During this time I gained a vast amount of hands on experience in woodworking, mechanics, electronics and problem solving.               During my time with Jeremy I was not only able to practice this unique set of skills on the workbench, but I also had the chance to help out with real life projects, such as a kit-car, a bird hide and some of Jeremy’s hand made guitars!              Jeremy is an engaging and informative teacher with a wealth of experience. I use the skills I have learned with Jeremy every day in my current job as a pipe organ builder.
