"After planning to learn guitar for 8 years I decided the time had come to get some lessons.
Beginners Guitar - Acoustic or Electric
All our tutors specialize in beginners tuition. The guitar is a great instrument for a beginning musician as in quite a short time you can learn enough to play along with a huge number of songs.
We have taught many, many students completely from scratch - people of all ages, with all sorts of different musical backgrounds, many (or most) of which had no prior musical knowledge or experience.
We aim to teach you the basics, then move on to music YOU like as quick as possible. If you want to work from books we can do this, but we will always provide you with music that you feel excited to pick up and play at home.

What are lessons like?
Many students wonder what having lessons will be like - for many people guitar is the first instrument they've ever learned. For others, they may have prior experience learning an instrument that they didn't enjoy - for example unwanted instrumental lessons at school, possibly with a stern/ strict tutor, studying music they didn't like. Here's a few pointers about what to expect from guitar lessons with me:
1 to 1 Tuition
This is the traditional way of teaching guitar and the benefits are that you get a lot of personal and targeted feedback, as well as being able to choose exactly what you want to play. If you have specific personal aims and goals, or questions that you feel you need answered and addressed in a personal way, then 1 to 1 Tuition is the best way.
Double / Triple Lessons
Guitarists who have been playing for a while and are interested in playing with others may prefer this option. The double/ triple lesson format is good fun and for some students it will be a better option than 1 to 1 tuition as it more often accelerates your learning. Playing with other people is a great feeling and it allows you to practice more aspects of musicality than solo playing and practice.
