"Our son has just completed his first term of singing lessons with Rudd School of Rock and and has thoroughly enjoyed it. He has never had lessons before but loves to sing and his teacher has really helped his singing improve as well as his confidence. She has a great way with children, is very patient and kind and plans the lessons around the ability and interests of the individual student. She is very inspiring, and a lovely young lady."

"My son has had lessons with Rudd School Of Rock for several years now and is loving learning guitar. He is progressing in leaps and bounds thanks to plenty of practice and his teacher's patient and professional teaching methods. I would recommend lessons with Rudd School Of Rock to anyone wanting quality music lessons for their son/daughter or even for themselves!"

K Rassie

"My son has been having lessons with Rudd School of Rock for a couple of years now. During that time he has become a much more confident boy. Fraser really enjoys the lessons especially as his teacher goes out of his way to find songs/music that Fraser is keen to learn."

S Lynch

"To anyone considering learning to play guitar, I have had the pleasure of learning with Rudd School of Rock for over five years now and have enjoyed every moment. My teacher's dedication and interest in my progress made all the difference to me. He's a wonderful conscientious teacher that goes out of his way to make every lesson count. I can't thank him enough for all the work he's put into my playing. I can't recommend Rudd School of Rock enough!"

Peter Cook

"Rudd School of Rock taught my daughter guitar from when she was a complete beginner. Her teacher was very patient with explaining the chords and how to read the music. He made the lessons relaxing and fun while still focusing on improving her skills at every lesson. My daughter learned to play quickly and well under his guidance. I would recommend Rudd School of Rock to anyone who is looking for somewhere for their children to learn the guitar."

J Hill

"Our 9 year old daughter thoroughly enjoys her guitar lessons. We wondered if Isla's desire to play guitar was going to be a one-term wonder inspired by her meeting Jamie McDell but, with her teacher from Rudd School of Rock's gentle encouragement and enthusiasm, she has stuck with it. Her teacher selects contemporary pieces of music that kids actually want to play and are inspired to practice. They see success quickly. Her teacher is professional and punctual but also relaxed, with a sense of humour……and must also be outstandingly patient!"
