From M Robson

"Since starting lessons with Joel I have actually seen marked progress within myself. Joel takes the time to listen to your questions and provides good advice and examples to re-enforce the content. His varied and flexible approach combined with the variety of music continually inspires me to put the practice time in at home. Joel's studio is very well equipped and comfortable for the student (and any waiting parent). I have already referred a friend to Joel and his tuition is ongoing!"

From S Hobholm

"Just a quick note to say thank-you for all the work you did with Tom. He thoroughly enjoyed your lessons and made fast progress. You have inspired and encouraged him and as a result he will always have
his guitar close by." 

From R Simpson

"I have been a student of Joel’s for over 2 years now, starting as a complete beginner. He has always been kind and patient, and has tailored his teaching to my likes and dislikes. His wealth of knowledge and experience is obvious from the wide range of genres the lessons have covered; to the way I’ve not yet managed ask a question that he hasn’t been able to answer! I would certainly recommend Joel to anyone who would like to learn the guitar."

From M Herbert

"Can I just take this opportunity to say a "BIG thank you Joel for putting up with me". I really enjoy my lessons with you so much, I always look forward to coming over" 

From R Hillman

Joel's knowledge, skill and teaching ability have made learning the guitar a very rewarding and enjoyable experience. At all times patient and professional, his encouragement has enabled me to make the progress that I hoped for and that drives me to put in the essential daily practice."

From D Wray

"Can't thank you enough mate. Hard to believe it's been 11 years. Going to be very hard to find a better musician, teacher or nicer guy to study under at Leeds (ed.College of music). I'm sure it's not going to be the last time I'll be intrigued or moved by a new concept, technique or artist you introduce me to."
