I began lessons with Chris on my retirement as an absolute beginner, with little confidence, with the goal of being able to play for pleasure. His lessons were well structured and he provided the support to help me learn in my own way. Chris is patient and enthusiastic and I progressed to being able to play some Grade 4 pieces and developed the confidence to play with 2 friends in a Trio. Chris was also prepared to support this by transposing music and also doing his own arrangements for us, which we very much enjoy playing. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris as a music teacher.
