Rory has fantastic knowledge and is brilliant at conveying this in a fun manner. He has helped me apply theory to songs, and has relayed this in a clear, concise and simple manner that I would have found daunting previously.

It's inspiring how dedicated Rory is to the development of his students. He has experience teaching all ages across a variety of instruments, teaching 100's of children of all abilities. He’s reliable and goes the extra mile to support his students winning Rocksteady’s moment of the year 2019, working with a band to perform at the children and young people now awards. Rory is a professional that will be able to advice and support your learning with a great balance of fun and progression.

I've been learning Bass with Rory for about 6 months and with his help and guidance have learnt so much is a short time. Rory's in depth knowledge of both music theory and playing techniques along with great patience and an ability to help you understand both areas of study always make the lessons interesting, enjoyable and tailored to your individual needs.

My daughter started Electric Bass Guitar lessons with Rory in March 2020. We managed one in-person lesson before lockdown hit and since then my daughter has been having lessons online. I can't believe the progress she has made this way! They decide between them what to learn, there's been a mix of Pop, Rock and Funk which has kept my daughter motivated and really enjoys what she plays. We recently moved to California and continued with online lessons!
