A great learning experience
Had a great time learning Harmonica with John. Very informal/fun tuition (mainly me laughing at my attempts to emulate John). John kept the music theory information to a minimal level which was good for me but was very knowledgeable and was able to explain things I had read on Google etc regarding music theory e.g. playing Harmonica in different positions, Rule of 5ths etc.
Thoroughly recommend John to anyone wishing to learn the Harmonica or any of the other instruments he teaches.

Great harmonica teacher
John taught me how to play the harmonica from scratch. His teaching style is patient and unhurried and he keeps the lessons varied and interesting. I have thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with John which were time well spent and good value for money. I recommend him.

My Guitar lessons with John
Ive been with John for getting on for 2 years now and im extremely pleased with the tuition he gives.Hes very patient and moves along at my pace,im a very slow learner,but when i look back at when i first started learning to what learnt and what i can do now on the guitar,i couldn't be more pleased.
I wanted to learn the guitar as a hobby,John has understood that,and that is how i've progressed.
I couldn't praise John more and would definitely recommend John.
Ive started from knowing nothing and more than pleased with where i am now.

SKYPE LESSONS A SPECIALITY
Beginners to Advanced
In addition to conducting lessons in the county of of Kent or having the lessons in my home I can also do SKYPE LESSONS as a specialty for any where in the UK or abroad
These days there are many Free on line lessons & YouTube Guitar Tutorials about, they weren't available years ago and I have encouraged my Pupils to make use of them.
So why choose a Tutor like me to help you in your music learning? Am I not doing my self out of Business? Perhaps, but I am a dedicated Guitarist and if I can provide good quality personal expert Tuition which considers & works with your personal ability and to to get you the pupil to achieve in a short period of time attractive sounds that will be a delight for others to hear I feel that you will find that it is good value for money well spent.
Group Tuition is a good method of learning as you have the opportunity to interact with others but, unlike being in a class with other students that has to go along with something that is suitable for all the students, when hiring me or any other guitar/music instrument teacher your personal preferences & interests are focused on.
Learning something that you actually like will help in keeping the love for your instrument alive and keep you motivated to perform better. To back up the effectiveness of the lessons that I give I have had years 20 years teaching experience and 30 years playing experience which combines a total of 50 years guitar playing experience.
Many satisfied pupils have benefited by learning from me. My reviews are on my Yell.com advert Ridgestone Guitar and Harmonica Tuition Yell.com, which have been vetted for authenticity.
May I encourage you to book your lesson with me today and start receiving benefits of the tuition that I provide, avoid mistakes and make sure you are on the right path every time you pick up your instrument
