What people say about us

We try hard to deliver guitar courses which meet hobbyists’ wants (and needs) but in a fun way and which builds confidence and a motivation to get out there and just play some great music. Here are a few short comments about our courses.

A few bits of feedback

 “…. Having experienced Intro to Jazz, I know it was not only delivered by a gifted teacher but designed/structured by a skilled educator. The result was insightful and illuminating. I’m looking forward to putting it into practice.”

“ What a superb weekend that was! Thanks to all of you for your excellent company, not to mention that endless line of glasses of red wine that seemed to come my way on the Saturday night (from what I can remember).   Tutor, inspirational.   It’s interesting how the great players simplify it all down.  Thanks for the seamless organisation.  .”

“Great Strugglers weekend . Thanks to all of you for making it interesting and relevant to all of us.  The tutor is an excellent teacher and I found his style of presentation ideal for strugglers like me.

Last word!

“….once again thanks for the weekend, which was fantastic! Please let me know as soon as the March date and title is confirmed, so that I can book my place!”

Marios J

“…. just a quick note to say thanks for this last weekend.  I had a great time and have brought home a load of new challenges.

Thanks for the opportunity to be stretched. It was great to meet so many different people, all at different levels of abilities and experience, and wanting different things from the weekend, but all wanting one common thing and that is to improve; and I’m sure that everyone did.

 The tutor was great, and I really appreciate the efforts that you went to, to ensure that everyone was having a good time, both guitaring and with regard to the accommodation.  You were a great host. We’d both like to return for another course, probably next year. “
