I am fortunate enough to currently be take lessons with Chris which I enjoy greatly. Before I started, I couldn't even read music, now I can read and play to a reasonable standard with confidence.This is entirely down to Chris's patient and methodical approach to teaching and his understanding of peoples different learning styles. Keep up the good work Chris. Thanks for everything.
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Gary
I was fortunate to spend 2 years at music college with Chris and was always in awe of his ability. As much as I practiced I could never get close to his technique. I am so happy Chris has achieved so much in music. He has a true gift. Well done Chris.
