"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

“We are delighted to say a few words about Sam who has been teaching our 12 year old daughter for nearly 2 years now. Sam has been a weekly visitor to our house arriving punctually and cheerfully for an early evening lesson. We always enjoy hearing the conversation between Sam and our daughter and the music that issues forth is an absolute delight. Sam has a real knack with children; our daughter thoroughly enjoys her lessons, with real progress in evidence but achieved with humour and fun. We would highly recommend Sam to other parents.” Karin & Nigel

"Sam is an excellent teacher with a real passion for guitar. His interesting historical insights into pieces and the guitar in general are real bonuses to already superb lessons! Would highly recommend." Thom

"Sam has been teaching classical guitar to my fifteen year old son on a weekly basis for the past few months. During that time, I have found Sam to be courteous, reliable and professional at all times, as well as being an inspirational guitar teacher. I would highly recommend him." Martine

"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."
