I decided to learn bass guitar late in life. Being an absolute beginner, PJ offered to meet me at a local music store to give me his professional opinion and guidance. I started with PJ and have been having regular lessons with him ever since. PJ is a first rate professional bass player and an excellent teacher, his enthusiasm for bass is infectious. He adapts his lessons to me as an individual introducing new techniques at the right time to ensure my continued progress, whilst taking on board my personal goals e.g. teaching my preferred songs and being able to perform live at Jam nights (which PJ always comes along to.) He is friendly and encouraging and I look forward to every lesson.
