Recent Review - "I have been having online guitar lessons with Lewis for around six months and he has really helped me improve my playing. I have previously tried to learn from You Tube videos and other guitar courses but nothing is as good as having a personal tutor who can tailor lessons to suit your own needs. It is also a great way to keep motivated and achieve targets. Lewis is an excellent teacher and a great bloke. He is patient and enthusiastic and makes learning fun. I would recommend him to anyone wishing to improve their playing." - Patrick Slater
