"Best music teacher we've ever had hands down! Jamie has a real connection with the kids and encourages them when they’ve gone wrong rather than make them look stupid. He has a genuine friendly demeanour and is a really nice guy. He knows when to push them along and when to hold back, when to work hard and when to have fun. I have recommended Jamie to others and will continue to do so." - Lucy
"Jamie is an amazingly talented musician and guitar teacher.
Very professional. I've learned so much in such a short space of time" - Joel
"Jamie’s joy of music is infectious and gave my son back his love for guitar. In sharing his clear aims for the lessons, my son has had identifiable goals which he always finds motivating. Jamie has always sort to tailor the music studied to my son's tastes and ability. This flexibility has helped my son's musical abilities mature more quickly. All instructions are well prepared and careful notes are taken so that each lesson builds on what has previously been taught." - Karen
