        "having taken lesson from Jay, I can already see a massive improvement in my playing.  The actual lessons are always relaxed and very enjoyable, as Jay has a very warm and friendly approach to teaching.  However, the information he passes on is invaluable to any aspiring guitarist.  I personally find that it is the little things like how to finger a scale properly or nail a musical phrase being the most helpful; as you probably wouldn't learn these things without an experienced professional to guide you.  Highly recommended"  Paul  
        " I have been taking regular guitar lessons from Jay,  we usually cover a mix of music theory, discussions about technique, jazz standards and chord theory, and there will always be a healthy amount of playing/jamming.  In the lesson I find time spent with Jay to less like a formal lesson and more like hanging out with a seasoned expert (which he most certainly is), who I want to learn as much as possible from.  I would highly recommend any guitarist of any level taking lessons  as there is always something you don't know about the instrument"  Ben   
         " After searching the internet fro a quality guitar instructor, I stumbled across Jays' website.  The information available appealed to me and being totally honest I haven't looked back since Jay makes the lessons very enjoyable and his patient manner along with his knowledge, professionalism and ability to get you playing recognizable tunes in such a short time is fantastic.

Jay manages to get the balance just right when setting tasks for the next lesson and not once have I felt under pressure with the level of difficultly or amount of homework he set, and if I don't succeed at certain task Jay will give me encouragement and ensure I am confortable before moving on.   I always look forward to my next lesson and I would highly recommend Jay to friends and family and any other budding guitarist who I may stumble across"  Thank you Gary.
        "Jay has been teaching me to play guitar for a bout a year now.  As a complete beginner and mature student I had may worries about learning a new instrument.  After my first lot of lessons I realized that the guitar was for made for me and this was largely down to Jay.  His passion for music and everything guitar is unquestionable and this instantly rubbed off on me.  I've gone from strength to strength with Jay, starting with simple chord patters and moving on to complex tablature.  Jay's understanding of individuals situation means I can easily balance work life with lessons.  Without Jay I would probably have put down the guitar a long time ago" .....

        " Excellent tuition, I have been playing guitar for 5 years now and having been through numerous teachers Jay is without doubt the most dedicated, influential and professional.  Since starting lessons with less than a year ago, I have acquired a varied repertoire, overcome several  technique issues and successfully auditioned to study music at the RSAMD.  As an inspiring guitarist I make a demanding student, but jay's ability to bring out your strengths as a musician makes his teaching style highly effective"
