You told us what you thought

"As I told you in Lippiano, I had a very, very good time with you and the teachers and the group. The best guitar workshop I ever been to! By far! I would love to come back next year!"

Martin E

"​Honestly it's not possible to pick a favourite part: it was all fantastic. But I guess the gig in the local town square has to be right up there..!"


"...Guitar Breaks has definitely helped boost my passion for this wonderful instrument, so huge thanks to you for that."

Will G

"Thank you again for everything. It's no easy task to organise that many people, let alone musicians for 5 days! Was honestly one of the best times, if not the best I've ever had."
