I have been having Saxaphone lessons with Oliver and have found his approach extremely refreshing. He is very patient & helpful which for a beginner is a massive asset. Oliver is very knowledgable and his teaching technique makes things easy for myself to develop and progress lesson by lesson. I would highly recommend Oliver as a teacher & is also an all round great guy!

My daughter (age 12) has been having flute lessons for around 3 months now. Oliver is patient, friendly, explains things thoroughly and keeps my daughter engaged in the lessons. He is keen to make the lessons a success and works hard instead of a dull lesson. My son (age 10) after watching my daughter, started guitar lessons with Oliver and has been fantastic . Oliver has quickly established rapport with my son, who enjoys his sessions, and is progressing very well. Oliver is flexible in lessons, adapting to and changing the lesson as needed. He has a very relaxed manner, which puts my children at ease, and we are really pleased to have found him.

Weve decided to take on learning a musical instrument as a challenge in retirement. Our grown up family are aghast at 2 over 60s taking up the ukulele. We missed out learning instruments earlier so at our age its something that might be pretty daunting. Oliver is nicely encouraging at all our little triumphs and able to analyse and identify why things go wrong when they do. Hes gently humorous with all the gifts that you hope for in a teacher. Thats a natural God given talent. Were so lucky to have found him and will be very careful not to tell anyone how good he is. He might fill his diary with more talented pupils and that would be dreadful. Why should anyone so good spend his time on pupils never going to get out of the slow lane ? The most amazing thing is that he appears to consider it a pleasure too. Wow. If I could put audio feedback Id give you a rendition of Ode to Joy to illustrate how its going.

To those who are thinking of engaging Oliver as a music teacher. I have a 10 year old daughter who has been learning the violin for 12 months. Oliver has been teaching Gina for the last 8 months In my daughters own word. He is politeHe makes lesson fun (as we have fun time on the instrument towards the tail end of the lesson)He encourages me and also motivates. As a parent, nothing pleases me more than seeing my daughter looking forward to her lessons. She does NOT feel that it is chore on a Saturday. He monitors her progress and make good judgement of when she should move on the next stage.
