Awesome guitar teacher. Encouraging and patient. Makes guitar lessons fun by focusing on music the student loves.

My 11 year old daughter has been having guitar lessons with Ben for about a year now. She loves learning to play songs that she can relate to and are modern. Ben has been extremely helpful in his advise and support in encouraging her to overcome her performing issues. I would highly recommend Ben as a guitar tutor - he is very approachable, friendly and helpful as well as giving our daughter an excellent guitar education.

At 59 years of age I decided to get serious about learning to play guitar after years of stopping and starting. I find Ben to be a very patient and knowledgeable tutor.I HIGHLY recommend him.

Ben was a great teacher and really easy to work with. He made learning really and worked with me at my pace. I enjoyed his attitude and his passion towards the guitar and I was so proud to be able to play my favourite song!

Ben's lessons are great. I must be the worst guitar student but he is very patient and great at pitching the lessons to my ability. My son now goes as well and is making huge progress.

Ben has been a great teacher. I was self taught electric guitar. Ben has helped to iron out my bad habits and teach me loads of new things. I had little or no knowledge of music theory. Ben has helped me heaps and I'm learning lots. Basically Ben is a all round awesome teacher.

I have started my lessons with Ben a few months ago and I really enjoy it. I learn so much every time, he always has something prepared on my personal preferences. He is patient, makes you feel comfortable and really listens to your input on what you want to achieve in your classes. He explains stuff very well, is also fun and easy going. His place is really easy to get to, the class room is small but well set up. All in all, the best guitar teacher I had so far and excellent value for money.

Ben is a great teacher and I highly recommend him. He is encouraging and patient and his teaching studio is clean, comfortable and quiet, providing an ideal environment to learn in. I started lessons as a beginner wanting to explore different genres and styles. Ben was incredibly accommodating, having appropriate material ready for me at every lesson. As well as fun and inspiring, the lessons are also very affordable. I find myself looking forward to my guitar lesson every week!

After self-teaching a lot of bad habits, Ben has been awesome and put me on the right track. Each lesson is catered to my wants, and Ben does a great job structuring to make sure I keep progressing technically. Would recommend to anyone happily.

Ben has been tutoring my three boys aged between 8 and 13 for over 6 months now. He has revitalised there interest in learning guitar and they enjoy his relaxed style of teaching. He deals with multiple student lessons well giving each student the time and encouragement they need to learn and develop at their own pace. I recommend Ben

I would highly recommend Ben to anyone wanting an education in music. I have had a few music teachers and Ben has been the first one that's actually taught me music theory and structure suited to my needs. He's easy to get along with and prepares lessons custom to your requirements. I plan on continuing my lessons with Ben and advise you to start aswell! Thanks mate

Ben has been an excellent guitar tutor. I have really appreciated his patient manner and the well-structured yet flexible approach he takes to planning his lessons. Highly recommended.

Ben is an excellent tutor, he was very patient with my 8 year old who had never had any sort of music experience beforehand. Lessons were well structured yet adaptable. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ben for anyone looking for music tuition.
