My Reviews

I am pleased to let you know that we have just heard that Joe passed his Grade 1 RGT Guitar with Distinction.
I also wanted to say thank you for your patience, skill, enthusiasm and ability as a teacher. You make the lessons informative as well as fun creating a perfect learning environment and I am sure this was a major contributor towards Joe’s success. He is keen to proceed quickly to Grade 2 and I know you will have him ready in time as well as finding time to teach him the Ed Sheeran and other tunes he is keen to learn.
Please share this email with any prospective clients as a reference and if they wish to contact me directly I will be pleased to answer any questions they may have.
Kind regards
Graham Prince

"I wanted to learn how to play the guitar, as an absolute beginner i didn't even have a clue about the anatomy of guitar let alone knowing how to play it. His easy-going manner, his ability to take it at a pace that allows even the slowest students like myself to develop has given me the confidence to develop a drive and passion to learn. Each week, it's small manageable steps that has allowed me not to lose motivation. If you are an absolute beginner and want someone to gently motivate you..Sam is the best choice for you and you will be learning from someone who clearly has talent, professionalism and intelligence."

"Sam is an excellent guitar teacher, and a fun person to be around. The atmosphere is always friendly, relaxed and engaging. At the same time there is absolutely no compromise on the quality of work.
When i first met Sam, it was apparent straight away that he has a keen ear, and very quickly understood my (few) strengths and (many) weaknesses as a guitar player. Playing any musical instrument requires great attention to small detail and Sam particularly excels at this.
I have faced many obstacles with my playing, and every time I've hit a brick wall, Sam has always displayed wit, intelligence and imagination in abundance to help me overcome these difficulties.
That I can play the instrument a little bit now is entirely as a result of the excellence of Sam's teaching.

Sam has been teaching acoustic and electric guitar to my 10 year old son for the past 6 months. Sam is a dedicated and patient teacher who works hard to engage the student. I have been present in the lessons and I am very pleased with the way Sam teaches.
My son is making good progress in playing the guitar.

Sam's a great teacher. He's very patient and goes out of his way to find music that I'm interested in, so I'm motivated to practise and lessons are fun. Highly recommend!
