      I went in to my first lesson with Adam as a complete beginner and he quickly got me up to speed on the basics of guitar. He was easy to get along with and taught a wide range of styles. While learning with him I quickly progressed on guitar as he has a wide range of knowledge on theory as well as the many different techniques used to play guitar. I very much enjoyed my lessons with Adam and would highly recommend him.

      My son started guitar lessons at school and became very disillusioned by his teacher, since changing to Adam a year ago his playing is progressing well and he's really enjoying guitar. Adam is a brilliant teacher, incredibly patient and very enthusiastic. Adam gets the balance right between challenging him with new pieces but not excessively so and a fun mix of music, both classic and contemporary keeps my son interested and willing to practice. I would happily recommend Adam without any hesitation.

      Adam is a very patient teacher and a nice guy too. He really helped me to move my playing to the next level and improved my technique. I will go back for more lessons.
