Leave me a testimonial

In the time Jan has been teaching guitar at Budehaven Community School, take-up for electric guitar tuition has been significant. He has written a really unique programme of study which balances the development of such skills as literacy and technique with providing engaging pieces which the students enjoy playing.He has a most empathetic and enthusiastic teaching style – I have positive feedback from all his students.

He is also very good at encouraging students to perform. Last year he was a teacher on our Music Trip to South West Eire, and some of the students who could barely play a chord at the start of the week were performing at the end of the trip.

Richard Paddy – Head of Music, Budehaven Community School

Jan is a very inspiring and passionate music teacher. He has vast experience of the music buisness in all aspects, and has many wonderful stories to tell. I would thoroughly recomend him to anyone. His enthusiam never ends..

Charlotte Shemilt – Yr11, Budehaven Community School

Vic Hyde – Yr9, Budehaven Community School

Since meeting Jan I was instantly impressed with his intelligence towards music. He is very inspiring to anyone that wants to play guitar and continues to work hard at what he does. It would definetely be worth going to Jan for Guitar tuition as you will leave very well off, and happy with the experience and professionalism you recieved. As a personal friend, I believe Jan is very commited to teaching and loves the experience just as much as his clients do.

Aimee Gordon, 6th Form Budehaven Community School

As a complete beginner with no sense of rhythm or natural talent I have now had my first six lessons with Jan and I am amazed to be learning to play a beautiful Led Zeppelin song – can you believe that! With Jans encouragement, enthusiasm and patience I am optimistic that I will be able to attempt many songs and have a go at a range of different styles, basically if you pick a song you like Jan will teach you to play it. Sometimes its just nice to listen to him play, he is incredibly talented. In six weeks I have learnt so much more than I would have from a book or by myself; as you get more confident Jan teaches you more skills and techniques and everytime you learn something new from Jan its a real buzz. Needless to say, I have booked my next 5 lessons and I am looking forward to one day being able to play a whole range of music as I think if you stick with Jan the possibilities are endless.

Kate Stone, Bude

Jan is a very talented and hip Music Teacher, the best I have EVER had! He is very flexible with what you can do in his lessons, I would thoroughly recommend him to Musicians of all abilities.

Charlotte, Petroc College

Jan is an AWESOME ENTHUSIASTIC musician! He has really helped me learn lots of different songs, scales and guitar techniques. He teaches me what I want to learn. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to learn from a selection of stringed instruments or to improve their vocal and/or song writing skills. 😀
