Student Reviews

  • Dave has been a fantastic music teacher for our two children (drums and guitar). He is endlessly patient, and makes the lessons fun which is so important for keeping kids engaged. By the end of the first lesson they were already playing The White Stripes! Would highly recommend. Thank you Dave!

  • David Strand has been our 15 yr old son, Tomos’s guitar teacher, for over 2 years. Dave’s style has suited our son perfectly. Each week Dave has taught Tomos techniques of increasing difficulty through the practising and learning of songs that Tomos likes. His style is encouraging and never pushy. As a consequence of this Tomos is so fired up about the electric guitar, is doing BTEC music which he loves AND we have never had to ask him to practice. We would whole heartedly recommend Dave to anyone looking to play the guitar (acoustic or electric).
  • Dave is a fantastic guitar teacher! He has been teaching my children for 2 years now, and has recently started to teach me. He explains things very well and in an easy-to-understand way. Highly recommend.

  • David has been teaching my son Zac for the past 6 months. Zac really enjoys the lessons as David gets him playing along to songs he knows and makes the learning really fun. Dave is friendly and relaxed; an excellent teacher. Highly recommended!

  • Dave has been my inspiring, dedicated and patient guitar teacher for several years. I am continually surprised and delighted by his clear, easy-to-understand explanations and his willingness to help me realise my guitar goals. I always look forward to my guitar lessons with him.

  • Dave is absolutely fantastic, we couldn’t be happier having him as a music instructor (drums and guitar) for our two children. Apart from being a knowledgeable and systematic teacher, he is a great guy. His friendly, laid-back demeanour puts our children at ease and it’s always a pleasure having him in our home. We recommend him to everyone.
