Please take some time to review some of my recent client feedback
Jo is a great teacher. She is very patient and professional. My child really enjoys her guitar lessons with Jo and I can see the progress. I would definitely recommend Jo to anyone who is interested in learning to play the guitar.
Really enjoying my lessons with Jo. I nearly gave up after my first lesson as I had never played before and found it really hard but so glad I didn’t as I have learnt so much and Jo is so patient and encouraging.
Currently having lessons with Jo and just want to put it out there that this lady is the best guitar teacher you will find in Liverpool. I am a mature “lapsed” strummer who has being going to Jo for the last 3 months and the difference her teaching has made to both my technique and musical theory knowledge is unbelievable. Jo has a patient, tailored approach to lessons that have really improved not only my ability but also my confidence around other guitar players who I used to feel inferior to. I have been taught all the things I should have learned long ago when I first picked up a guitar. Fretboard knowledge and scales are now second nature to me and these were an alien concept before lessons with Jo, and almost without realising it my musical theory knowledge is now at a level I could only dream of three months ago. Jo has such patience and her whole approach to lessons with a more mature student like me is fantastic. Add in the fact she is an amazing guitarist and a hell of a nice person and you really do hit the jackpot if you have lessons with her. Five stars doesn’t even come close but it is the most I am allowed to give. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with Jo if you are reading this and undecided-I guarantee you won’t regret your choice.
Jo is a great help to me, and I found that having somebody I could ask questions that you cannot research yourself, or fill in gaps that brings things together is invaluable! She always tries to fit me in around my busy work schedule, is patient with me, & I can always trust her advice! Thanks Jo!
Jo was recommended to us by a family and we couldn’t have asked for a better music mentor for our son. In every lesson through her encouragement and professionalism she enabled our son to become confident learning guitar and opened his mind to music he would probably never have listened to. Jo was always super accommodating – even when there were days of “I don’t feel like it” Jo would somehow win him round and by the end of the session he would be so happy he had done it. Jo has been amazing at music coaching through the pandemic and even in our virtual sessions she still managed to engage with our son and make the sessions fun. Couldn’t recommend Jo highly enough she is amazing 🤩
Not only is Jo a fantastic guitar teacher – she is kind, patient and a great role model for my two daughters. They enjoy their lessons every week and have both improved greatly since they started. Would highly recommend 🙂
Jo is a brilliant teacher, always reliable, punctual and a great role model for the kids – would highly recommend!!
Jo is an excellent teacher, my Son Harry has come on leaps and bounds with Jo, would highly recommend her.
Since taking lessons off Jo my progress has been brilliant and I’m so happy with how well I can play a Guitar and understand music now, I was struggling for years on my own and close to giving up, trying to learn and grasp how the whole concept of music works and what goes on behind a song and the basis of it all has been so much better with Jo, Jo has a outstanding knowledge of music and I highly recommend.
Having no experience in guitar playing felt quite daunting when I wanted to start learning. However, Jo has been the most patient, insightful and skilled tutor I have ever been taught by! Jo allowed me to move at my own pace whilst still being incredibly encouraging. With weekly lessons that were tailored to what I wanted to achieve from the guitar, Jo equipped me with a plethora of tools that have allowed me to flourish as a guitarist. Her knowledge of the instrument and its use in different styles is limitless and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is a beginner, intermediate or an advanced player because Jo always has something valuable to offer.
Jo is an exceptional tutor, passionate , enthusiastic and committed to passing her knowledge on to others , she makes the sessions fun and can teach all ages and abilities, she is patient with a lovely personality. I will miss my sessions with her.
Jo has be helping our son for around a year and his progress is amazing gone from strength to strength and with Jo helping him has gain a place at LIPA great teacher wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her *****
Jo is amazing at teaching my daughter improved so much with her lessons highly recommend.
Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value. “Good players don’t necessarily make good teachers” a phrase I’ve heard over the years. Jo is an exception. She’s a great performer and an equally great teacher. I needed a specific style of coaching over a limited period and had specific objectives. Jo helped me achieve and surpass all my targets.. in addition, making improvements to my playing style along the way. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jo.. she’s a great communicator and a really easy person to get on with, which makes the learning process so much more enjoyable 😎🎸👍🤘.
My 8 year old has done guitar lessons with Jo for a while now. Jo is great, always so accommodating with lessons. Lovely friendly reliable and brilliant at what she does. My little boy loves Jo. Would highly recommend 🙂
I took lessons with Jo for a few months, until my personal circumstances changed and I’ve put it on hold for a while. I found the online format very accessible and convenient, and Jo was very accommodating with scheduling lessons in at convenient times for me. Jo’s teaching was fun, and personal; she suggested songs to suit my interests, and I thought she pitched it really well – not too pushy, but demanding enough to keep you on your toes! She always sent follow up materials, including recordings of her playing the songs slowly and at normal speed, which I found extremely useful for working on strumming rhythms. I’d thoroughly recommend Jo, and look forward to starting again later in the year.
Jo is a great teacher – I would totally recommend her! Very friendly, super patient, v reliable and just all-round really good. My teenage daughter has been having electric guitar lessons with Jo for a couple of years and has just passed her Grade 5 with Merit – and she’s gained loads of confidence thanks to Jo’s support and great teaching.
Jo taught my son Guitar. Jo is a fabulous teacher. My son achieved distinction Grade 1 exam. I always recommend Jo as she is a brilliant teacher, very responsible, always on time for lesson. Thank you Jo for your help and support.
Have had a year worth of lessons with Jo once every week. I have to say, she has been the greatest music teacher ever, helping me with improving my music theory drastically to playing some of my favourite songs on guitar. I started out knowing absolutely nothing, but she gave me the opportunity and courage to start performing on stage, with implemented techniques and skills to the highest standard. Her listening skills are immaculate. She pretty much knows the key to every songs thrown at her, and has the ability to improvise every single time. I love her to bits and will hope to start a lesson with her again nearer future. If you are looking for a music teacher, do not hesitate to contact her as you will not be disappointed.
Jo has tutored our Daughter on a regular basis, she is patient and understanding. She improved our daughters confidence no end , we would not hesitate to recommend her as a tutor.
My Grandson aged 8 has been taking lessons for quite a while with Jo . He is extremely shy with new people & Jo has been patient & caring & has a way that has brought him out of himself & he has progressed not only with his guitar but also in confidence . Thank you Jo.
My daughter has had lessons with Jo for a few years. Jo is remarkably patient and enthusiastic. I watched my daughter make great progress, despite a lack of commitment on her part to practice. Jo is flexible in her approach and seems to bring out the best In her pupils. My daughter enjoyed the lessons and more importantly built up her confidence in playing guitar. For us it wasn’t about grades but enjoyment and learning and this was achieved in both parts. Would highly recommend Jo, she is reliable, enthusiastic, a great teacher and a lovely warm person.
My original post is below, this edit is written September 2021 after resuming lessons after lockdown, and that return has highlighted for me just how far Jo has brought my playing along… she has infinite patience and easily spots errors and puts them right, making every session a positive step forward. I always come away from a lesson with renewed enthusiasm and increased knowledge. Gosh this lady is good not only in her own right as an accomplished musician but also as a fine teacher, giving praise and encouragement where deserved, and explaining where adjustments are needed.
I’ve been a student of Jo’s for a few years now, she’s an excellent teacher who can teach a variety of songs regardless of difficulty level. Would highly recommend.
Our 12 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Jo for about 15mths mostly online due to Covid, she has improved so much + loves her weekly lessons, Jo is brilliant with her, very patient + is really encouraging, we’re so glad we chose Jo to teach our daughter!!
Took their time to help educate me in both theory and practical. Would highly recommend to anyone who is wanting to learn!
Jo is a brilliant guitar teacher who has exactly the right temperament to help children develop musically – she is calm, professional and talented but never pushy, always encouraging and points out areas to improve without being overbearing. She also goes above and beyond what is expected – often sending messages outside her own time to make sure the lessons are going well and our boys are getting on ok. The boys – who started when they were 7 – love their lessons with her and are doing really well with their music and guitar playing. She also helped our eldest develop his skills for the music aptitude tests for secondary schools, which he did really well in. We would highly recommend Jo.
