Laura is an excellent teacher. She brings a wonderful energy to the lessons and she has a great way of playing alongside me so we play together rather than me feeling like I have to play for her. Laura has really helped me diversify my music and she encourages me to share my music whenever possible as at the end of the day that’s what it’s really about. I have learnt a variety of skills and enjoy working through the grades. Laura will help me with whatever I want to work on each week, so if I have a performance coming up at school she will help me get up to speed. Laura is good at spotting the bits of guitar playing that I tend to neglect. She turns up for my lessons with different types of guitar to develop my skills in these areas. This approach has helped me to diversify my playing. She has a very creative approach so learning is fun as well as challenging and interesting. I really recommend her as a teacher. Recently we went to see her perform with her band, Parachute for Gordo, at the West End Centre, Aldershot. It was an amazing gig, really inspiring, and I had a go at the open mic which was a first. I have been having lessons with her for about one year and look forward to lots more.
