Really enjoyed my first lesson with Barnaby. He is very experienced in teaching and knows how to structure and fine tune learning to achieve the personal goals that are unique to each student. Highly recommended :) - Leare, Student
Barnaby is very knowledgeable and helpful! He is very good at explaining things and presenting music theory in various examples with different instruments. He is always on time, flexible and professional. I would recommend him to my friends and families - Ying, Student
Barnaby is a first-class musician and a great pianist. He has an easy and supportive manner which really helps students make good, sustained progress - Nicolas Walker, TeachFirst
In my experience of Barnaby as both a colleague and a friend I have always been struck by his innate ability to communicate with unpretentiousness, enthusiasm and flair. He has a relentless curiosity towards culture and never ceases to bring his wide ranging experiences into everything he does - Peter Thickett, Colleague
