As a parent, looking for a music tutor can be daunting, but Neil certainly alleviated any apprehensions when our young son started lessons with him over two years ago. Now aged ten, he has confidently progressed at a pace suited to him, gradually learning and building on techniques. My son thoroughly enjoys his lessons and often comments on how great his teacher is. We would always recommend Neil as a friendly, competent tutor.

I have known Neil for three years and the tuition given by him is excellent. He carefully plans my lessons around my abilities. His encouragement, skill, knowledge and patience are enabling me to achieve my ambition to play the guitar and to read and write music.

I have been taking my ten year old granddaughter for two years to Neil for guitar lessons, it has been a terrific boost for Madalyn not only learning to play but her confidence has come on in leaps and bounds so thank-you NEIL.

My 9-year-old son has been learning guitar with Neil for about a year. Neil does an amazing job of keeping his attention and varies the lessons to include a great mix of reading music, listening to and identifying notes, and playing guitar. He even sets homework that my son wants to do - no mean feat! We are very happy with the lessons and we'll make sure Neil is credited in the sleeve notes of my boy's first album. :-)

Neil's lessons are always enjoyable! I started learning to play the guitar three years ago having never played an instrument and thanks to Neil's instruction I have recently taken my grade 4 RGT electric guitar exam. His lessons are regularly one of the best parts of my week, they are very relaxed but are also structured to provide plenty of information and advice. I would highly recommend learning the guitar with Neil!

My son Tom who is 14 years old and been having guitar lessons with Neil for 2 years now, he really enjoys his lessons its relaxed and he enjoys learning all different songs.
Neil makes Tom feel very welcome, he always enjoys the lessons as they are entertaining and different each time, with all the stress of exams it’s a great way for him or anyone to switch off for an hour or so.

I've been having lessons with Neil for 4 years, currently working through my electric guitar grades to build up my UCAS points for university. Neil has always found a way to make the lessons work around my 'out there' music taste, making it enjoyable to learn as I can play the songs/music that I like.
