Student Testimonials

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.

James Ashcroft age 12 - Horsforth, Leeds

"David Bond has been teaching my twelve year old lad James to play electric lead guitar for a couple of months. He is always punctual and keeps me appraised of my lads progress. My sons improvement since getting together with David has been remarkable!

David is a very friendly and talented guitarist/tutor who is able to structure the lessons so my lad can easily understand what is required of him. He works at a pace where James doesn't feel pressured yet still wants to improve. James is comfortable with Davids style of teaching and enjoys learning from him.

I have already recommended David to friends of mine and will continue to do so in the future." - Ken, Father of James

Josey Howarth age 34 - Leeds

David Bond has been my bass instructor for several months now.  Not only is David patient, working with me to develop a strong technique, he ensures that every lesson is fun as well as informative.  He always shows up with a smile and we laugh while learning.  He has always been willing to work with my odd schedule (as I have kept him informed ahead of time). One of the best parts about lessons with him is how he incorporates songs that I am interested in learning while also bringing in new songs and styles I am not familiar playing.  He's supportive and I could not think of anyone else I could recommend more for learning how to play no matter how skilled you are!
