Richard is a fantastic teacher. He shows a huge amount of expertise, patience and good humour whilst he is keen to get results through building up his student’s confidence. Our 9 year old daughter Wren started 2 years ago as a complete beginner (with non-musical parents). She absolutely loves going to lessons with Richard each week. As with a lot of beginners, she finds practicing in between times a lot more challenging. However, Richard keeps finding ways to engage and encourage her to build good habits and to persevere. The performance opportunities Richard schedules throughout the year including; Studio ‘band rehearsals’ with fellow students, two concerts at Moles and busking for charity at the Christmas Market, provide a much broader, impactful experience for the students. We are very grateful to have found Richard and would recommend this school wholeheartedly!
