I immediately warmed to Ryans easy going style of tutoring and coaching, so much so that I have never looked back. In 6 months the lessons have taken me from someone who could play the minor pentatonic scales in most positions to someone who is soloing across the fretboard, mixing major and minor scales. This has been immediately transferable into my band who can see a marked difference in my playing.
The structured lessons and feedback are clear and concise, and have suited my needs to take my playing forward. Ryan is easy going, patient and seems to have a real intuition for the individual player’s needs. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to play at a couple of outside events during the summer and I’ve really enjoyed incorporating some of the new techniques I’ve learned.
This is the most I’ll ever get from a guitar course! I'm fairly new to lessons however I can’t believe how much I’ve learned in such a short time. I went from no fretboard or theory knowledge at all to a confident level of understanding extremely quickly. This is to do with the method and ways the courses are delivered - they keep you interested and you are always learning. I’ve tried many other classes in the past but never stuck with them.
