Before I took lessons, I had never played the guitar before. Now I can play songs and actually make the guitar sound good! I find I actually improve so much in the lesson, more than the whole week at home! Going to lessons is definitely a fun way to learn!
— Laura, London
Since I’ve started taking lessons, things have changed dramatically, my confidence has massively gone up, and the way I understand learning has changed dramatically. What I was looking for in a teacher is someone who is confidence, that I can respect that respects me. I am heavily based on loyalty and I feel my goals are placed as priority. I’ve got that the moment I walked through the door.”

I spent a long time looking for the right teacher, and it was when I met Darryl at Guitar Tuition East London that I knew I had found someone who can help and teach me the right things. He motivates me to practise every day because I see how much I am progressing. He is a honest man and I feel that I have not only found a Guitar Teacher but a friend for life.

I was quite scared when I first started playing because everyone made it look so easy. Now I play things straight away. I know what to do. There is a really calm atmosphere so you are never thinking: “Oh no, I might get this wrong’. The lessons are really relaxed and you learn a lot!”

My playing before I took lessons was stuck in a box. I was finding a guitar tab, and I could only play the guitar tab but I didn’t have any self expression and I didn’t know my way around the guitar. Since I started taking lessons, it has unlocked the fretboard and now I can put on a record, recognise what key it is in and just solo over it. Even my mum thought I was part of the record and she had no idea that I was playing the guitar till she saw it in my hands. It’s really nice now to be able to play along to some of my favourite music.
— Rob A, London
Before I started lessons, I got frustrated with YouTube because it was so overwhelming. And now that I’ve been taking lessons, I can work out my favourite songs and how to play it. I look forward to lessons every week! You will definitely get something ou of lessons. It really encourages and motivates me to keep playing.

Darryl is an amazing passionate teacher he really cares about development and wants to know what you want to learn. When I started learning guitar I was so frustrated with trying to teach myself online with youtube videos and books but it was just not working but then when I started taking guitar lessons with Darryl. Immediately it felt like he gave me the key to unlock the talent inside of me. So thank you for all your help.

Before I took lessons with Darryl, I was an absolute novice. I have been a huge fan of guitar music and never really tried to play. Within my first 10 lessons, I have learned several chords and neat techniques as well as scales and strumming patterns. Best of all, I have put these new skills to play along to some of my favourites by the likes of Oasis, Bob Marley, Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Each week, I leave lessons with a smile and a sense of achievement!”
— Satish, London
Excellent tutor. Before his guitar lessons I was shy and wouldn’t play in front of anyone but after a few guitar lessons, I found my confidence and am now happy to show off. 
Darryl’s teaching methods suited my style of learning as he found my weak spots and concentrates on them to improve my guitar playing progress.
Amazing workshops are available to attend which I’d advise, such variety in instructors and style! 
I’d recommend anyone of any age or level to attend because you will benefit greatly.

I know a lot more now, and the best thing about guitar lessons is that we play games and learn new things. I would recommend Guitar Tuition East london as I have learnt so much about the guitar!
— Aubane, 7, London
I knew there was a lot I didn’t know and I didn’t take to take playing guitar seriously in the past year. Since I started taking lessons, I now know what to practise on the guitar. Even with a short amount of time, I can optimize it to get the most out of it. I’ve found that since taking lessons, I know a lot more about chords, scales and keys, things that seemed difficult is now a lot easier. Now I can apply the music theory to guitar playing.

The lessons are varied and dynamic. I thoroughly enjoy the lessons and have found a new enthusiasm for practising. I am setting goals that I can see I will accomplish and can’t wait to get on this month’s workshop where we will be learning about playing with a band.

I would recommend Guitar Tuition East London for any level of abilities. Darryl’s stle, knowledge and enthusasiam are second to none.

Darryl is a great teacher at East Village Guitar Lessons London for guitarists of all ages and abilities. The lesson programme is all cleverly structured so you will pick up new skills quickly to develop all aspects of your guitar playing. The guitar lessons are always good fun, too, thanks to his enthusiasm. I can’t recommend their Guitar Lessons enough!
— Daniel P. Electric Guitarist
I’ve been playing the guitar for just over a year and before lessons I was a complete novice. My favourite things that I’ve learnt so far is learning my chords and being able to strum. And feeling independence because I learnt how to change the strings on the guitar. I can now play and know my way around the guitar, and I can play a whole lot better than before.

Darryl is a great teacher and with his great guitar programs, you can learn to shave years off your guitar playing. Darryl takes the time to get to know you and understand exactly what it is you want to achieve on guitar and he sets up a lesson plan tailored to you and what you need to do first, second, third etc... in order to help you achieve big results in a short period of time. If you’re a parent who’s looking to get your child high quality guitar lessons, if you’ve never touched the guitar, or if you’ve already been playing for a few years, Darryl will help you become the best guitar player you possibly can.
— Dan, Suffolk
I started guitar as a novice, I struggled at first but with Darryl’s constant encouragement, now I am able play a lot better than I ever imagined.
Darryl keeps his guitar lessons exciting and relevant. Ha has also invited various musicians to inspire and encourage learning.
His teaching of guitar theory is also valuable as we are able to take away written work and handouts which have been beneficial for me as a reference.
I would highly recommend their guitar lessons for all persons with all abilities.
Thanks Darryl for keeping me going even when I felt I couldn’t, I’ve achieved so much, more than I ever expected.

Darryl is a fantastic guitar teacher. Unlike all of the other teachers I have had, he doesn’t just give you abstract chord progressions to practice. He lets you develop by playing actually songs and understanding music.

Within one lesson I had played a Bob Marley song from start to finish! It felt great!”
— Michel, London
Darryl is a great teacher! He is very approachable and organised and I always enjoy our guitar lessons. I’ve made amazing progress in my guitar playing since I started a couple of months ago! I highly recommend his guitar lessons!

It’s been difficult finding material on the internet to learn how to play the guitar. I have progressed so much faster now that I take lessons. In 9 motnhs, I’m already learning how to do sweep picking! Now i can play songs like Metallica.”
