Here is what some of my pupils have to say about my teaching:
Jon provided a trial lesson at which time we set 3,
6 and 12 month goals. A year later I feel I have hit 90% of those
goals and am ready to set the next set. I take lessons about once
every 3 weeks. Each lesson we go through the items I have been set in the previous lesson and am given a host of new things to get to grips with. These have been tailored to my needs and if I suggest a new style or artist Jon includes it where possible in the next lesson.
I really enjoy the guitar lessons I have with Jon. As someone who has been playing for guitar for a number of years now but wants to play in a more imaginative, creative and varied style I have found Jon enthusiastically responsive to what I want to explore and develop. For me, it’s been important to have a teacher who is so good humoured and adaptable and who teaches from his own well spring: a deep and abiding love of music …
Jon really understands the needs and requests of his pupils. He’s also blessed with the patients of a saint. Lessons are well thought out and always leave you moving forward in your achievements with the practice plan helping identify areas of development in between lessons.I’ve had many music teachers over the years; Jon is easily the best!
I had, for some time, wanted to learn to play the acoustic guitar and, having finally set myself the challenge, I found Jon’s details on Gumtree and got in touch. Jon was very helpful from the outset, advising me on the best guitar for my needs. I now have lessons about once a fortnight. Jon is always very friendly, patient and, above all, professional – I’d definitely recommend him to all aspiring guitar players!
