TESTIMONIALS


Since 2005 Rudd School Of Rock has been the music school of choice for hundreds of students. We have successfully taught from age 5 to 75. Many of our students have been learning with us for several years and we are often over-subscribed, so we must be doing something right!

What Our Students Have To Say About Us...

"Our son has just completed his first term of singing lessons with Rudd School of Rock and and has thoroughly enjoyed it. He has never had lessons before but loves to sing and his teacher has really helped his singing improve as well as his confidence. She has a great way with children, is very patient and kind and plans the lessons around the ability and interests of the individual student. She is very inspiring, and a lovely young lady."

"To anyone considering learning to play guitar, I have had the pleasure of learning with Rudd School of Rock for over five years now and have enjoyed every moment. My teacher's dedication and interest in my progress made all the difference to me. He's a wonderful conscientious teacher that goes out of his way to make every lesson count. I can't thank him enough for all the work he's put into my playing.  I can't recommend Rudd School of Rock enough!" P Cook

"Have had lessons at Rudd School of Rock for a couple of years.  My teacher is a great guy and excellent at what he does. Easy to talk to and hang out with jamming. He is into all genres of music and is happy to teach you any special requests. Definitely wouldn’t go anywhere else. Give Rudd School of Rock a call." L Pearson

"Rudd School of Rock taught my daughter guitar from when she was a complete beginner. Her teacher was very patient with explaining the chords and how to read the music. He made the lessons relaxing and fun while still focusing on improving her skills at every lesson. My daughter learned to play quickly and well under his guidance. I would recommend Rudd School of Rock to anyone who is looking for somewhere for their children to learn the guitar." J Hill

"Our 9 year old daughter thoroughly enjoys her guitar lessons. We wondered if Isla's desire to play guitar was going to be a one-term wonder inspired by her meeting Jamie McDell but, with her teacher from Rudd School of Rock's gentle encouragement and enthusiasm, she has stuck with it. Her teacher selects contemporary pieces of music that kids actually want to play and are inspired to practice. They see success quickly. Her teacher is professional and punctual but also relaxed, with a sense of humour……and must also be outstandingly patient!" S Westlake

 "Guitar lessons with Rudd School of Rock are a great way to learn how to play the guitar. My teacher teaches in a relaxed manner, yet sees the potential in his students and motivates them to achieve success. His choice of songs and methods of playing are professional standard. I would recommend Rudd School of Rock lessons to anyone who would like to learn the guitar." P Williams

"I was fortunate to have learned guitar with Rudd School of Rock for three years. My teacher is an exceptionally talented and knowledgeable musician who is able to motivate students with his positive approach towards teaching. He is organised, patient, helpful and a generally great guy. He not only teaches you songs of specific genres which you enjoy, but exposes you to a range of music which I feel is important when beginning to learn guitar. He explains everything clearly and positively encourages you if you do not pick something up straight away. He gave me the confidence to play guitar on stage in my school’s Rock Band and also in public through busking. I have recommended Rudd School of Rock to others and would not hesitate to do so again." S Herbert

"I’ve been playing basic chord type guitar for a long time – more folk and sing-along than anything else – but since forming a covers band with a few friends a few years ago, I wanted to learn more lead guitar style. I was recommended to talk to Peter Rudd of Rudd School of Rock, and I must admit I was a little daunted when checking out his website and you-tube clips of his play.  I wasn’t in his league at all! But the year or more I have been taking weekly lessons with Peter have been a very enjoyable part of the week, and in looking back to the start of this time, I realise that I have achieved quite a lot of new skills and understanding of the guitar – besides having a friendly new go-to in the music world. Peter is very flexible in his approach to teaching, and can adapt to whatever is required.  We have learned some standard practice pieces and warm-ups, some lead licks, and always some challenging new pieces.  We don’t linger if the pieces don’t resonate with me, but there is always encouragement to try something new. Having a weekly lesson looming also concentrates the mind (and fingers!) to practice, as Peter doesn’t play for me, and sadly I can’t use his fingers…….Peter’s engaging and warm personality, plus his superb ear and guitar skill level makes each lesson enjoyable.  From my experience, I’m sure that Peter can help prospective pupils at any level." M Hope

"I met Peter Rudd back in 2009. I had been playing guitar for over 30 years and I decided to take private lessons for the first time.  I chose to do that with Rudd School of Rock.  My teacher was great.  He would bring lyrics and guitar tabs for any song I wanted to learn, and work on them straight away. I have had a recording session with Rudd School of Rock, where I've been recorded playing two tracks of guitar and two tracks of vocals, for a Snow Patrol cover song. It was lots of fun.  I used that demo CD to get into a band for the first time; and have been with the band for the past five years.  I've also put my son through lessons with Rudd School of Rock." C Weerasinghe

"I started taking guitar lessons with Rudd School of Rock about 5 years ago. I was truly a novice, and although I am no Eric Clapton, I am a lot closer now than I was then! My teacher has a truly great ear for music. We have listened to and he has tabbed innumerable songs for me. So I have learned to play music I really love, and through that have learned an enormous amount about many aspects of theory, playing and listening. It has always been fun.  I highly recommend Rudd School of Rock to anyone at any level who want to advance their musical and guitar abilities." J Villiger
