What our students have to say

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.

Dylan Ambasna-Jones

The ‘one on one’ tuition really helped me improve my speed, skill and general knowledge of music. As well as this, there are various workshops to take part in where you can use what you have learned in lessons with other students, forming a band. Without Bath Guitar School I would’ve given up on music years ago. But thanks to Richard I have my Grade 5 guitar grade and more confidence, skill and enjoyment.
