Helen T.
Despoina is lovely with my two daughters (8 and 11). They really enjoy their lessons. She is very attentive to the detail of how they play and really helps to improve their technique. She is very patient and friendly and clearly an excellent musician.

I started as a beginner taking lessons with Despoina a year ago, and I thoroughly recommend her as a teacher. Whether you're new to guitar or more experienced, Despoina has the knowledge, skills and patience (very important in my case!) to teach any level and any style. She's also great fun and (if you're nice to her) she might teach you fun Cypriot folk songs from her homeland! :-)
Craig S.
Despoina is professional, patient, friendly and fun! An excellent tutor who is able to instil confidence whatever your level of guitar ability. Highly recommended! 👍
