* Client Testimonials *
Nick helped me to prepare for a role where I had to sing and play guitar at the same time. I had never picked up a guitar before.
Nick really helped me to think about different playing techniques and styles on both electric and acoustic guitar. It’s been super useful both for my own playing but also for arranging and thinking about the guitar in an ensemble.
Nick has been my teacher for 2 years now and in that time I’ve made incredible progress. Under his guidance I managed to achieve a distinction in my Grade 8 Rockschool exam in only one term. Throughout my time playing Zack Mooneyham in the West End production of School of Rock Nick helped me to perfect my technique and improvisation skills, making sure that I performed to the best of my ability and this greatly increased my confidence on stage....
