My lessons with Rory were truly fantastic! He is one of the most encouraging teachers out there, and made every lesson fun and relaxing. Rory can help conquer the biggest task with ease, yet you still have fun whilst learning. I would recommend him to any of my friends, as he is a delight and loves what he does.

All the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and benefitted greatly from the session which I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who could take advantage of their friendly and approachable attitude to jazz workshops. Simply brilliant experience all round.
