Karen & Mandy at the Boom Room Studio are excellent and friendly teachers for music students of all abilities and ages. Our sons, aged 13 and 9 thoroughly enjoy attending lessons each week. They have learnt quickly and after a few months, were playing cover songs and writing songs of their own. We would recommend Karen and Mandy at the Boom Room Studio without hesitation.

My guitar lessons are awesome. She helps me develop so many skills not only on the guitar but as a person too.
I've had lessons since I was 13 and have loved them ever since I started to play. She helped me develop my composition skills and my knowledge about music theory in a way I can understand which helped me to get a B grade in GCSE music and progress to do A level music in the sixth form I go to currently.
She's not only a teacher she's a good friend too who listens and shares life's stories to put you on the right course throughout your life."

During the eight years I have been taking drum lessons, Karen has catered to all my musical and academic needs: when I needed to do my theory grades to get on to a sixth form music course, she had me prepared for the exam within three lessons; when I had to perform several times for that music course, she helped me achieve an A grade every time. Karen has also taught me how to read music, while enjoying playing drums rather than having my head stuck in a text book! Thanks to Karen I can play many styles of music, and enjoy playing very technical, challenging music with many talented musicians. I thoroughly recommend Karen to anyone who wants to excel at playing the drums and have fun at the same time!
Mandy is a great guitar teacher. She has taught my for about 4 years and I think I have improved a lot since then. She teaches me a lot of songs of my choice which is more fun and exciting.
But I also learn classic blues and other songs on my guitar.
She helped me a lot to improve my skills and now I'm more confident to play at school concerts and other things.
I really enjoy my guitar lesson with Mandy

Karen has been teaching my son for a number of years. She has always been patient and encouraging and he enjoys every lesson.
Excellent teaching! She has a brilliant rapour with children and adults alike. My daughter would love a lesson every day with Mandy. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.
Karen never minds explaining over again if I don't get it right and is always joking and cheerful. She gives me good advice.
Mandy is the wisest person I know. She has knowledge of guitar keyboards and drums. I would never go to anyone else. She's awesome!

I decided to learn drums on a bit of a whim, and I'm so glad I chose the Boom Room Studio, I have learnt so much including how to read drum music, and the time at the studio is always such a pleasure and great fun. I like that you learn the essentials but can also pretty much go straight into learning songs you love too. Karen is an inspirational teacher and an amazing drummer. I didn't have much confidence that I'd be any good but the lesson is now one of my favourite parts of the week. I'd recommend trying the drums to everyone and I'd particularly recommend Karen as your tutor.
Mandy is a fantastic teacher, she is fun to be around and being such a great guitarist herself, she is an inspiration, after just a few lessons I am totally hooked and feel like I'm learning a lot really quickly.
