"For the last 2 years our son has really enjoyed his piano lessons. Alphie is an inspiring and charismatic teacher who has managed to make learning fun and his progress has felt natural and without stress. We've had both face-to-face and Skype lessons and I can honestly say that for non-musical parents it has been a joy to see our son grow in confidence and become happy to play in public. The music lessons in school never caught his imagination and he showed no real interest but playing piano with Alphie has been a totally different experience. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone learning an instrument." Sark Kenny

" Alphie is an exceptional teacher who ensures that his students achieve more than they ever thought possible. Patient, innovative, empathetic and inspirational". Trystan Williams, Principal Venturers' Academy, Bristol

"My children love going to X-Factor Studios. They have been attending for over 18 months and their progress has been outstanding. Not only have they fully embraced learning the piano and guitar but they have developed an enthusiasm and appreciation of music altogether. It has instilled confidence in them to perform not only in front of family members and friends but also the whole class at school.

Each lesson is tailor made to suit their tastes and ability and by using the latest technology and unique teaching methods my children are able to recreate popular chart songs as well as classical pieces to a very high standard. This combination is impressive - it wows me everytime and I am extremely proud of their achievements." Lisa Richards
