« Char has been my guitar instructor for nine years this month. I started with an extremely basic knowledge of the guitar and can now play a wide variety of classical and folk songs. Her teaching style is perfect for me, with emphasis on the basics but freedom to explore once the basics are up to standard. I recommend Char to anyone wanting to improve their guitar skills. »
