Testimonials

“I cannot rate Sam Whiting highly enough! He is enthusiastic, patient, encouraging, funny and always up for a challenge and new ideas. I was a complete beginner and I’m loving the lessons I have. As well as being a fab teacher, Sam is also a brilliant communicator, on the rare occasion that a lesson has to be postponed he offers alternative dates & times and we find a solution so I don’t miss out.” – Ele

 

“During the time I had lessons with Sam I enjoyed a number of epiphanies in my playing that I would not have had otherwise. Sam is a great teacher and is familiar with all musical genres, he also performs with a band regularly so can provide lots of help if you wish to get into performing. Having lessons with Sam is some of the best money I’ve ever spent and I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is trying to learn the guitar to have lessons” – Stefan
