Elliott taught guitar at my school for 4 years. He was always punctual, well-presented and planned his appropriately understanding the needs of the individual students. He liaised with me regarding exam preparation and he provided a detailed written report to parents on an annual basis. More recently, he led a song writing workshop with a small group of students. They responded positively to him and were keen to compose and try out ideas. Elliott quickly identified who needed extra support and did this subtly with an encouraging approach. Elliott is an exceptional role model; a very talented guitarist, teacher, songwriter and performer. I would commend him wholeheartedly.
