What My Students Say

  • Pete always seems to have a gem of wisdom on whoever you might be studying that week which always adds to the lesson. I would highly recommend Pete for all levels of guitar!

    Ian Fitzgerald
  • Pete has been teaching my son Tom now for a couple of years. From a complete beginner to the point that he is now about to sit his GCSE in music. Well structured lessons covering theory and a wide range of music styles. Highly recommended! 

    Martin Deane
  • I have been learning Bass Guitar with Pete for a few years now and can thoroughly recommend him. It is a rare privilege to be taught by such an excellent and knowledgeable musician, someone who seems to have infinite patience and stories about whatever type of music we are studying. My lessons with him are a real pleasure.

    Cliff Ford
  • Pete is not just an excellent teacher. Most of all he can inspire and make you understand and love music.

    Krzysztof Myslinski
  • We first came across Pete Farrugia almost four years ago now. My son regularly has lessons with Pete and we could not be happier. His musical knowledge is phenomenal and we are very pleased with my son's progress. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to anyone who is considering guitar lessons, at whatever level or age group.
