‘Chris came recommended to me by a brilliant guitar teacher who has a fantastic rapport with his own pupils – I rate his opinion. Chris’ lessons are really great, lots of fun and flexibly led by what my children want to build on. He’s got them going really quickly with some rewarding grooves, which keeps them motivated and keen. Friendly and easy going, just the sort of teacher we were looking for.’
Chris is a very supportive, encouraging and enthusiastic teacher, his lessons are lots of fun and pass too quickly!
