MNEMONIC memory-boosting procedures and relaxation methods are just a few of the many techniques used by a music teacher to get "the very best" from his students.
Chris Johnys uses a modern coaching practice to teach almost anyone to play a wide range of instruments.
The 38-year-old told the WHT the aim is to prevent teaching from becoming dry.
"Each one of my students receives a completely custom-designed course to suit their exact requirements, personality and goals.
"Whether they're young or old, I try to make the learning process as painless, smooth and enjoyable as possible.
"I don't just teach 'dry' musical knowledge but combine postural techniques, relaxation methods, mnemonic memory-boosting ideas and other special means, offering a completely new way of teaching music, which is ideal for the busy modern person."
Chris, of Thistle Grove, WGC, started the firm after a spell of illness ruled him out of 'nine-to-five' work.
He can teach piano (classical or pop/rock styles), keyboards, guitars (acoustic, electric, bass), bluegrass banjo, blues harmonica, drum kit and percussion, vocals, songwriting and composition.
He said: "If you would like to learn to play Chopin on the piano, Jimi Hendrix on the electric guitar or perhaps improve your music sight-reading, I can show you how.
"If you would like to find out how to write your own music and songs in any style, then I can also help.
"I place emphasis on excellence of technique in playing - this is the foundation of all great playing."
Chris, who has a recording studio in his home and can create CD-quality demo recordings, is "very happy" to do house visits.
"I'm happy to answer any enquiries at any time by phone, text or email.
"Students need never feel 'stuck' as I am always available to help, not just during lessons.
"I also specialise in helping those who have started to learn music in the past but have become disheartened.
"The greatest joy for me is in helping others to grow into the musicians they deserve to be."
