“Hi Martyn. Thanks so much for being a part of our Wedding, you sounded fantastic and everyone commented on how great you were. Cavatina sounded amazing walking down the isle, and I can’t wait to hear it again when we get the video back. Thanks again!”
Arlene & Paul, (Bride and Groom, Culcreuch)

“Good evening Martyn. We all thank you for your excellent musicianship  and contribution to Carolyn’s wedding. Many guests commented that you set  absolutely the right tone for the venue. Kind regards”
Alan Green, (Father of the Bride, Glasgow)

“Just a note to say a HUGE thanks for playing at our wedding! You were a great success and everyone has been complimenting you! You helped us create the right vibe for the day which was one that was relaxed but fun! And you nailed Avril 14th for me walking down the aisle – it was amazing! We were so happy with it! Can’t recommend you more! Thank you so much! xxx”
Kelly (Bride)

“We are back in sunny Abu Dhabi and just wanted to say again thank you so much for playing at our wedding last Sunday.  We had a super day and I’ve been grabbing video from people, so I could hear more snippets of your playing, which received so much praise!  It was a nice break from the norm to have a guitarist instead of the usual string quartets or pianists.  We hope to get to come see you soon as George is a huge rock / metal fan … In fact, if he had his way, we would have been entering the marquee to Fear of the Dark 🙂
Again, thank you for providing your musical genius and we hope to hear you properly one day soon!   Best wishes, Lisa & G.”
Lisa & George (Bride and Groom, Glasgow)

“Thank you so much for your contribution to Caroline and Gustavo’s wedding on Saturday. Your playing was absolutely fabulous and gave the Spanish Theme a wonderful lift. It was absolutely lovely and so many people commented on how beautifully you played and how great the tunes were. I know it was harder for you to set up being outside but everyone appreciated your contribution to the day and it made such a difference. Many many thanks.”
John (Father of the Bride, Berwickshire)

“Gustavo and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day so special. It meant a lot to us to have the Spanish element present in our day, and your fingers played magnificently. Several of our guests commented on how beautiful the music was. You have made it a day to remember.”
Caroline & Gustavo (Bride & Groom, Berwickshire)

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your lovely guitar playing at Ben and Lindsay’s wedding last Saturday. The classical section was beautiful and your evening session was brilliant.  Everyone was amazed and enthralled by your skills. People kept saying ‘who is that guy – he’s fantastic’. And you were – you helped to make it an unforgettable day.”
Irene (Mother of the Bride, Wedding, Sussex)

“Just wanted to say thank u for playing at our wedding we had a fantastic night and u were great and a lot of our guests said the same”
Amy & Andrew (Bride & Groom, Rotherham, Yorkshire)

“We wanted to thank you again for everything on the wedding day.  We really were delighted with the music, both the classical throughout the drinks reception and the evening reception. Loads of our guests commented on how good you were and thought it was actually a record playing!”
Gillian & Neil (Wedding, Loch Lomond)

“My family really enjoyed Martyn playing at Pittodrie House Hotel for the evening reception.  He is a great musician with a wide and varied repetoire so there’s something for everyone.  Martyn is a professional, first class entertainer.  Highly recommended.”
Andrew (Wedding, Dumfries)

“Just to say thank you very much for performing at our Wedding. You were amazing as always and everyone’s commented on how good you were. See you soon.”
Laura & Scott (Wedding, Biggar)

“… His vast range of musical talent shone through and was picked up on by the feedback from the guests most of whom had never heard Martyn play before. A special thanks to Martyn also for learning a very special song for our first dance it meant a lot to us. He is so versatile in what he can play that we would not hesitate in recommending him for your special day.  …
Moira & Stephen (Wedding, Carluke)

“… thank you for an AMAZING wedding reception. Everyone has commented on how much fun they had and how great u were.  As you know the dance floor was packed all night, we couldn’t have asked for any more….”
Charlene & Scott (Wedding, Larkhall)

“Thanks so much for an excellent afternoon/evening’s entertainment.  …   We knew to expect a great evening but you exceeded that expectation by a mile!  … you delivered a set that had everyone young and not so young up on the dance floor at some point.  There were even a few folk who refused to believe that this was the same guy who a few hours earlier had been playing Spanish guitar on the terrace while we drank champagne in the glorious sunshine …”
Sarah & Jon (Wedding, West Sussex)

“A massive thank-you to Martyn … When we were speaking to the staff at South Lodge Hotel after the Big Day, they made a point of saying to us that you were the best wedding entertainment they had ever seen! …”
Lisa & Dave (Wedding, Surrey)

“Kris and I would just like to say a big thank-you to Martyn for agreeing to play at our wedding.  …   We had quite a few comments before the wedding as to were we sure that one man on guitar was enough – listening to those same people after the wedding they have done nothing but rave about him and to quote ‘its the best party they’d been to in ages’  …   we couldn’t have asked for a better end to the day!!  We certainly wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to anyone.”
Claire & Kris (Wedding, Sussex)

“Let me say that Paul and I were really impressed by your performance at our Wedding Reception. You were better than we had even hoped for and believe me our expectations were high. We have had so many people compliment you on your playing and singing, I don’t think they thought one man could do all that!”
Rebecca & Paul (Wedding, Sussex)

“For our Wedding, Martyn played the classical guitar for us during the Wedding Breakfast, and it created a fantastic ambience for the meal. He also played at our Evening Reception, and it is wonderful to look back at some great pictures of a dance floor packed with our guests.  The clever thing about his music for a wedding is that it spans the generations so everyone joins in. I know that my father was thrilled to be granted a wish to have his special song played for me at my wedding.  Martyn learned the song especially and kept it as a surprise for me on the day. Martyn also learned ‘our song’ for the First Dance. He performed a fantastic version of the original, it was amazing as all he was given was a CD to listen to. It was such a great personal touch to make the day extra special.”
Andrea & Peter (Wedding, West Sussex)

“Thank you SO much Martyn – you made our special day absolutely perfect! As always, you wooed the audience, dazzled the ladies and you made the bride cry … (in a good way – which isn’t easy to do!) The song you learnt for us for our first dance was absolutely breathtaking. Knowing that it was just for us, was so emotional and you did us proud.”
Tracy & Martin (Wedding, West Sussex)

“Hi Martyn, I wanted to say thank you for playing at our ceremony and also for the drinks reception. You were the perfect choice for our wedding day! It was also nice for Greg and I because as it was raining outside we had our photo’s taken inside and we got to listen and enjoy your music. Thank you for making our day even more special!”
Claire & Greg (Wedding, Glenrothes)

“Hi Martyn, thank you soo much for making our wedding so special. Everyone loved your music and you did a brilliant job!! All the best for the future”
Paddy and Susan Bradley (Wedding, Loch Lomond)

Guitar Lessons and Music Tuition

“My 12 year old son, Lewis, received an award at school this week for ‘Achievement in Music’.  This is a long way from the quiet, shy child who began lessons almost 3 years ago.  This made me very proud and happy and I would like to thank Martyn for bringing him to this stage.  Martyn is a first class guitarist and in Lewis’s words ‘an awesome teacher’ who makes lessons exciting and fun but still managing to get the message across.  He is very patient and understanding and always has a few tricks up his sleeve to make things simpler and once the student is ready he adds on a new challenge.  Both myself and Lewis look forward to his lesson every week with anticipation of learning something new.  I would recommend Martyn to any child or adult who decides they would like to learn to play the guitar.  Thanks again Martyn.”
John (Father of guitar student, Glasgow)

“Thanks for another superb lesson Martyn, I really feel I’ve come on leaps an bounds in the short while I have had with your tuition. You make the lesson so easy to understand and my confidence is such that I just want to practice every spare moment I get. I just can’t wait to pick up the guitar and practice what we have covered. You teach with a huge amount of patience and I always feel relaxed with your guidance”
John (Guitar student, Glasgow)

“I really enjoyed the lesson yesterday. You managed to “get the message” across very well. I find myself thinking of chord and scale formulas without much problem even though my knowledge of notes within each chord and my fretboard knowledge is not yet good enough to apply these directly. But just knowing that I know how and what to do is a place I didn’t think I’d ever be. So a huge thank you and I congratulate you on what are obviously very well structured and executed lessons. Thanks Martyn!”
Dave (Webcam guitar student, Bellshill)

“I have been playing mostly blues guitar for a few years, however, for Christmas, my daughter bought me Spanish guitar lessons with Martyn. This has proved to be the best present I have received in years. I have not had such an intense yet relaxing and enjoyable experience playing guitar as I have had under the friendly, encouraging and PATIENT tutoring by Martyn.”

“Both myself and my family, who are enjoying my new found skill, would like to thank Martyn and I hope to continue to develop under his watchful eye.”
Donald (Guitar student, Glasgow)

“A massive thank you Martyn for all your patience, guidance and most importantly fun guitar lessons! After only 10 months of lessons I have learned more and improved my playing beyond what I had previously in 8 years of playing!! You’re the man!!!”
Ian (Guitar student, Glasgow)

“… I enjoy that the guitar lessons are organized around the kind of music that I like …”
David (Guitar student, East Dunbartonshire)

Private Parties

“I have booked bands and cabaret acts for many years, and you are one, if not THE BEST I have ever heard. Not only are you brilliant on guitar, you can also back it up with a great voice. You were very accommodating as regards times etc, performed like a top professional and have a great personality, which shone through, as you took time between spots to talk to a lot of our friends on the night.  The guests at our Ruby Wedding / Birthday Party were aged from 19 to 83, and the praise from all sections was phenomenal. My niece of 20 even asked why you had not been allowed to play more, whilst other more mature guests could not believe how good you were.  But the last hour, when just about every person danced every number, was the best hour of entertainment I have ever witnessed.  Thanks…..Thanks……Thanks…..”
John and Nancy (Ruby Wedding / Birthday Party, Irvine, Ayrshire)

“Feria Properties International Limited is very proud to be associated with Martyn.  Martyn plays classical Spanish guitar at our Spanish Property Ferias, held regularly at our permanent exhibition suite in Horsham.  Indeed, Martyn is featured in our advertising campaigns on numerous radio stations in the South East.  Our Spanish associates remarked that Martyn’s guitar playing was more authentic than anything they have heard in Spain.  Many of our clients are amazed that we have flown a guitarist all the way over from Spain just for our Feria!”
Feria Properties (Spanish Property Company, England/Spain)

“Thanks Martyn for a truly marvellous evening in which you emulated virtually every major guitar hero from the 60’s to the present.  Everyone was really impressed by your guitar playing skills (and your singing!).”
Richard  (Private event, Glasgow)

“Just a note to thank you for helping make my party a great night. You are never sure how these things will turn out with a mixed crowd but everyone to a person has commented on how great the music was and how much it contributed to making it such an enjoyable night for all.”
Kirk (Birthday party, Seamill, Ayrshire)

Public Gigs

“I’ve just returned from Ye Olde Inn where I watched your set tonight and I have to say I was absolutely blown away by your note-perfect covers of so many numbers … you are indeed a very talented guy!”
Guy (Edinburgh)

Music Transcription and Tabulation

“Martyn, the tab was 1st class, not that I would expect anything less from ‘the Master’. And the CD was top notch!”
Davie (Musician, Ireland)

Original Music

“I listened to your CD yesterday, AND IT MADE ME CRY!  It’s fantastic  …  and the last song ‘Without You’ just finished me off completely!  Martin is gonna LOVE IT!!!  Thank you so much – I’m absolutely chuffed to bits!”
Tracy (Personalised Birthday CD, West Sussex)
