A great learning experience
Had a great time learning Harmonica with John. Very informal/fun tuition (mainly me laughing at my attempts to emulate John). John kept the music theory information to a minimal level which was good for me but was very knowledgeable and was able to explain things I had read on Google etc regarding music theory e.g. playing Harmonica in different positions, Rule of 5ths etc.
Thoroughly recommend John to anyone wishing to learn the Harmonica or any of the other instruments he teaches.

Great harmonica teacher
John taught me how to play the harmonica from scratch. His teaching style is patient and unhurried and he keeps the lessons varied and interesting. I have thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with John which were time well spent and good value for money. I recommend him.

My Guitar lessons with John
I've been with John for getting on for 2 years now and im extremely pleased with the tuition he gives.Hes very patient and moves along at my pace,im a very slow learner,but when i look back at when i first started learning to what learnt and what i can do now on the guitar,i couldn't be more pleased.
I wanted to learn the guitar as a hobby,John has understood that,and that is how i've progressed.
I couldn't praise John more and would definitely recommend John.
Ive started from knowing nothing and more than pleased with where i am now.

Tutoring Approach:

I'll teach you chords at lightning speed. How to hold a pick correctly. Some easy songs for guitar beginners. How to strum with rhythm. I can also teach you advance techniques that are not that difficult which will enhance your playing experience and keep you motivated.

I also teach Classical Guitar in addition Rock Guitar
As already mentioned I tutor Mandolin, Banjo, Ukulele and Harmonica in the same basic format as the guitar

With the Harmonica there are different techniques of course such as note bending cupping and harmonica positions
