    • Lisa & Steven
    • Rob’s enthusiastic yet patient teaching style allows me to progress at my own pace. I can’t recommend him enough!

    • Neil Sanders
    • I have been seeing Rob for guitar lessons for a few years now.  I am a guitar teacher myself and Rob has given me lots of confidence he really knows his stuff.

    • Karen Hubbard
    • I have been having guitar lessons with Rob for six months or so. He is really welcoming and friendly and sessions are relaxed and are at a pace that works to suit me. I get to choose the stuff I enjoy playing rather than being told what to play which makes a big difference to me and means I learn because I’m enjoying it and want to practice inbetween sessions. I have really come along way since starting with him, because I think he believes in
      me and my capabilities and cares about his students and tailors sessions to the individual.

    • Mandy Martin
    • Thanks Rob. Wish the school teachers were more like you, think they would get better results!!

      I like the way you really care about Oli

    • Paul vale
    • Rob is an outstanding teacher and has helped me enormously with his flexible, patient and professional approach

    • Justin Fisher
    • Having started as a complete beginner I found Rob to be very friendly, taking the time to find out what I wanted to learn.

      Lessons are adapted to suit what it is you want to play. Rob is very knowledgeable and offers plenty of support when there are elements I do not understand. I would highly recommend anyone willing to try Rob as a teacher.

      You will be rocking in no time….

    • Vic Roberts
    • Hi my name is Vic and i have been taking lessons from Rob for a few months now. I have tried a few teachers in the past but I think Rob is an excellent teacher by comparison. He is friendly easy going and makes the lessons enjoyable. Also it is nice to take lessons in a proper studio rather than someones front room. If you want to learn guitar or already play and want some advanced lessons I highly recommend Rob as a teacher.
