Private guitar tutor teaching acoustic, electric and bass guitar also abrsm music theory.
Friendly and down to earth, and most importantly, able to play and teach all styles of playing. Totes recommended!
Our son has lessons here he loves it, Russ is fantastic , professional, friendly and attentive.. would definitely recommend .
Russ is my fourth guitar tutor and I have to say the best, his years of experience and relaxed atmosphere all adds to an hour of enjoyment. I have electric guitar lessons with him and come away with another chapter of guitar knowledge each time, he covers everything from guitar set up, effects, licks, different styles, music theory, how to get the best sound out of your guitar and many other skills required to play music. For me the fact that I feel relaxed not intimidated during the lesson is a massive advantage, you can't play correctly if your nervous and tense, would highly recommend. More...
Great teacher , brilliant range of all styles of music also very patient when learning !!
Friendly and down to earth, and most importantly, able to play and teach all styles of playing. I was already able to play a little, and with Russ' tuition made really rapid progress - impressive results. Totes recommended!
When I wanted to learn playing guitar I turned to Russ by recommendation. The lessons were well structured and built around what I wanted from the lessons and we went from there. I was motivated to do the practice in between lessons and could see my progress. I would highly recommend Russ as a teacher, instructor or mentor. Very relaxed style and easy to relate to and understand More...
Russ is a top bloke. He has real patience and displays a genuine interest in helping me progress. I've been attending lessons for acoustic guitar with Russ for a couple of months now. I am progressing at a rate I didn't expect. There have been a number of times I've found Russ's experience and insight so, so useful. I'll be sticking this out for the long term in full knowledge and confident that I have found a great local tutor and a person I enjoy spending time with learning something so rewarding. More...
I have had several guitar lessons with Russ over the past few months and definitely intend to continue. The experience I receive with Touch Strings, I find, is one that has been tailored to my own requirements, based on my limited experience and capabilities. Russ has a warm and welcoming nature about him, combined with a wealth of knowledge and experience which he has not doubt gained over the years. Every lesson I've had has been given in his own professional yet relaxed manner which is a credit to him. Folks.... Russ is the "go to" guy in Stoke on Trent for guitar tuition. Best I've experienced. More...
Hi, anyone wanting to learn or improve their guitar need not look any further than Russ. He is knowledgeable, patient, friendly and most importantly a excellent guitar tutor. Always willing to go that extra mile to help. Highly recommended.
I have tried to teach myself to play for a few years but got knowhere, I have had lessons from Russ for three months I am now seeing results and enjoying practicing. Thanks Russ, haven't had a brew yet though More...
Been having Russell as my guitar teacher for quite a few years now and I think he's an excellent teacher, I don't think I would have learnt as much as I have done with any other teacher. He also makes lovely cups of tea for the lesson :) More...
