It was a very engaging class.  What I liked was the way the class was taught.  Zac gently led us into learning the music, and by the end of the hour we had got it.  Lovely space to learn in too.  Ruth

Excellent pace and very friendly tuition.  Really enjoyable. Kim

Enthusiasm for playing inspired by Zak. Guy

Very impressed by ability of teacher to get us playing tunes very quickly and in considerable variety.  I am very un-musical but with a lot of practice I think I might learn to play even a little bit, which is something I wouldn't have thought possible before I started.  Richard
