What people have said about learning guitar through John Hill’s  studio in Ainsdale Southport.

“I am very grateful to John for his patience, expertise and doing a great job in getting me started playing the guitar.  I purchased an initial block of 4 lessons and had absolutely no knowledge or experience.  I very quickly found myself playing a wide range of chords and strumming patterns, learning all sorts of practical tips and starting to develop a theoretical knowledge.  The teaching I have received has been very effective, supportive and also challenging.  Now I feel empowered and motivated to progress further through a combination of personal progression and additional lessons with John.”

“John Hill is an excellent teacher.  I have learned various instruments over the years and therefore know a good teacher when I find one! He prepares well for each pupil according to their needs and is sympathetic-often saying ” What I liked about that was…”, when, in fact the general performance wasn’t good but some good can be extracted from it. It is encouraging to have a teacher who always seems positive and who has one’s best interests at heart.”

“I have known John Hill for the last year and under his tutelage have progressed steadily through a series of interesting and demanding pieces of music. Mr Hill is an excellent teacher, a first class musician and has the practical and theoretical skills to advance the abilities of his students. I have no hesitation in recommending him to you.”

“Our son makes excellent progress. We find John gives clear and patient tutorage and our son enjoys his guitar lessons. John is reliable, prompt and is happy to be flexible over lesson timings during the school holidays.”

“John has been teaching my son the guitar now for just over 12 months. I cannot believe how quickly he has responded to his tuition. He has an excellent manner of engaging children and focusing on what interests them whilst ensuring they make steady progress. He is a very easy going and capable teacher.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed learning classical guitar with John and would recommend him as a teacher. He has a depth of interest and passion for the instrument, and a wide appreciation of music more generally, which makes the learning process an especially rewarding one. Under his guidance and encouragement, I quickly developed an enthusiasm for playing and my proficiency(practice permitting) came on well. John is flexible and open in his approach, structuring the course of lessons according to the needs and aims of the particular student; in other words, his lessons never felt ‘pro-forma’, and I invariably came away feeling uplifted and inspired.”
