  • I highly recommend Chris Weeks for tutoring . He has been teaching my 13 year old son to gain his electric guitar grades and is doing a great job. Chris is patient, enthusiastic, encouraging, inspiring and an extremely talented musician in his own right. My son thoroughly enjoys his lessons and is making great progress. He is very lucky to have Chris as his tutor.
