Incredibly Happy with My Lessons : Natasha

   “I have been taking lessons with Adam for just over a year now. Prior to beginning I had been self-taught for a number of years and had found myself stuck in a rut with no idea how to progress. During my first lesson, Adam helped identify areas in which I was less advanced than others, and we proceeded to work on those. In just a few weeks, I was seeing progress. A year on, I am a much better player than I had ever thought possible. This is testament to Adam’s skill as a teacher, and his enthusiasm for, and dedication to, teaching. Adam is also very easy to get along with and lessons are always a comfortable environment for making mistakes – and then learning from them! Lessons have always been varied and tailored to my needs and interests – a mixture of the RGT acoustic guitar syllabus (I am currently working my way through the Grade 4 book) and contemporary and classic songs from Adam’s extensive list of tabs – and I always look forward to them. I have been incredibly happy with my lessons and progress so far and couldn’t recommend Adam enough as a teacher.” – Natasha

He Got a Grade 8 Distinction! : Enilda

   “I would highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a professional guitar teacher. When I was looking for a guitar teacher for my son, I watched a YouTube video on Adam’s website and I could see that he was a gifted guitarist and I decided to contact him straight away. Adam is absolutely passionate about guitar. His love for the guitar is evident in his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He taught my son grade 8 guitar. My son enjoyed every minute of his lessons. I am tremendously grateful for everything he taught my son and I am happy with my son’s result in his Rockschool exam. He got a grade 8 distinction!” – Enilda

Highly Recommended! : John

   “I was almost an absolute beginner when I started lessons with Adam and he gave me a great foundation to work on. I’m now at a level I never expected to be. I started using apps like Yousician, but they’re just not a substitute for a good teacher. They can teach you what to play but not how it’s best to. Adam stopped me from getting into bad playing habits and has taught both the theory and the practical side to me, so I can learn more on my own and be a better player. His comments are constructive and he’s very patient, so if you put the practice in you won’t be disappointed. Highly recommended!” – John

Friendly but Firm : Olivia

   “Adam has been teaching my children, aged 8 and 10, to play acoustic and electric guitar for over a year after I found him by chance on a website. We have a weekly schedule and he never fails to be reliable. He has high expectations of the children to be attentive and committed to their learning and therefore Adam gets results. He develops a personal relationship with the children over time so they feel comfortable with him and his professionalism and knowledge commands respect. Adam prides himself on teaching the ‘right way’ and instilling a discipline in the children. He is friendly but firm. If my children continue to play the guitar into their adult years I can honestly say that it will be part due to the strong foundation Adam has provided for them.” – Olivia

I Quickly Progressed : Alex

   “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.” – Alex

Highly Recommend Adam as a Guitar Teacher : William

   “Highly recommend Adam as a guitar teacher, i learnt a lot while having lessons from him and my playing really improved and he got me into some great music too.” – William

He Allowed Me to Build a Passion : Nicolas

   “Over the course of 2011-2013 I was taught by Adam. I had owned a guitar for about a year prior to starting lessons, but took no interest in it, nor did I know any of the basics at all. I came to his lessons as a complete amateur and would have to be built from the ground up if I wanted to get anywhere. Adam was very patient with me and understood that I was a bit of a slow learner to the guitar, and kept lessons both enthusiastic and enjoyable. Eventually I found myself learning more things much more rapidly, and he allowed me to broaden my musical taste significantly. I went from somebody who listened to a very small pool of heavy metal bands, to learning and both loving new sounds in jazz, funk, indie, blues, as well as broadening my taste in heavy metal. Adam is an excellent teacher who is able to adapt lessons to your needs and is extremely easy to get along with. he allowed me to build a passion for something I never thought I would do. He makes you feel comfortable and confident in yourself so that you do not become insecure when you make mistakes, and he is a teacher that I would highly recommend anybody to have.” – Nicolas

Technical Ability Staggering! : Steve

   “Adam was my guitar teacher while I was at college, and I would’ve happily continued lessons with him if I hadn’t gone off to uni, partially his own fault as his lessons helped me get enough grades to top my UCAS points up! It’s now been several years since I moved away, and the more I’ve improved the more I’ve come to realise how skilled he is. Not only is his technical ability staggering, he was also one of the most relaxed and chilled teachers I’ve ever had, yet one of the most effective.” – Steve

Truly One of The Best! : Sandy

   “Adam is a great teacher that brought me from an absolute novice to being able to play along with my favourite songs as well as create my own. He was able to teach me theory in a fun, compelling way and helped me to understand the different ways in which knowing theory makes you a better guitar player. Adam is truly one of the best!” – Sandy
