Testimonials

  • Jackie-40-Even though I'd always wanted to learn to play the guitar, I didn't do anything about it until I was 40.
    I decided somewhat nervously to book a first lesson with Simon. I needn't have worried. I was immediately put at ease with his easygoing personality. He took time to find out what i wanted to achieve, Im learning to play all my favourite styles of music. He's really encouraging and keeps me going even through the difficult stuff. Its so rewarding I never thought i could do it.

  • Tom 17- I have been taught by Simon for 4 years, in which time i have found the musical education to be invaluable, his lessons are based on my interests and cover the practical as well as theory. the help i had from him helped me to gain an A grade in Music GCSE and music A level simon is more than just a teacher he is a mentor for any progressing student as his motivation and inspiration means id happily recommend him as a teacher

  • My 14 daughter has been having lessons with Simon for 18 months. he has an approachable teaching style which makes lessons fun and enjoyable. he encourages development at the students pace. and ensures that theory and techniques are fully explained.I am very happy to recommend Simon as an excellent teacher.

  • Simon has been teaching my son for about a year now and its incredible to see the difference and the level of progress he's made even though he's only 8, as a parent its great to see Ethan having fun as well as learning to play his favourite songs and knowing he's learning a skill for life.
