There may be many "guitar teachers" but there’s only one that I’d ever recommend. Mark taught my son Andy from the first note he played and guided him to a distinction at Grade 8. He is a gifted teacher, a musical mentor, role model and his exceptional skills as a musician have become the benchmark for excellence.
Mark is an exceptionally patient and knowledgeable tutor who is able to teach a very broad range of different styles of music. He helped me achieve very high results with my RGT grades (98%) and throughout the 14 years I’ve known him he has been an invaluable source of help with everything from original compositions and choosing equipment, to transposing difficult pieces.
Not only is Mark a brilliant teacher, he's also an inspiring guitarist with a wide-ranging repertoire. Couldn't be happier after 11 years of lessons with him!
The decision to learn to play the guitar at c 40 years of age, from a guy with no rhythm or understanding of music, was a big ask for a music teacher. Mark has been teaching me for the last 3/4 years, and has always taught me music I wanted to learn, thereby keeping me interested and wanting to master the next tune. I have enjoyed every lesson, and find his style of tuition relaxed and encouraging. Besides which he is a fabulous musician!
Mark has taught both my son guitar and now my daughter bass guitar! I can highly recommend him as a friendly and professional teacher.
