 Approached Ben for guitar lessons some time ago as I was getting nowhere trying to teach myself – knew a couple of chords but could barely play them with any conviction. It was like being, frustratingly, stuck in a rut, but with Ben's incredible skill in breaking things down, guidance and yes, patience I soon started to really learn to play (and to play the music I enjoy listening to). I can honestly say that I enjoy every minute of my guitar lessons with Ben, am progressing and see there is still much to learn. My appreciation of the guitar and guitar players has grown massively and I feel I listen to music much better. I would, wholeheartedly, recommend Ben as a guitar tutor as without him my guitar would be gathering dust in a cupboard.

 I have been going to guitar lessons for a few months now and have learnt a lot from Ben. Ben is such an amazing teacher! He is very patient, and inspires me to go on with my guitar when I see him play, you can tell he has a lot of experience. He will always go at the pace that is best suited to you so you always get the very best out of what you are learning and are able to understand fully, He never pushes you too hard, but encourages you to do well in the kindest way possible. I'm so happy that I went to Ben to teach me guitar, I don't think I could have found a better teacher.

Ben has been teaching me lead guitar since I started as a complete beginner. I have really enjoyed my lessons and I feel as though I have made good progress while having great fun. Ben's teaching style is easygoing and light-hearted but at the same time very instructive both musically and technically. I would recommend Ben to anyone who wants to sound good fast and learn in a no pressure atmosphere.
