When I moved from Germany 18 months ago, I was looking for a guitar teacher and I found Nick through his website I really enjoy attending every week the lessons with Nick, He is a fantastic guitar player and teacher with soooo a huge patience For all who wants to learn or to improve playing guitar, I can fully recommend Nicks lessons

Domenico Caporaso,

Nicola Allsop

It's never too late! With the impending arrival of my 50th birthday I decided to take the plunge and try to achieve something I have wanted to do for years. Clear in the knowledge that I had little or no musical talent, I called Nick and arranged my first guitar lesson.

Two years on and I can play tunes that I grew up with, which I find very rewarding. It's a great switch off from work.
Nick has a calm,professional style that has guided me to achieve A higher level of playing ability than certainly I thought possible. His enthusiasm for you to learn and develop,matched with a structured approach is ideal for students of all abilities and ages.

Now i'm not saying I am at the same level as Dave Gilmour or Jimmy Page yet, but with practice who knows, (maybe when I am a bit older!!)

Nicola Allsop,

Bob King

Nick is an experienced and extremely well accomplished guitar player with the personality and people skills to enable him to teach very successfully.

Lessons are fun, interesting and in a friendly atmosphere with no pressure, he is patient and understanding of the difficulties of the learning process but always instils in me the confidence to improve my guitar playing and set new personal goals.

Nick has a wide and impressive knowledge of music past and present and tailors his lessons to suit the aims and personal musical preferences of each student as well as having the ability to cover many different techniques, playing styles and theory.

Nick's truly effective teaching method allows me to learn at my own pace and moves forward only when I have acquired the ability and confidence to take on new challenges and aspects of guitar playing.

I have been attending lessons with Nick for just over two years and find the way I learn and practice incredibly enjoyable. His knowledge about the guitar, along with his passion for sharing and passing on his skills, means he is an ideal teacher for people of all ages wanting to learn.

Karen Goulden

"Nick will teach you what you want to learn. I've been learning theory, various styles, pop, rock, blues, classical, fingerpicking and techniques.

Nick is structured, providing printouts of your work so you can go back to it later. He will also find tunes which you want to play.

If you have trouble with one way of learning, he will try to find a way to suit you. He is easygoing, doesn't push, but suggests what you need to do to move on."

“I was surprised at how well online lessons work - It's just like having lessons in person and the lesson sheets are sent over via skype.

I avoid extra fuel costs and traffic, plus I'm learning in the comfort of my own home”
