Paul's enthusiasm in teaching motivates me to pick my guitar up and practice. He is a fantastic teacher with a vast... knowledge of guitar theory and has the practical application to accompany it. He is very patient and adjusts his lessons to the pace of the student but always manages to keep a lesson theme and gives very thorough and clear notes for the student to take away and practice with.I cannot recommend him highly enough!read more

Paul's theory knowledge and playing is unmatched in my experience of teachers, he is a real pleasure to learn from.... Every lesson is as engaging as the last and his emails post lesson are very useful for notes and for reference. I would highly recommend any level of musician starting with Paul. I do not live locally to Paul and the online sessions are convenient and just as good as any face to face more

Paul’s friendly teaching style and his use of technology (screen sharing while using software to produce tailored... notes, tablature and chord boxes) bring a whole new dimension to my learning. The notes are forwarded immediately after the lesson so that I can start embedding the learning straight away. The online lessons work extremely well and have the added bonus of zero travel time!read more

My son has been having lessons with Paul for a while now, with them moving online during lockdown. Paul has really... developed his confidence with playing the guitar and he enjoys the variety of music and skills he is taught, with the added bonus of all lesson notes being emailed through to help with practise. If you are looking for a guitar teacher, I would definitely recommend more

Paul's online lessons are well delivered, informative, and great value. Paul is an incredibly knowledgeable and skilled... musician, and is great at communicating new ideas clearly and concisely. His online lessons have a number of advantages over in-person lessons, such as the ability to instantly share digital teaching materials (chord diagrams and tabs, for example), and Paul really takes advantage of these assets. I would absolutely recommend his guitar tuition to more

Paul teaches my three sons guitar. Two have online lessons and one has lessons in school. We swapped teachers for the... boys to learn with Paul and started online lessons in lockdown. As a result of Paul’s teaching my boys have really developed quickly and love playing. They play for hours and have started a band. Online lessons are really convenient and Paul sends all the notes and music by email so I can see what they are learning and so they always have notes from their lessons to practice from. I have no hesitation in recommending more

Paul is highly qualified and his lessons are naturally of the highest quality - I have made more progress in the few... months I've been taking video lessons than I had done in years on my own and the online format means I'm able to fit in an hour of quality tuition every other week around my awkward work schedule. I really appreciate the resources, notes and fretboard diagrams too as it helps to focus valuable practice time. Thank you Paul!read more

Paul began tutoring my son as an absolute beginner. He is a superb teacher and my son’s confidence as a guitarist has... improved massively. Paul’s lessons are always fun, and he spends time explaining theory as well as teaching songs. His knowledge and skills as a guitarist are exemplary and my son always looks forward to his lessons. I would recommend Paul to more
