What our students say…

Rhys is not only a brilliant guitar teacher but a genuinely nice guy and I really can’t recommend him enough! He has been teaching my 7 year old daughter for a year now and the effort he puts in to engaging with her and keeping lessons fun and interesting is amazing. Rhys has helped advise on guitars to buy and has also helped record a backing track for a recording studio party that we held for her birthday and her confidence in both playing guitar and singing has increased so much I am sure due to Rhys’ encouraging and supportive attitude. Thanks Rhys for all your hard work!

Parent/Student

Your wasting your time going anywhere else. Real good at describing everything in simple terms. Giving you the skills/theory to actually play/understand the guitar to a high level.

Rhys is a fantastic teacher. My son was a complete beginner when he started and now he is confident in playing lots of different songs. Rhys is a great teacher, who I would happily recommend to anyone wanting to either learn from scratch or brush up on their skills.

Parent

Rhys is a fantastic teacher! My son has been with him since a beginner and he has now just taken his Grade 3 guitar exam.He loves his lessons and I think he would like to class Rhys as a friend as well as his teacher. Rhys is calm, encouraging and always wanting to get the best out of his students! Thanks Rhys!

Parent

I never thought I’d be able to play, but Rhys had me up and running playing some of my favourite songs within weeks of picking up the instrument. Now, a few months on and I’m finding the confidence and compentency to write (as well as sing!) my own songs. My only regret is that I didn’t start lessons sooner. thanks Rhys!

My 6 year daughter has been having guitar lessons with Ryhs for 1 year now and I can honestly say that she loves it! Rhys is a great teacher- he has great attention to detail, explains (in simple, age-appropriate language) what he has taught, and makes the lessons fun and enjoyable for my daughter. I would highly recommend this experienced, knowledgeable teacher to any parent whose child is interested in learning how to play the guitar- or indeed even vocal coaching ( he has a great singing voice too!). Rhys is highly talented and highly recommended!

Rhys has been coaching our jam band for a couple of years and has taken us from a bunch of guys struggling to keep the beat to playing little local festivals with 45 minute sets. Great guy great coach.

Student

I’ve been having singing lessons with Rhys for almost 4 years now and I’ve been so happy with my progress. I started out a complete beginner and made fast progress with Rhys’ help. Rhys continually finds ways to challenge me a bit more each time to help me get better and better but without knocking my confidence. It’s mostly been practical, singing actual songs, but often with a well placed vocal exercise to work on a specific technique. I’m now able to sing all kinds of things I never expected I’d manage!

Student

Rhys is an awesome tutor and has an excellent way of working through any weaknesses within my playing and offers really good advice when I am struggling creatively. I Look forward to my weekly session every week still five years on!
