C. with his wife and daughter after many years living abroad and decided to start Rock and Go. The aim was to compensate for the lack of high quality in-home music lessons offered in the Greater Victoria region. Graham still actively teaches many of his students from the UK Via Skype and also around the world! And if this wasn't enough, he is active playing shows around the region and in the USA with his all instrumental Surf/Rockabilly band The Cavaleros. He also plays local shows in one of Victoria's best 'Classic Rock' bands covering everything from Van Halen to The Rolling Stones and is the lead guitarist in North America's premier The Cars Tribute Band 'Moving in Stereo'
