I have been a student of Bath Guitar School for almost two years. If I was going to try and describe my experience in a few words it would be ‘tailored’ and ‘well-rounded’ lessons. Richard is happy to go at the pace of the learner and adjust the lessons as needed to accommodate individual progress. Some weeks I pick things u ...

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 ...

For me Richard’s approach to teaching guitar, is proving ideal. I love songs, I love the guitar and now I enjoy performing. He has helped me put all three elements together so that after regular lessons and near daily practice, I’m gaining in confidence. On top of this, Richard’s Acoustic Club sessions provides a friendly setting ...

Richard has been such an inspiring teacher. Our son has been able to learn to play the electric guitar in a way that has stayed fresh and interesting. Richard’s teaching style is intuitive, calm and humorous and he is able to differentiate the information easily to suit our child’s needs. We were very impressed by how quickly our son was able to pl ...

Our daughter has always wanted to play the guitar, and luckily we found Richard!

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! ...

Richard has been teaching both my children guitar for a number of years. As well as being great fun, the wide range of extra-curricular events that he organises enable his students to regularly experience playing as a band and performing in pubic. He is extremely professional, reliable and well-organised. Parents are regularly informed of their chi ...

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 Bat ...

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! ...

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. ...
