4Front School of Guitar students have performed with excellence in a number of school settings. Their rhythmic and chordal skills have enabled them to play a wide range of songs as well as play along with other students and teachers. Kim Wannenburg, HOD Music, St John's School, Mairangi Bay (2002-2007) My Son has enjoyed music immensely under the tutelage of 4Front School of Guitar. The programme inspires, encourages and maintains the interest and therefore makes the art of playing the guitar thoroughly enjoyable. James Southgate Managing Director, Warner Music NZ (1994 – 2002)
