What they’re saying

“I cannot recommend Andrew more highly as an amazing teacher and an incredible craftsman, the art of making a guitar is one that is both incredibly satisfying and increases ones skill level in the most enjoyable of settings. I have met some amazing people through the journey of building not one, but two guitars and you do not even have to play as I am a non player but have two amazing instruments for future generations to enjoy”  Nicky P – Student Guitar Maker

“I’ve made 3 instruments with Andrew and am currently working on my 4th. Andrew is an outstanding teacher who really cares about the quality of your build and that your experience of the building process is great. You get so much more out of this than just a great guitar. If you are remotely interested in making a guitar (or ukulele) then get in touch with Andrew. You can’t go wrong”. Rod C – Student Guitar Maker

“Taking part in Andrew’s night class, I was able to build my dream acoustic! I’m extremely satisfied with the finished product, with Andrew’s skills, and attention to detail, pushing me to make the guitar I will enjoy for a lifetime!” Jono B – Student Guitar Maker
