What Some of My Clients Say


Chris is personable, professional and easy going. I have been learning from scratch for a year now and have improved hugely both with technique and reading music.  He manages to fit alot into a lesson, I've been really impressed from the start.  It's great to learn with a tutor like Chris who is encouraging, sets attainable goals and makes sessions fun!
I have been attending weekly guitar lessons with Chris for over 2 years now and I have enjoyed and learnt a great deal from him. Chris's enthusiasm for music and teaching is evident and he put me at ease as a complete beginner and gave me encouragement when I needed it. Chris taylors the lesson to what you want; for example if you wanted a lesson based more on theory or if you really just want to play along to songs. I look forward to my lessons every week and woud thoroughly recommend him.
As a complete beginner I needed to learn from someone who was a great guitar player. Once I did I soon came to realise I needed someone who was also a great teacher with bags of patience and an ability to pass on skills that anyone wishing to learn guitar would find invaluable. Chris is the man who can do all this. He's given me a structured approach to improving my playing, but also he's got a tremendous amount of experience to draw on, along with plenty of hints and tips. If you're looking for a knowledgable, dedicated tutor who plays at your speed then you'd be well advised to look no further than Chris. My lessons with Chris are very rewarding.
My 8 year old son loves his guitar lessons with Chris. He knew very little about music before he started. In just a matter of weeks Chris has taught him how to read music and he’s now playing confidently. More importantly Chris has made it fun with lots of enthusiasm and praise. My son looks forward to his lessons every week and is happy to do his guitar practice at home. When I asked him to describe in one word what he thought of his guitar lessons – he said `brilliant'.
I am a complete beginner and have been having weekly lessons with Chris for about four months now. I like his structured approach to teaching and am delighted with the steady progress I can see on a week by week basis. In the four months I have been learning with Chris I feel I have made a lot of progress including learning to read music and playing my guitar straight from sheet music, this is probably the thing I am the most pleased with as prior to having lessons with Chris I could only play from guitar TAB. Chris's friendly and encouraging style make the learning experience thoroughly enjoyable.
After trying to get by with learn to play guitar books and DVDs with little success I contacted Chris and arranged a guitar lesson. In just a few weeks my progress is amazing. Not only can I play something but he taught me how to read music which I never thought possible. There is no substitute for expert one-to-one tuition like Chris provides. Well worth every penny.
Some of my friends said I was mad to try to learn the guitar at my age but I’ve just had my eighth lesson with Chris. Even though I’m a complete beginner it’s been great fun and I’m making steady progress both with playing and reading music. Chris has been patient and encouraging and has made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Should’ve done it years ago! I would certainly recommend him to anyone – he’s enthusiastic, a great teacher and doesn’t put you under pressure or make you feel stupid. So despite the sore fingers, I love it and look forward to every lesson. Thanks Chris.
