Frank has been teaching my son the electric guitar for the past 5 months. Hands down, he is extremly talented and has a special gift for teaching others. Highly recommended

Frank is hands down the best tutor/teacher for any musical instrument. Not only does he pay full attention to you when you're with him, he also has amazing patience and is understanding about the other work you may have outside of the weekly lessons. I have been with Frank for 7 years and he has taught me Acoustic guitar, Electric guitar, bass, drums and even a little singing! His music knowledge is greater than anyone I've seen and i would 110% recommend Frank as your music teacher! Hugo

Frank has been giving us lessons for about 2 years now, he's introduced a lot of live/stage experiences and opportunities for most if not all his students. He also encourages students to take exams to further improve their music capabilities. Frank is well versed in all types of music, both technical skill and theory. So whether you are a beginner at music or already have knowledge in music, I highly recommend having a chat with Frank because he will most definitely lift up your music!

I have been working with Frank every week for the last five years; Frank is a phenomenal tutor and mentor who has provided me with the skills and confidence to perform as the lead singer in my own rock band. He works with you at your own pace, to help you properly achieve your goals and bring out the best in every individual and band. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Frank as a music teacher; he has so much enthusiasm and such a lovely teaching manner that rubs off and inspires students to reach their full potential. Frank helped prepare me for my audition for Jazz performance at University. He is also someone I have chosen to pass students onto when I feel they are ready for band preparation. I am grateful for all the positive input . Tea Woodland

I was wondering if you give singing lessons to beginner adults, Frank? I am in my fifties and would need to start from scratch. Is this possible? I cannot read music. Just to be able to sing one song in tune would be lovely.

Frank has been my music tutor for years, and as a result of my busy study and work, I have been on and off quite a lot, but every time I come back to him, Frank was always passionate and ready to inspire me with his fun and approachable ways of teaching. After all these years of lessons and actual performances, music was indeed made more interesting and rewarding. Thank you Frank! Excellent teacher! I would highly recommend his lessons! - Dan

I have recently completed 10 sessions of guitar and voice tuition with Frank and found it to be a fun and enjoyable experience. I am not the most committed student and so his understanding and kind manner made it easier for me to feel relaxed during the lesson. I would recommend him for both areas of tuition. Thankyou Frank. Regards Helen.
