"For as long as I can remember I wanted to play guitar. I was talkin' to my brother one day about music and he told me that Mike Varden had started a school of music in Ennis. I plucked up the courage to go see him. I joined a class of 7 beginners for acoustic guitar. From the start I loved it. Mike's easy teaching style and encouragement kept me going back every week.   Within a month, 4 classes, I was playin' and singing some of my favourite songs. Mike was all the time helping me and encouraging me on to do more and pretty soon I had learned enough to sit down with other musicians and play along. Thanks to Mike, I now am gigging and I have even recorded my own song and had it played on radio. If any of you are wishing you could play guitar and sing some of your favourite songs, don't hesitate, contact Mike, I guarantee, you will not regret it. It was one the best decisions I ever made. You are welcome everywhere if you have music and who knows you might even make a few bob off it. Don't put it off any longer. If Mike Varden can teach me guitar, he can teach you."

"I had been teaching myself guitar for years but really wasn’t progressing and mostly just played the same stuff over and over. I decided to get some lessons and contacted Mike and it was the best decision I ever made for my playing. I did a course of lessons with Mike and my playing improved exponentially. He quickly established my level and where I was at and listened to what I wanted to learn. He has a huge knowledge on all things guitar and playing styles and has a very easy going teaching style and he very quickly explained to me how the fretboard works and  how to understand scales and chord progressions in any key. My playing took off and the course I did with Mike without doubt saved me years of trying to figure things out by myself and still stands to me to this day. Jamming sessions and playing with other musicians and students in Mike’s school was also a huge benefit. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mike to anyone interested in learning guitar or for anyone who already plays but has hit a wall and wants to improve."

I found the course so professionally run and with a great sense of fun and it was very easy going …. I was delighted with my start as i never even held a guitar before my class …. Mike is a great teacher and a great musician and had a great teaching style within the classroom setting… he has a great ability to make you feel at ease and not silly …me being an adult trying to learn the guitar ….I really enjoyed my beginners course with Mike.
