Gareth is an amazing teacher. He has inspired all my 3 boys to excel in piano, even when the smallest one was on the verge of giving up, Gareth has managed to motivate him and now he is taking his grade one exam this spring. My older son gained a distinction in his grade 5 thanks to Gareth's inspirational classes. All are taught by Skype which I was not 100 percent sure of at first but it works brilliantly and I have no reservations about the boys doing Skype piano lessons at all. - M. Fanning
I have been tutored by Gareth for the last 10 years. Over this time, Gareth has been supportive, attentive and highly informative of what is needed in order for me to pass each grade and improve my ability in general. He is able to teach every individual in a different way and really understands how to bring out the best in his students. - A. Deng

As part of my piano and organ tuition, Gareth integrates the residential course into a personal plan which meets my needs by using a variety of methods suitable for live teaching and distance learning and which accommodates his timetable and mine. As well as being an outstanding musician who makes teaching fun, Gareth is very flexible in his approach to each student and I have made enormous progress since I started working with him. - M. Swan
Gareth is a talented musician, a great teacher and has a tremendous passion for what he does, which makes learning from him enjoyable. He explains things in a way which is easy to understand and helps improve and refine areas that you find difficult. I really enjoy both my lessons and the day events. His enthusiasm always brightens my day! - L. Ibel
