We started out as total beginners…

“My son and I have been learning the Guitar with Richard for about a year now. We started out as total beginners, I had an old acoustic guitar and just wanted to learn for fun and James wanted to play the electric Guitar.

James and I really enjoy our weekly lessons, we have learnt loads, thanks to Richard’s patient and steady approach to teaching. We have enjoyed choosing the music we want to play both old and new!”

Guitar lessons for my birthday…

“My wife bought a month of guitar lessons for my birthday. Previously I had trying learning guitar by watching internet videos, but I found it difficult to learn this way. Since starting to learn guitar with Richard my progress on the guitar has increased a great deal. I can ask any questions I want, and Richard breaks down difficult topics to make them easy to understand.”

A neighbour recommended Blue Wave Guitar…

“We had found it difficult to find a guitar tutor for our son in the local area. A neighbour recommended Blue Wave Guitar Tuition to us after their son had come for lessons. We have found Richard to be professional, friendly and our son loves learning guitar at Blue Wave.”

Playing guitar for several years…

“I have been playing guitar for several years now and tried a variety of methods and teachers, however I felt my progress had slowed and I wasn’t getting anywhere. I contacted Blue Wave Guitar and came for a trial lesson. I got on well and decided to book up a full month.

After a year of studying guitar with Richard I feel I have progressed much better than before. Richard is extremely knowledgeable about the guitar and music theory. He has helped me correct bad habits and mistakes and shown me how to make best use of my time when practising. I would recommend Blue Wave Guitar to anyone looking for a guitar teacher.”

I took up the guitar later in life…

“I took up the guitar a little later in life than most having been retired for several years. I was looking for a new hobby to do and had always fancied the guitar. Richard has been very patient with me and helped me to learn within my limits. I suffer from arthritis and it is not always possible to move my fingers well. Richard is always helpful and often has a different way to play the music which makes it easier for me.”

I started when I was at primary school…

“I’ve been having lessons with Richard for eight years now. I started when I was at primary school and I’m at college now. Next year I’m hoping to go on to study music at university. Richard has been amazing helping me with everything I needed to know about the guitar and music. He’s also helped me with recording my band and has been a massive encouragement. I would always recommend guitar lessons with Richard.

I look forward to my lesson…

“I look forward to my lesson with Richard each week. It’s just for half an hour, but I really appreciate the ‘me’ time I get. Working full time and with two teenagers and a husband at home to manage, I don’t get much time to myself or to practice. Richard has been very sympathetic and patient with me as I’ve come each week having made only slow progress from the previous week. He always has a smile on his face and is pleased to see me.”
