What people say about Express Guitar

Here are some more reviews for guitar teacher Simon Jackson in Nottingham.  There are also some great videos of happy guitar students playing.  Enjoy!

“Simon is a first rate guitar teacher who really gets the most out of his students. He is both engaging and inspiring which has helped our son find the motivation to practice without being “nagged”. His focus on technique from day one has meant Byron has improved in leaps and bounds in the short time that he has been having lessons with Simon. I would recommend Simon to anyone thinking of taking up the guitar, whatever age you are.”

– Yvonne Richards – Byron’s Mum

“Simon is a very friendly and challenging teacher who really knows his stuff and I’m really enjoying the fun of learning.  I would recommend Simon unreservedly and I am really looking forward to future work with him.  For me, he is going into jazz and Brazilian jazz and improvisation which I really want to do.  Simon has the ability and experience to do that.  I hope to stay with him for a considerable length of time.”

–  John Shaw – Retired headmaster

“Can’t recommend Simon highly enough. A superlative musician and an exemplary guitar teacher with a facility in countless styles and genres. Jazz, Folk, Classical. Flamenco, Rock. You name it; he can play and teach it. Erudite, passionate and, above all, patient.  He possesses that unnerving quality in the best teachers of knowing exactly what you need from each lesson even before you’ve said anything. Great guitar teacher. Great guy. Book a lesson.”

–  Al Draper

“I had a few lessons from this legend many years ago, great teacher, great player, great guy! If you want to learn acoustic guitar this is the man to see!”

“At what I shall only say is a more senior age, I decided to take guitar lessons.

 My hope was to learn a few chords and strum some simple popular songs. My only aim, at the time,  was to become confident enough to actually plug in an electric guitar at a guitar shop.

 After only a few lessons, Simon has convinced me I can do much more, particularly in terms of improvisation. The lessons are very enjoyable and tailored to suit my own musical tastes, whilst still learning the basic techniques required to play in a variety of styles.

I would recommend Simon to anyone who is serious about learning.  He is an excellent teacher and he can’t half play too!”
