WHAT A GREAT TEACHER!

My son had his very first guitar lesson with Mark! What a great teacher! He let myself and my wife stay to observe the whole session so we all felt at ease and comfortable! Welcoming us into his home/ studio. Full of knowledge and experience and teaching from a blank canvas! He was so informative and my son cannot wait for his next session! Gave him some exercises to do before his next session and I can already hear a massive improvement! What a great teacher… highly recommend!!!

REALLY PATIENT AND ENCOURAGING

“I didn’t start learning guitar until I was 33 and Mark was (and is) my first teacher. I knew I’d be rubbish and I was a bit nervous but Mark was really patient and encouraging. Nearly four years later he’s still just as patient and encourages me to explore what I love about music.

Mark is a great teacher and a phenomenal musician. He can hear things once and play them in minutes and talk you through how to get there and how to make it your own. He’s also a lot of fun!”

TREMENDOUS PROGRESS IN MY PLAYING!

I first came across Mark Bennett Guitar Tuition when seeking guitar lessons. Mark’s reviews and professionalism stood out to me, and I decided to take lessons from him. This is the best decision I could have made! I’ve been receiving tuition from Mark for a couple of months. I can honestly say that I’ve seen tremendous progress in my guitar playing and music theory. I also received support and advice on purchasing a new guitar which was very helpful. Mark is a patient and dedicated teacher who encourages me to be the best guitar player I can be. I look forward to further cultivating my craft under Mark’s teaching.

A BRILLIANT GUITAR TEACHER

Mark has been teaching me for more than 5 years. He’s been a brilliant guitar teacher and for about half a year now he’s been just as good of a bass guitar teacher. He’s very versatile and will help you learn whatever you decide to throw at him, one lesson I showed him my harmonica and I found out that he used to play professionally, so I spent that lesson learning how the harmonica works and is played. Mark’s lessons never feel restricting or stressful and I highly recommend his lessons to anyone else either looking to start learning a new instrument, or looking to find a new teacher).

REALLY PATIENT AND ENCOURAGING

I’ve been a pupil of Mark’s for some time now both face-to-face and via Skype. After every session I feel that I’ve learned something or improved in some way. He’s a demanding teacher but has patience and humour and his lessons cover both theory and technique. He’s a talented performer (see YouTube “Cover Stories”) and that itself inspires – I just wish I’d met him earlier in my guitar journey!

HE TAILORS THE LESSONS TO SUPPORT WHAT I WANT TO GET OUT OF THEM

My sister and I have been learning guitar and bass separately with Mark since 2016 (he must be doing something right!). I used to see him in person but since Covid I’ve been doing online lessons and they work just as well and are very convenient. Mark allows the freedom to explore the music of my own choice, so essentially he tailors the lessons to support what I wish to get out of them. However, he always has great suggestions that I haven’t been exposed to yet, often in the blues/jazz genres, and always suggests alternative arrangements for songs. Mark is incredibly skilled and helpful, and it is amazing to think of how much I have progressed since I started lessons with him, both instrumentally, as well as becoming a more confident musician. Not only is Mark an amazing teacher but also a great friend, and he has really had an impact on my love for music.”

ENCOURAGES ME WITH MY SONGWRITING

Mark is a enthusiastic, patient and sensitive teacher. He’s helped me develop my technique, awareness of scales, modes and my general musicality. He’s also encouraged me with my songwriting, and enabled me to do something I didn’t realise I could do through suggesting that I sing, and supporting me with that.

WENT THE EXTRA MILE

Mark went the extra mile with advising us what guitar and equipment is best to buy for 12 year old boy in order to be able to start learning to play an electric guitar. After first lesson Mark kept my son for half an hour longer to set up my son’s guitar and amp. My son loves guitar lessons with Mark.

IMMEDIATELY PUT ME AT EASE

I had my first lesson with Mark on Thursday and his experience and teaching strategy immediately put me at ease. I’m quite confident I will be taking more classes.”

LOW STRESS AND FUN WAY TO LEARN, USING MUSIC YOU CHOSE…

“My two girls have been learning guitar (mainly electric, some acoustic, plus a bit of bass) with Mark for around 5 years. It’s been a great and low-stress way for them to quietly become proficient at guitar. I wish I’d had this chance when I was young. He’s been very happy to work with them on songs that they suggest, which makes it feel quite self-directed and motivating, however he also includes great balance of technique to continually raise the skill level. He has a real knack of song arrangement and enabling you to get great dynamics into a performance. Plus he’s a lovely guy with vault of interesting anecdotes. What’s there not to like ? Overall a great choice to learn guitar for a wide range of genres. Simply add student and motivation !”

GREAT GUITAR TEACHER

“Mark is not only an incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging teacher but an extremely talented guitarist. Some of the stuff he plays is awesome, if not better than the original!

I came to Mark with zero knowledge of how to play guitar and right from the get-go, Mark actively helped me to find the perfect guitar for me as well as any required accessories and got me playing straight away. A year later and I already have a handful of great tunes under my belt.

Lessons are fun and varied, covering everything from learning scales, picking/strumming patterns, notes and chords to learning your favourite songs every week. Mark can pretty much play anything in any style. Perfect for beginners or advanced players alike.

Mark is patient with but also challenges me to push myself to play better. I love playing and enjoy my lessons, it’s what keeps me coming back!

Lessons available over Skype or in person.

Definitely recommend if you’re interested in lessons”

NOW PLAYING IN A BAND, HOME RECORDING AND SINGING

“I’ve had lessons with Mark for several years and it’s really moved me from a complete beginner to playing in a band, home recording, and singing too which I never imagined I’d do. I’ve also picked up a fair amount of music theory as well.

Mark is willing to take on most songs I throw at him to teach me how to play them, as well as having a vast number of songs he can draw from to teach you, and it’s interesting to see how he covers a tune and puts a personal twist on things.

Not much gets past him, so expect him to pick up on your bad habits but he’ll often have multiple ways to look at a problem and address it. Lessons are quite open in format and often go off in all sorts of directions from where they start! Highly recommended!“

FANTASTIC GUITAR TEACHER

“My 13 year old  daughter is very much into classic rock and wanted to play guitar so I was keen to find an experienced teacher with a broad knowledge of rock & blues. A good friend of mine recommended Mark from his own positive experience and assured me he would be a great fit us.
My daughter is typical of many newbies in that she wants to be able to play right away and thanks to Mark’s she has picked it up rapidly! The techniques she is learning are staying with her and this has a lot to do with the way Mark delivers the teaching. It’s easy to digest and there’s no pressure, which keeps it fun. It’s a relaxed environment and Mark uses analogies to explain certain parts of theory. Evie looks forward to the weekly lessons and told me she has learned a lot in a short time. Mark’s approach encourages the student to develop their own style and I consider this a valuable attribute. Highly, highly recommended!”

WISHED I’D FOUND HIM EARLIER!!!

“After 35 years as a wannabe in a covers band I found Mark and have been taught by him for 4 years now……. I wish I’d found him years ago……he combines theory with techniques and whilst we often use well known songs there’s always a twist and great learning points. All this plus he’s a great bloke with a fascinating and impressive history.”

RAPID GUITAR IMPROVEMENT THROUGH LESSONS VIA SKYPE

“I have been having electric guitar lessons with Mark using Skype for two years. Mark is very knowledgeable and easy to get on with. We have progressed through various exercises and songs and I can now confidently play a small repertoire and even sing a little. My wife sometimes comes in and says is that you playing that? I always look forward to my weekly guitar lesson and the hour really flies by

The use of Skype works really well for me Mark and I are in different parts of the country, I just use an ipad on a music stand, no travelling or parking required. My Grandson aged 8 is about to start lessons with Mark and I have no hesitation in recommending him.”
