    inspires me to keep going

    Ian has been an amazing teacher, his knowledge doesn't stop at just playing the guitar, it surrounds music, and truly inspires me to keep going, keep practicing and to keep enjoying the moments along the way.

    Teaches with lots of Enthusiasm

    Ian is absolutely fabulous! I cannot express how well my playing has improved in the last year. Being an adult learner, his style of teaching is extraordinary and I have gained so much confidence. Ian is always patient and kind and teaches with lots of enthusiasm, passion and is dedicated to his students success.

    Corrected a lot of habits that needed changing

    I have been going to Ian's classes for over two years 1 for ukelele and over 1 for guitar. Ian has corrected a lot of habits that need changing like sticardo and not playing the notes too loud. He is also very precise. I think you should go to his classes because it is worth it! I also like that he has put in a lot of effort and Ian allows you to choose what song you want to play and he would teach you it.

    Makes it all understandable


    It is such a pleasure working with Ian, who seems to make learning the Guitar a more simpler process. His teaching consists of a very relaxing methodical approach and in turn makes you see the sense in both movements and style. I have progressed in leaps and bounds since starting with Ian and really look forward to my lessons. Thanks so much for making me realise that anyone can play the guitar when you have been shown in a manner that makes it all understandable.

    Now I am writing my own songs

    When I first started with Ian I could hardly play and only knew two or three chords. Within a year Ian had taught me the fundamentals of guitar, but he had also made it fun. He is a chill fun dude to be with yet you learn so much so fast and it's great. I really enjoy each lesson. Now I am writing my own songs thanks to Ian. He has been a huge inspiration and an amazing teacher.

    learning of favorite songs

    "The time spent learning with Ian was invaluable to building my knowledge of the guitar. The how's and why's were always answered with very "outside the box answers" that made sense on many different levels. The learning of favorite songs always kept me interested in guitar, while the practical and key scales were also incorporated into my learning to ensure I learned the proper knowledge of the working fretboard. Ian is a fantastic player and can work with any style of music. A very friendly guy and easy to have a good chat with. I would highly recommend him to anyone, at any age, wanting to learn any style. Choice Bro 🙂 " Bryce - student of 3 years-

    go at your own pace

    I have been learning with Guitar studio for around 5 months and learnt a lot in that time. I have learnt new playing styles. And am learning new songs by new artists. I Really like that Ian records the lessons. It allows me to go back and see if there was anything I've missed. This allows me to make the most out of my practice time. He's also really patient and let's you go at your own pace. I am Looking forward to learning new songs and new techniques.
