"I really look forward to my lessons each week with Mark. He makes me feel comfortable and I am enjoying playing songs by my favourite artists such as Paul Weller."
"I always enjoy my lessons with Mark, who has, over the years, guided me through many music styles with patience and humour. Now James is learning too and I watch in amazement as Mark adjusts his teaching style to suit James and am delighted with the enthusiasm with which James is embracing his new instrument."
I have now committed myself to learning the drums. I have a patient and encouraging Teacher called Tim. I decided to go to Mark’s music school as I have a teenage son who has been doing electric guitar lessons there. He has thoroughly enjoyed his lessons, and now is furthering his enjoyment and learning by joining one of the Rock Bands. Playing in these bands just tops it all off really. Putting it all together, and being a part of that is just a great thing! Nita Cooper
Jared has been learning guitar with you for quite a few years and has really been able to relate to his teachers. They have kept him inspired to learn. At 16 he is now playing professionally and still learning. He looks forward to his lessons every week. Since starting keyboard lessons with you as well he is learning fast and loving it.
My son started High school this year but wasn't interested in taking music as a class subject. However much to our surprise he has somehow become involved with a group of boys who have formed a "band" who meet for an hour before school starts, once a week, to play. It takes a lot to get him going in the mornings so this is quite a big deal!!
Thank you to you and your teachers for your part in this.
"I am finally playing music by my favourite artists Deke Dickerson and Django Reinhardt"
"Mark's great at simplifying songs for the beginner, meaning my daughter and I are learning the guitar having fun playing songs we want to play."

"Having loved music of many styles and seen my children through their musical foundations I took up the classical guitar at a mature age. Mark is constantly patient and encouraging. He has a great knowledge of what music will suit me and has encouraged me to attend guitar recitals and listen to professional classical guitarists. I am thoroughly enjoying developing my skills as a guitar player and Mark always ensures the lessons are enjoyable which is what music is all about."
"My boys are truly inspired and motivated by the dedicated, enthusiastic guitar teachers at the studio."
"We had various experiences before finding Mark's studio, now, thanks to the wonderful teachers, my boys love their lessons and have real enthusiasm for guitar. The flexibility and value suit me too!"
Having recently retired at the age of 82, I’ve decided to do all the things I’ve ever been interested in but never had the time to do. Top of the list is music, especially the guitar.
I find it interesting, fascinating and an enjoyable challenge that’s getting the mind and fingers working. I can recommend it to anyone.
"Mark is a great teacher of all styles. Over the years I have learned to read music and have gotten into classical, jazz and rock pieces."
"Lessons with Mark have greatly improved my slapping and popping techniques. As a bass player this is something I have always wanted to be able to do."
