We were really pleased with Martin. He was a thorough teacher and took Emily to Grade III standard until the travel from Keynsham became too much. We especially liked his sensitivity to Emily when she was young and shy, and he managed to build her confidence as we progressed. A definite recommendation. Lisa Fisher.
Martin took Kit through a whole variety of skills, and adapted to the changes Kit wanted admirably: we started on keyboard, with composition and improvisation, then moved on to Piano. The composition went up to A level standard, and then Kit decided to do exams so we did Grade V Jazz and he got a distinction. He decided to do music at University during the 6th form, and so we then rapidly went through Grade VI and VII Piano, and Kit responded well to the sudden increase in practice and technical demands! We really feel Martin gave Kit a thorough grounding in a wide area of musical and technical skills in both jazz and classical styles, and are pleased with his significant contribution towards Kit's decision to do music at University.

We’ll have to go a long way to find a teacher as good as you. We both really believe that. [DB]
You’ve really fired up Joe’s Piano playing. We’re both very grateful. [GB]
“Martin took Jonathan on at the age of 11, and I really felt that he brought out Jon’s potential. He covered Classical Piano getting an astonishingly high mark at his final exam at the age of 18 (Grade VII). The work on chord sheets has been a great blessing for what he has done in church. I am sure the Piano will continue to be a rich part of Jon’s life.” H.B.
