What our students have to say

Rachel Lancashire

I can’t recommend Bath Guitar School highly enough. My daughter has been having guitar lessons for just over a year now and I have been amazed at her progress. Richard is an great teacher. He is amazingly patient and enthusiastic delivering the lessons in a fun and humorous was. He is genuinely interested in all of his students and is fantastic at getting the best out of them. If you are trying to find a guitar lessons in the Bath area look no further.

John Long

Richard is a great teacher! I'm an adult beginner, and absolutely loving the classic songs we're learning. Nice guy too - lessons are always good fun.

Sarjana Makepeace

I am an adult beginner and have been learning acoustic guitar from Richard for about 6 months. I didn’t know how and where to start learning but Richard guided me in the right direction. I liked the lessons because they are fun, gentle and have structure. The studio location is great and price is reasonable. His teaching is very clear and easy to follow.

Claire Williams

Richard at Bath Guitar School has been teaching my daughter for over a year now. She started lessons as part of her DofE award but loved it so much she wanted to continue. She’s learnt so much in that time and Richard always makes the lessons fun and engaging and cool. If you’re looking to learn the guitar - whatever age - then I can highly recommend Bath Guitar School.

Emma Hollingsworth

My son started guitar lessons with Richard when he needed to take on a new skill for his Duke of Edinburgh award. He has hugely enjoyed Richard’s lessons and has found him really easy company. He has been able to explore the music he likes too and not be bound by the rigid structures of a grading system. Thanks Richard!

Andrew Collins

Richard has been a fantastic guitar teacher. Within a short while he had me writing my own music which is never something I thought I would be able to do. There is no set structure and he will tailor his lessons around what the student wants to get out of it. Highly recommended, If you want to improve and not just learn from set material, go to Bath Guitar School!

Michael Wright

Richard's personable approach is a part of each lesson. Each lesson feels tailored to you. Lessons move as fast, or as slow, as I make progress. I am amazed by the progress I have made so far and wish I had found Richard and the Bath Guitar School sooner!

Jacqui Crowther

Richard is a very inspirational tutor and a true professional in his field and his students really get a great deal out of his lessons. I would recommend him 100% to anyone thinking of either taking up the guitar for the first time or more advanced students wishing to return to playing.

Jon Doble

The Bath Guitar School experience has been one of encouragement and (much needed) patience from Richard who is a skilled musician and innovative teacher. There are lots of places providing lessons but if you want to learn and grow in confidence and have some fun, then give Richard Perkins a call; you won’t regret it.

David Bond

It doesn’t hurt that Richard is an excellent musician in his own right, and his enthusiasm for playing is obvious. The great thing is that this passion transfers itself to the student’s own experience. My son has always enjoyed being part of the creative process that Richard engenders. He leaves the session keen to play more. I have no hesitation in recommending him without reservation and feel fortunate that I found him and his school.
