George is unfailingly positive and encouraging during our lessons together. He goes the extra mile by sending an emailed summary of each lesson that I use for review.
The breadth of his musical knowledge is apparent in his replies to my many questions on musical theory.
Our hour together every Wednesday is one of the high points of my week.
