He challenges and pushes his students to go outside their comfort zone. Striving to achieve his caliber of excellence, intelligence and greatness is not for the faint of heart. He dedicates extreme amounts of time and passion to his craft and his students. It is nearly impossible to survive being a successful student musician in Liverpool without his guidance but he is an acquired taste. Once you have earned his attention and respect, however, the sky's the limit. He is truly a rare gift.

Good teacher, knows how to play, knows how to teach how to play, is driven. But, overall, hes not a very nice person. Arrogant, self-consumed, and rude.
