John Duarte was born on 2 October 1919 in Sheffield, England and died in London on 23 December 2004. He was 100% British despite his name having Portuguese overtones. His father was Scottish and his mother, who was born in Philadelphia, USA, was English! 

He was educated at Manchester Central High School (1931-35) and Manchester University Faculty of Technology (1936-40). He worked as a professional chemist until 1969, then abandoned chemistry in favour of full-time music. His only formal musical education was lessons with Terence Usher (1934-36) in jazz-guitar playing; the rest was by self-instruction. His many friendships with great artists included one of 39 years with Andrés Segovia and an enforcedly shorter one with Ida Presti, who died at the age of 42. 

He was the composer of nearly 150 works for the guitar and lute (many commissioned with funds provided by the Arts Council of Great Britain and other sources, official and private, both domestic and overseas). Many have been published and nearly half have been commercially recorded. He was also the author of very many arrangements (several also recorded) and didactic works. 

As the writer of countless articles he was a regular contributor to Soundboard, interviewer and reviewer of books, music, concerts and recordings of many kinds in Gramophone, Music Teacher and Classical Guitar, and author of numerous concert-programme notes and about 250 liner notes for records and CDs of various kinds, including those for the complete reissue of Julian Bream's recordings for RCA (28 compact discs). He received a GRAMMY Award for his annotation to the reissue of Segovia's recordings of 1927-39. His Appalachian Dreams op.121 formed the centrepiece of the 2001 GRAMMY Award-winning album Dreams of a World by Sharon Isbin and the Joan Baez Suite op.144 was also the centrepiece of her 2010 GRAMMY Award-winning album, Journey to the New World. In 2022, Idylle pour Ida op.93 featured on Berta Rojas' Latin GRAMMY Award-winning album, Legado. He contributed regularly to Music in Education, Guitar Review, Guitar International, Music & Musicians, Records and Recording, and Performance and was a contributor to the revised edition of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. 

As a teacher he prepared many students for successful careers, and he was Director of the Cannington International Guitar Summer School and Festival (1974-93), Course Director of the Bath International Guitar Festival (1994-95) and the Oatridge International Guitar Summer School and Festival (near Edinburgh, Scotland). He worked as a teacher, lecturer and adjudicator in 29 countries outside the United Kingdom. 

At the Convention of the Guitar Foundation of America in October 1999 he received an Award for Lifetime Achievement.
