Spanish Guitar

A photo of the guitar I first learnt to play on.  My grandmother gave it to me when I was about ten. Its not really a family heirloom, she never played it and doesn’t know where its from. We just found it in the attic and my mum thought i should give lessons a go.

Looking For Writers!

Aesthetic Empire is looking for writers! Preferably students with interests in the arts who would like to share their artwork, literature or would like to review or discuss topics. Pretty much as long as it comes under the arts,media or even music. I would greatly appreciate it so that this blog uploads content more regularly.

If anyone is interested email me at aestheticempire@hotmail.com or message me on social media. Your work would get credited (obviously) and after a while you’d probably get admin privileges as well (if you want).

Many then turn to
