'Paul has taught our son classical guitar for three years with great patience and kindness. Paul prepared him for success in his AMEB exam and is always flexible in his approach to lessons to tailor them personally. Highly recommended' (Sam, May 2019).
'Paul is a very gifted guitarist and teacher alike. He has several different teaching methods to keep challenging you in different ways. Each lesson was personalised to my own skills and he goes the extra mile by creating exercises or transcribing rare songs you're interested in. You won't get this from YouTube or from a less experienced teacher' (Matt Andrews, March 2019)

Patient, kind and extremely talented, he has helped me take my skills to a whole new level and has reignited my love of learning to play the guitar.
