Feedback From Happy Customers:
I've never felt so confident on the guitar. Thanks rich! He has given me the driving force to play live gigs again
James Jenkins - Man From Reno
Richard's coaching skills have taken me from an aspiring songwriter (starting from scratch), to an accomplished guitar player with a few songs under my belt. His technical understanding of music and ability to answer endless questions has always impressed me. Coupled with a great understanding of people and excellent mentoring skills, his patience and encouragement has driven the best out of me. I can highly recommend him!

I enjoyed this course very much, especially learning the man, varied songs. I achieved much more than I ever thought possible. The general pace of the course was great and I was surprised at the results I achieved using Richards' methods. I have already reached many of my goals and feel so much closer to my Ultimate Guitar Dream! I don't want to stop learning now! I can't imagine my life without the guitar. It's one of the best things I have ever achieved for myself. I play every day - I'm hooked! I would recommend this system anytime.

The course is very easy and extremely clear to understand and follow. I found the visualisation techniques very useful. I thought they might be a waste of time at first! I am very pleased with all my achievements over the past 4 weeks. I have achieved all I had hoped for. I am now planning to join a band. Excellent programme - I really enjoyed it. Thank You!

You are a truly inspirational teacher. George just has to ask to learn a tune and he has not only learnt one but two in a session. He is so motivated to practice that it is hard to keep him off his guitar. Not only are you an excellent guitar teacher but you have taught him skills for life i.e self belief,and coping strategies for times when is not feeling so confident.
I can not thank you enough for what you have done for George. Thank you for the time you have given to George, for your understanding and insight. Everyone I speak to says the same.
You are an amazing person.
Best Wishes for your future. I'm sure you will continue to be an inspiration.
