Geoff is a great guy and an amazing guitar player. Lessons were always fun. He has an extensive knowledge in a lot of music genres which is really impressive and he was always happy to provide tabs for songs I wanted. I did learn a lot from Geoff, especially when it comes to Blues and Classic Rock as well as learn to play chords in the acoustic guitar. I definitely recommend Geoff as a guitar teacher. -Manolis (Guitarist)
Fantastic approach to teaching, highly recommend... a good friend as well for the added bonus... thanks Geoff!
Geoff is brilliant. He's not just a fantastic musician but also a really cool guy. I felt at ease from the first lesson. If you're after guitar lessons, Geoff is your man.
..an excellent way of breaking down the song and one of the first really good explanations of how to develop improvisational skills that I've seen. Most teachers are bad for saying ''just look at the chord and use the appropriate scales and arpeggios'', or ''dude, it's just doing it, just make stuff up''. You've broken it down very well.
Geoff is a fantastic teacher who managed to make even my extremely shy daughter comfortable from the first lesson. His simple teaching methods have taken her from almost no guitar playing experience to Grade 5 (Merit) in just a year, and taught her about styles of music she would never have considered before. We couldn't be more pleased.
It was a huge relief finding Geoff. He took up the challenge and succeeded in getting Rob through his grade 5 in only a few months. Geoff has a great knack when it comes to the more challenging parts, and is always friendly and considerate. Many thanks
Thank you for 3 years of empowering guitar tuition. You pushed me to a level I never thought I could reach, and I owe so much of my technique to your guidance.
Geoff has been teaching my son for a couple of years and really enjoys his lessons and the time goes very quickly. Geoff ispatient and really good at explaining things in a lovely relaxed manner. Highly recommend.
I've been a pupil of Geoff's for a while now. His relaxed and patient style of teaching, coupled with his ability to teach a wide variety of styles has helped me a great deal in becoming a far more proficient player.
I am a senior person who has been taking guitar lessons with Geoff. Although I am not an outright beginner, I am in need a lot of input.
Geoff has made the lesson fun and instructive. He has used many techniques to improve my playing and is also interested in my thoughts about where I would like to go. He uses very good materials for his tutoring, which both reinforce and stretch my playing.
He is friendly, very knowledgeable and also incredibly versatile as a musician.
I would very highly recommend him as a tutor for any level of player.
