Testimonials and References

"Huw is a talented and professional tutor with a creative and engaging teaching style. He is personable, reliable, flexible, and consistent, and he provides excellent service at a price that is more than reasonable. He goes the extra mile for his students, adapting the lessons to suit their strengths and improve their weaknesses, and is an invaluable and trustworthy contact for advice regarding the purchase of instruments, tuning, set up, etc. I greatly value my time under Huw's tuition, and I would not hesitate to work with him in the future." Jessica Ranthum 24 yr old Journalist

“Thanks very much for everything, it was amazing learning with you, hopefully I will be able to come back in the future“ Adam Davies – 17 years old leaving for college

"Huw's taught me drums since I was 8. Always in a relaxed environment and has taken me from complete novice to a distinction in grade 6 and am very thankful for everything Huw has done and taught me and hope to work with him in the future. Thanks again" Jac Rees Drummer with All Dead All Dead.

"I had no drumming experience when I started lessons with Huw but very quickly I was up and running with some basic grooves. Three months in and I'm now drumming along to my favourite tracks and improving with every lesson. Huw is a very competent drummer with lots of experience playing in different styles in various bands and a great teacher with tons of patience! I would thoroughly recommend lessons with Huw to anyone looking to begin drumming or improve their skills. Thanks Huw!" Liam Tandy.

Hey Huw, I just wanted to say thanks for all the lessons, they were awesome, I’d love to carry on but I’m not being payed as much as I was before the holidays and sixth form has been pretty stressful, but I just wanted to send my gratitude on how much I appreciate how well you’ve taught me, earlier tonight my band had played Sweet Child O’ Mine in front of 400+ people which was my first open performance ever and it was the scariest thing I’ve ever done but I managed to pull through it with minimal mistakes and a tremendous amount of work but I couldn’t have actually done anything like this if it wasn’t for your help, so thank you so much for putting up with me, it’s been a pleasure and I hope all goes well in future - Lewys Paine 16 year old

I have known Huw for over 10 years as a fellow professional in the music
industry. In recent years, he and I have collaborated in the field of drumkit
teaching as Huw not only a great drumkit player, but is also a well informed,
dedicated and forward thinking drumkit teacher . I would not hesitate in
recommending him in any musical capacity.
I am sure you will find, also, that Huw is one of the most conscientious and
reliable people you could meet. I am happy to provide Huw with a positive
reference, if you need any more information, please do not hesitate to contact
Yours sincerely,
Colin Woolway
