Richard de Kock (Maidenhead, Berkshire, England)

I was a guitarist for many years and used to give guitar lessons myself full time. I had sadly put the guitar down for 15 years due to some unfortunate personal reasons. This year I picked it up again and I wanted to quickly get back to playing at the same level as I was and even better.

I could not have made a better decision choosing Alistair for this task. Within a month and a half through Alistair’s guidance and tutelage I was not only able to get back to the level of competence I was when I put the guitar down, but his fine tuning of my technique gave me more control over the guitar than I ever had. I finally have a solid concrete foundation to begin building on and I am so excited to see what guitarist I can become in a year with Alistair’s guidance.

Alistair is patient, personal and has a great sense of humour. For the experienced guitarist, Alistair’s lessons are like trying to drink water from a fire hydrant. He has a wealth of insight and information. I can honestly say, I have not looked at, or experienced my instrument the way I do now after this short period of time with Alistair.

Alistair’s unique value proposition is that he can not only teach you to be a lightning fast guitar player, but he is also able to teach you how to be a melodic meaningful player which is something that is very rare in most teachers today. He helps you embrace your own flavour of playing to really refine who you are as a guitar player.

He is absolutely highly recommended!
