"I have been learning the guitar with Sam for six months and found him to be an excellent teacher. He has a warm, friendly personality but at the same time is very professional. Sam’s technique is really impressive and he is very good at demonstrating and giving technical advice. He has introduced me to many interesting pieces and has been very flexible in allowing me to choose a wide range of repertoire. I'd thoroughly recommend Sam. I am enjoying learning with him very much." - Julie

"I have been learning classical guitar with Sam for the last few months. I am extremely happy to have found Sam as my teacher, and highly recommend him to others wishing to learn or develop. He communicates very clearly, he demonstrates and explains well all aspects of playing and theory. He has made learning a very pleasant experience, and I feel such good personal progress under Sam's tuition. It is always nice to have him in my home. A very polite, respectful and mature young man." - Richard
