- Ewan SI am an adult guitar beginner and have been working with Robin since September 2019. I have found Robin to be very patient and a great teacher of not just how to play the guitar but he has introduced me to the fascinating wider world of music. Robin answers my endless questions and always makes my lesson time with him very interesting. I always feel that Robin strikes the right balance between the lesson time being constructive/challenging/supportive/positive experience and fun. Thanks to Robin I will now have a lifelong interest in classical guitar.
- Paul IBeen getting lessons with Robin for a while now, he has an innovative teaching style which allows not only playing skill to increase lesson upon lesson, but also promotes a deeper understanding of how and why music works the way it does. I learn something new every single time
- Bit CMy 6 year old has been going to Robin for drumming lessons for some time now and it has been great seeing him develop his eagerness to bang on drums into learning beats. He has come on so well under Robin’s tuition! Now that he is learning rhythms, Robin sets the level just high enough to make him work but not so hard that he gets bored and loses interest. Highly recommended! 5 Stars!
