Testimonials update..

I have just added to my list of student testimonials.  I’ve been so lucky with my students and it’s sad to see them go but I’m also made up to see people go off and do what’s important in their lives, from relocating to Scotland and moving on to University…  Best of luck!

I have more testimonials here.  Have a read to see what different people, past and present have got from their lessons….there’s a whole range of ages/abilities and goals!

 

“Three years ago I set myself the challenge of learning an instrument as an adult without being able to read a note of music. Jo  Bywater ‘s name was a personal recommendation for a guitar teacher so I took the plunge. 

I struck lucky . Jo has the patience of a saint but was able to motivate me to keep going when it got tough! And tough it was. However she always picked songs which I liked and of a difficulty that she thought I could master. So three years down the line . I am still a beginner, but I have played and sung in public and no-one laughed ( my personal goal) . I am relocating so have stopped lessons but would highly recommend Jo if you are beginning or honing up your skills because she is a great teacher”

“I have been going to Jo for over a year now, I have found her an excellent tutor and as a first time learner I would recommend her highly, she has brought me on loads!”  Peter.  2016

Jo is an inspirational teacher. She is patient, encouraging and really good at guitar. She understood that I would learn best if  I was playing what I liked and so she helped me learn to play rock and alternative styles. I would definitely recommend her to others”  Jasmin (aged 14).  2016

Testimonials Update!

Its great to get feedback on lessons and teaching methods and to see what works.  My guitar students are so varied and in that require different methods of communication and goals/plans.  I do my best to observe and cater for the individual in the hope I can help them get to where they want to be.  If they don’t know where they want to be, I try my best to help them find it.

Here are some updated testimonials from some of my current students.

“As an adult guitar learner, Jo has been ever so patient with me and my confidence in playing has improved immeasurably. Jo is a talented and knowledgeable teacher and I would absolutely recommend her” Normandie

“Jo is outstanding, I was having trouble sumarising Jo’s guitar tuition, but that just about covers it. I’ve taken up guitar for a couple of reasons, but mostly personal amusement. Given that I’ve started with almost zero musical knowledge, Jo has shown extreme patience, insight and skill in diagnosing the numerous inventive ways I find to get things wrong. She works well, finding where I’m going wrong, correcting and providing ways for me to improve. Jo is good at providing building blocks you need and breaking things down into manageable chunks to learn.Simply put, in my opinion, it’s definitely worth seeking Jo out and seeing how she can help your guitar playing progress” Chris

“Jo has been a fantastic and inspirational teacher for me. As a “mature” learner who has been trying to play guitar for several decades, I’ve had several teachers but Jo has really helped me to develop in ways that none of the others could. She responds fully to my preferences regarding songs and styles and also comes up with excellent ideas. The mix of technique and performance practice is perfect for me. And she’s such an easy person to like”Jack

“Jo has been teaching my two daughters for around 3 years now and in that time they have made great progress in using various techniques, grade work and playing for pleasure. Importantly they really enjoy their lessons and their practice!” Annette

“Jo Bywater is the best guitar teacher I have ever had. The lessons are very much focused on my own interests and the songs and skills I wish to learn which makes practising much more fun than just having tasks set for me. She has a fantastic eye for detail and uses this ability to break down complex riffs and songs into smaller, more easily understood techniques. Jo is patient, she communicates really well and is very understanding and flexible with lesson times and bookings. I would recommend any guitarist, beginner or expert to take lessons with Jo as her great skill and broad knowledge mean everyone stand to learn something new”  Dan
