As an adult beginner, I couldn't have a better teacher than James and his brilliant London Guitar Academy Team. His encouragement maintains my interest and motivates me to keep pushing myself. He sets achievable goals keeping me both engaged and challenged on a weekly basis.James has great knowledge of every aspect of the guitar. His patient and systematic approach to teaching benefits both young and older students, giving them the confidence to display their new-found skills in public. He has a deep passion for music which is infectious and shows in everything he does. I can wholeheartedly recommended James to teach the guitar from absolute beginners to advanced level. A Great teacher & fabulous Guitar Academy!
James is a fantastic guitar teacher here in London. His friendly guitar lessons helped me to learn guitar with speed and confidence through the songs that I love. I have been a student at the London Guitar Academy for two years now, and right from the start I was astonished by how effective the teaching is and how super friendly the staff are there. Everyone who works there are great people, and they have all been a great influence on me over the years. My experience there has been outstanding, and I would absolutely recommend it to a guitarist of any ability. The concerts that the London Guitar Academy puts on at the end of each year can not be beaten, with the huge amount of effort that the teachers put in to make it a great experience for everyone. It is always great to have the freedom of choosing what you want to learn, and the having the flexibility of lesson times that allows you to reschedule at any time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
James is the greatest. He's not only a phenomenal guitarist but also a phenomenal human being. He an expert on both theory and mainstream, and can play a wide variety of styles and genres. It's uncommon that someone so skilled can also teach so well. I can certainly say that taking lessons with James & London Guitar Academy has changed my life for the better. if you ever get the chance to take lessons from LGA, you're in for great educational experience.
We love London Guitar Academy! It's great seeing my 10-year old pick up and learn songs from Oasis, Nirvana &the Beatles, and the White stripes on his electric guitar! The concerts have been very fun to attend, to see all the kids have a moment in the spotlight! The instructors are interested in the kids and flexible so the kids can also participate in their other sports activities. All the LGA tutors are extremely knowledgeable and always pay attention to detail and he makes it easy for my child to understand. I’m looking forward to future success hand further great progress. Highly recommend.
Fantastic Guitar Academy! James has been teaching my husband guitar for the last 3 years. James 's enthusiasm and ability to relate to my son about all of his interests (not just guitar) ensured his motivation to learn never wavered. Over the years I've seen my husband develop his guitar skills and his confidence thanks to James's teaching and most important of all, he has made learning fun! He takes the time and trouble to find tabs for favourite songs and this keeps their interest going alongside the technique based lessons. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend James, he's a been an absolute pleasure to have visiting our home on a weekly basis.
