Rowan is my 11-year-old daughter’s clarinet tutor. He is a great tutor, already encouraging and full of support. He treats his job seriously and genuinely care about his students. He is truly responsible and puts in full effort to help his students. My daughter got distinction in Grade 5 ABRSM exam thanks to his great effort. Truly appreciate and I recommend him to anyone who wants to take clarinet lessons. Many thanks Rowan!

Rowan is an excellent tutor and I would recommend him to child and adult students alike. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a great gift at explaining concepts in a clear and concise manner. He is also very enthusiastic and that is highly contagious! Best Regards Deborah Thompson

I am in my late thirties and suddenly I had one idea that I really want to learn clarinet. I even did not know how to start and where to start. I was also worried if it is hard and I could not learn fast and would give up in one day...I am lucky to have Rowan as my tutor. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and professional. He gave me lots of guidance and confidence, which always make the classes funny and easy to learn. I believe I CAN keep it up with Rowan's solid support. Thank you!

Rowan has been my clarinet teacher for a year and I have been absolutely enjoying my lessons with him. Rowan is highly professional and committed, he doesn't only teach me techniques behind it but always inspires me to be a better musician. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who wishes to pick up the instrument!

I recently started taking clarinet lessons off Rowan and I am really enjoying it! Every lesson is very inspiring and motivating, which means I have made progress much quicker than I ever thought I could. Rowan is very pedagogical, patient and encouraging which makes a great combination! He comes highly recommended!
