  • 'Paul Whitehead has been giving my son guitar lessons for about 2 years. My son has progressed in leaps and bounds since Paul started teaching him. Paul is patience, knowledgeable with enough authority to get the maximum participation out of my son. My son has completed his Grade 6 Trinity Guildhall examination with Paul's assistance and will now be working towards his Grade 8 qualification with Paul. Paul's music knowledge & qualifications are very impressive.

    I would recommend Paul without hesitation.' - Sam van der Walt

  • 'Paul is both a fantastic guitarist and an amicable guy who has extensive knowledge of a variety of genres. I have been Paul's student for a couple of years now and the lessons have never stopped being interesting and there has always been a good balance between music theory and simply learning pieces of music. Overall, I have no complaints and I would suggest Paul to any aspiring guitarists, regardless of their level.' - Chris Tindle

  • 'I have been taking lessons with Paul for a while now and would recommend Paul in a heart beat. His knowledge across all genres of music is phenomenal. He has assisted me with both the theory and practical aspects of guitar playing. My guitar playing has come along in leaps and bounds with Paul's help and guidance since we started together - to the point where I now play both rhythm and lead guitar in a band regularly which has always been a dream of mine. Without Paul I'm not sure I would have had the courage and or condfidence to play in front of a live audience.' - Sean Olivier

  • 'Paul teaches you 4 children, aged 14 to 9 to play the guitar. At first I'd drop them off at his school but that became tough and he kindly agreed to have the lessons at our home. The kids love Paul. He has helped them build confidence and teaches them the songs that they want to learn. He has even offered to help them to prep for school music exams. Our schedules are a bit crazy but Paul is always accommodating so that music lessons is one less thing for me to think about. Thanks Paul' - Rukshana Fakier
