'I've been tutored by Darren over the last 6 months at his jazz improvisation course. He is a very talented musician with an infectious enthusiasm for jazz music. He is also a good communicator and our group of 6 intermediate musicians came on really well culminating in playing a live improvised jazz gig which was a new experience for me! He is good at giving people the confidence to have a go at things that are out of their comfort zone. Would highly recommend him as a teacher!'

'Earlier this year i have been a student in the jazz improvisation classes taught by DARREN LLOYD at BAND ON THE WALL. The classes have been superb in terms of knowledge, application and enjoyment. I had a great time in trying to learn about a difficult genre of music. He has been a great help with his unique approach to teaching jazz.'
