Tony has been teaching electric guitar to our son for around 18 months. We have been amazed by how quickly he has progressed. Tony has a great approach and easily keeps his students engaged, even with the music theory side of things. We chose to follow Tony’s own curriculum initially, which was great fun, and we have since moved on to the official rock school grading system which Tony is very well versed in and was able to guide our son through his first grading with ease. Tony has happily provided music sheets for any songs requested by our son, even with some of them being quite niche! He also encourages his students to perform by putting on a student showcase, which I think is great for building confidence. We have also been impressed with how organised Tony is, he is very professional and is always well prepared for each lesson. One final thing to mention is the guitar service Tony offers which is great value and he does an excellent job restringing and polishing up your guitar. Highly recommended!

I have been taking lessons with Tony for 3 months. During this time I have made good progress. The structured lesson plans really suit me and his style of teaching is both informative and fun. The ‘homework’ supports my lessons, gives me direction and supports my progress. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tony’s Tuition to other students.

It’s been a really great experience learning to play the guitar with Tony. I was really nervous at the beginning, but Tony’s love of guitars and teaching soon made that pass, and every lesson has been a real pleasure. The pace is just right – steady enough not to feel pressure, but fast enough to make you feel like you’re always making progress!

Thanks Tony!

My daughter is really enjoying her guitar lessons. The lesson structure is great, and everything is explained well. Tony is very patient, and the lessons are set at a good pace. There is no pressure to sit exams and the student can pick some of their own music choices to play.

I would recommend Tony to anyone at any age to learn to play.

Josh started his guitar lessons with Tony’s Tuition around a year ago. Tony is a fun and friendly guy with lots of patience.

Josh thoroughly enjoys and looks forward to his guitar lesson every week and feels he has learnt a lot. Tony runs a showcase event each year which Josh has now entered for the second time, the showcase is fun and gives the students an opportunity to perform a song of their choice and shows what they have learnt so far.

We look forward to progressing even more and are soon going to move on to grades.

It has been a great experience learning to play guitar with Tony. He explains things so well and is very patient. As a recently retired person it has been heartening to find someone who has empathy across a wide range of ages and with someone like myself who does not have a natural musical talent.

Tony teaches my 7 year old son and I am super impressed with the progress he has made so far! Tony is patient, lets my son choose music that is of interest to him, and Tony’s teaching structure recognizes student progress with certificates that positively encourage my son to keep practicing. Highly recommended!

Amazing teacher. I started with zero experience and he made me feel comfortable and made it fun to learn the guitar.

Tony is a brilliant teacher. Patient, explains things very well in simple, easy to understand ways. He goes to a lot of trouble to make your lessons structured and enjoyable and gets you on your way from the start.

I would highly recommend Tony’s Tuition to anyone. If it is your dream to play an instrument, look no further.
