Very talented acoustic guitarist. We used Barry for our ceremony and drinks in the garden. We received great comments from our guests on what a nice atmosphere his music helped to create. Barry was very obliging in learning a piece of music we wanted for my walk down the aisle....

Thank you so much Barry, We really appreciated and enjoyed your wonderful guitar playing. Our family felt it helped create the relaxed wedding ceremony atmosphere we required. I will definately recommend you to couples who may require a musician for their wedding. Our warmest regards,

My son has been attending weekly guitar lessons with Barry Bickel since we relocated to Mountain Creek. He was learning guitar prior to our relocation, however after attending lessons with Barry, I have realised just how much he was missing out on, and how more professional and thorough Barry is. My son is now learning how to play his instrument properly and not just copying as his previous teacher had taught him. I would highly recommend Barry as a music teacher to any prospective parents who are looking to enrol their child in music tuition, as he is very professional, approachable and knowledgeable. On occasions we have had to arrange alternate days because of school activities and Barry has been more than obliging in accommodating these changes to routine. I am very happy with the way my son's guitar knowledge, and repertoire, is building and I am delighted that Barry has been able to give him the motivation and encouragement to keep learning.

Hi Barry, Ryan and I were extremely happy with your services both on the day and in the lead up to it. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful talents with us and our guests and being part of our special day.
