Student Testimonials

Eddie age 11 - Leeds

"David is always patient and helpful. I enjoy my lessons."

"Eddie tried two other tutors before David and didn't have the enthusiasm to practice between guitar lessons. I'm really pleased with the progress he is making now. He enjoys playing different styles of music, the lessons are designed to suit Eddie's needs, and he is motivated to learn more" - Lindsay, mother of Eddie

Ryan Linford age 18 - Wakefield, Yorkshire

I have a weekly guitar lesson with Mr Bond. He is easy to get on with, lessons are well structured and tailored to my goals. David is very flexible and able to teach a wide variety of styles and techniques. I play metal and blues, Mr Bond has greatly helped me develop, and improve my playing and technique. He listens to what I want to achieve and then structures my lessons around reaching my goal. I would recommend him as a guitar teacher to anyone of any level.

John Pailing age 17 - Leeds

David Bond has been my guitar teacher for almost 5 months now. Ever since I began getting private guitar lessons of him, my all round skills on the guitar has improved alot!

When it comes to teaching David is professional and easy to get along with. I really enjoy Davids style of teaching because he lets me have some contol in what I learn and shows me how to improve. David makes sure that I know the theory behind whatever it is he is teaching me to give me a better understanding of the the guitar.

I would recommend David to anyone who is looking to improve their guitar playing or music theory because of his great approach to teaching and his well organised lessons.

Paul Marcroft age 30 - Leeds

Despite having already played guitar for many years, David has shown me a whole to approach including things I never thought possible! Private guitar lessons are well structured, challenging, contain a good mix of theory and the practical side and, above all, teach technique applicable to most styles of playing. Perfect for expanding your creativity and feeling that anything is possible. David is an excellent teacher and, above all, patient. Very important when teaching someone stuck in their ways like me.
