"Al is not just an excellent teacher but a great guy. If my experience is anything to go by, he communicates well, adapts to what his students want to achieve, and then helps them on their way with friendly and insightful explanations and advice. I’d wholeheartedly recommend him for anybody, beginner or advanced, looking to become a great guitar player"
Tom Newham, Current Student
"Al is a friendly and passionate teacher who really takes into account what you want to achieve and your personal taste in music. I started lessons as a guitar novice and now have the confidence to play at gigs and open mic nights. My lessons were relaxed and Al made me feel at ease, even when I was making a lot of mistakes. He also challenged me so I learnt as much as I could. Couldn’t recommend him enough!"
Felicity Burgis, Former Student
"Al is a fantastic teacher, always really patient and enthusiastic. Always happy to go over anything multiple times and help with anything outside of our lessons if needed. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to start lessons!"
Laura Moffitt, Current Student
"Al teaches the guitar the way it should be - practical music and theory introduced in a fun and interesting way!"
"Al is a very laid back and experienced guitar teacher. He gives some structure to the classes, but at the same time lets you choose the songs you want to play and directs the lessons towards your goals. I was a complete beginner and I feel like I have improved so much since starting lessons with Al. I would certainly recommend having lessons with him."
