"I am a classically trained musician and former music teacher, I can say with confidence and experience that John Welch is one of the best teachers I have worked with in many years. If you are looking for guitar lessons as a beginner or advanced guitarist you can't go wrong."
"I have learned more from John in a month than I have in a year trying to teach myself from books and YouTube."
"I have 'strummed' a guitar for years. From my very first lesson with John Welch I started to 'play' the guitar. I have learned many new techniques and an understanding of the instrument with John's focused and structured methods but, at the same time , every lesson is relaxed and fun. Highly recommended. Hook up with John and you will find that you can't wait to get home to practice and to play the songs you have always wanted to!"
