Course testimonials:

  • said: Stopped attending because despite about 3 hours practice each week I wasn't able to keep up with most of the class. Tutor commented that class was progressing faster than expected - so maybe some of the other participants were not real beginners. This was very distracting when playing in the class. Felt it took my confidence away. Venue good but inconvenient to get to. Would have been encouraged to attend if tutor had have said at the end of the class what we would be doing the next week - I might have had the confidence that I'd eventually catch up or even be able to achieve my personal goals.

  • said: Five stars

  • said: This was fantastic! Dylan is a wonderful teacher - he teaches in a really thoughtful and intentional way giving us a variety of music to develop different skills. He also gives us space to practice and learn while also leaving room for our brains and hands to rest as he chats through concepts. I really appreciated the teaching approach. While i wasn't apprehensive at all, I also enjoyed learning in a group environment way more than i thought i would - i wouldn't do it differently!

  • said: It was fun with a relaxing environment and Dillon was a great teacher. Will be going into the intermediate class with him next.

  • said: This is a wonderful course for beginners! I highly recommend it to anyone who has ever thought they would like to play the guitar. It’s not long before you feel very at home strumming away with your class mates.
