Beginner Guitar Lessons

Beginner guitar lessons will include skills such as learning basic chords and rhythms so you can start to play the songs that you love straight away. Beginner students will be taught a variety of foundational skills that they will keep for a lifetime. Students can either play for fun or progress by taking an accredited exam with RSL awards or Trinity Rock and pop.

Intermediate / Advanced Guitar Lessons

So you’ve learned the basics but where do you go from here? Students at this level usually progress to performing on stage, joining one of our rock bands, or working towards an exam. Many students however are just eager to keep improving. Students can progress through learning and understanding various techniques and material from fingerpicking, slide guitar and learning to solo. Our tutors are experts, and if exams are your thing, we will help you get the right syllabus that suits you. Many students aim to take an exam and we structure lessons to support this, teaching across all of the main exam boards and the various syllabuses on offer.

Fantastic place to go and learn whatever type of musical instrument you are into. I started learning guitar in group lessons then I started doing individual lessons with Stuart. Absolutely brilliant teacher with a lot of patience and he gives helpful tips. I never picked up a guitar before I started but I've come on leaps and bounds. Highly recommended
