"Having a great time. Huw is a really committed and diligent teacher. He is always prepared, knows what he's talking about and is flexible to what I prefer to learn. As a professional who learns in the evenings after work, the arrangement I have with RMS and Huw is very convenient and I learn a lot!" - Hanns N
"Huw is a top-notch session musician and an inspiring teacher... As a teacher, Huw is patient, attentive and flexible. He encourages a musical and fun approach to learning the instrument and goes out of his way to provide learning resources, many helpful tips and recordings. Huw is comfortable playing different styles - I’m learning mostly funk and soul and Huw’s playing is inspiring (check out his YouTube playalongs). I highly recommend Huw if you are looking to to learn the bass, or wanting to improve your playing!" - Eddie B
"In less than six months via Zoom, Huw has taken our son (aged 6) from no prior musical knowledge to playing and singing along to all sorts of brilliant ukulele songs and tunes. Besides the musical adventure ranging from Chuck Berry to Bob Marley to Ninjago and Match of the Day theme tunes (many of which Huw has specially arranged), along the way our son has also learnt lots of musical and tabular notation through Huw's versions. Most importantly though, he thoroughly enjoys the lessons, due to the great rapport Huw has built with him, not least down to his eminently patient, encouraging approach! Thank you very much, Huw!" - Jamie S
