My Testimonials
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Simon
John is a first class guitar and piano teacher with many great references to back up his achievements. My Guitar Lessons and My Keyboard Lessons would certainly advise anyone looking for lessons should pay John a visit. Simon
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Cheryl
John has tutored my 12 year old daughter in Guitar for the last 3 years. I would not have anybody else. He puts a lot of enthusiasm and knowledge into his teaching and often gets carried away so is never clock watching which I have experienced with other teachers. Emily is a particularly difficult student who can get bored easily especially if what she is doing is repetitive and she feels she has already learnt it or is not learning from the session. John is excellent at moving her on and teaching her the same thing in a different way so that she doesn’t get bored with it. She usually can’t wait for her lessons and does practice, however John is not a hard task master and does not expect heavy amounts of homework done on top of other commitments. He does encourage her to play all the time and as my daughter is quite creative she has been inspired by John to make up some songs and try other instruments which she is doing through school. John always comes prepared to the lesson and my daughter has been able to play different guitars and understand the difference between them, playing many different styles of music with in their lessons. Also on a more practical note I get all of this and a happy daughter for a very reasonable price and think it is well worth what I pay.
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Louise
We are very pleased with the guitar lessons John is providing our 11 year old daughter with. Not only is he knowledgeable and passionate about his music, he also shows great versatility when encouraging my daughter to learn songs of her own choice. He is very accommodating of our queries and thoughts as parents, and will always take time to answer our questions. John has the patience required to teach all levels and has been tremendous support in keeping my daughter motivated. He is extremely reliable, which I feel is key to maintaining progression.”
