Perfect! Louis is always enthusiastic and able to find positives hidden among my wrong notes. The approach means I look forward to the next lesson and ever more challenging pieces. Suddenly I am realising that I have made a lot of progress through his skill and patience.

Louis's response

Richard's enthusiasm and commitment to improving his playing is fantastic. Elements that he initially struggled with have been improved drastically and his improvement continues to grow.

Louis Barclay is an excellent teacher; patient, clear, fun and thorough. I would recommend him to beginners and more advanced students alike.

I found Louis to be really easy to get on with and at the same time a really conscientious and skilled teacher. I learnt so much. What he doesn’t know about playing the trumpet isn’t worth knowing! Very reliable with all the arrangements etc. Excellent!

E
Ella

Louis has been teaching my daughter the trumpet for nearly a year now and she thoroughly enjoys her lessons! He is a really fun and engaging tutor, with all the technical knowledge to back it up. She has made real progress and we are grateful to have Louis as the teacher! I would definitely recommend him to others!

William

I have been learning the trumpet for 10 years, and have recently started tuition with Mr Barclay. Throughout the two years under his guidance my technique has improved tenfold, but more importantly, my love of the instrument has been truly ignited.

Stefan

I’ve been having lessons with Louis for many years now. He’s a great and fun teacher, who helped me achieve a distinction in my grade 6 exam!
