Our guitar lessons are a fun and flexible way to learn one of the most popular instruments in the world. Prized for it's versatility (and portability!) it's hard to imagine the modern musical landscape without the guitar.
We welcome students from the age of seven all the way through to adults. Students are paired by age and ability. Our tutors draw on a wide array of playing and teaching experience to provide top quality tuition.
Whether your musical goals are academic or purely for personal enjoyment, we offer carefully structured progression with the optional milestones of graded examination.
Due to social distancing, guitar classes will now be taught in groups of 2 pupils at a time, the lessons are scheduled throughout the week.
Guitar classes are 40 minutes long or if for any reason your lesson has been scheduled as one to one, the lesson will be 30 minutes.
Lessons run for 11 or 12 weeks in school term time, with a week off for half term.
Payment for the full term needs to be made before the first lesson.
Bass guitar tuition is also available.
