I have been receiving tuition from Jimi since 2006 and over the last 10 years I have gone from being a very sketchy bedroom player to achieving a Merit in Grade 7 electric guitar and a member of a gigging band. As a late starter, in my mid-twenties I found Jimi to be very sympathetic to the challenges facing an adult learner.

Russ – Student of Newcastle Guitar Lessons (Savage Guitar Studio)

It had always been a dream of mine to be able to play guitar and play in a band but I never really had the confidence or ability to do it. One day I took a chance and booked a lesson and never looked back.

Since then guitar playing has become an integral part of my life and with a high pressure job I found playing to be a great stress reliever for me. Nothing helps me switch off from reality more than sticking on a backing track and improvising or rehearsal with my band mates.

Jimi is extremely knowledgeable about music and guitar playing and has a great focus of teaching which is to help you find the musician in you and bring it out via the guitar.

I can’t emphasise how much more efficient and effective it is to meaningfully learn from someone like Jimi, who has mastered their instrument, in a one to one situation over rote learning licks from a magazine or you tube. Jimi gives constructive and effective feedback and never makes me feel useless (even if I feel like I am sometimes!)

If you really want to learn how use your own musicality to play the guitar then see Jimi.

Don’t put it off – just contact Jimi, stick with it and you will have great value access to a very talented man who can help you realise your potential.

Josh Why – Student of Savage Guitar Studio; Newcastle Guitar Lessons

I started playing the guitar approximately 2 years ago with the ambition of teaching myself to play. After two or three months of this I quickly realised I was not progressing and I wasn’t achieving what I wanted to achieve.

At that point I found Jimi. I have had fortnightly lessons since that point and I have improved much more than I had ever imagined. The lessons are always very friendly and informal and Jimi is constantly pushing me on to improve myself on the guitar.

Jimi has an amazing knowledge of both the guitar and music as a whole and is always on hand to answer whatever question I might have no matter of how stupid or weird it may seem.
