Guitar & Ukulele Lessons
You play along to real rock and pop tunes while learning to read, write and improvise music. Our guitar teachers specialise in making learning fun and engaging for beginners, but also have a great track record for getting their students into Universities to study music performance.
We encourage all of our students to take regular Graded Exams, as it’s a great way to build confidence and really drive home the skills they learn as well as providing a benchmark of their progress. These are however optional, should you choose it’s not for you. Our grades are fully accredited to be equivalent to GCSEs at the lower end all the way up to A-levels and UCAS points for university entry at the higher grade 6 – 8 end.
All of our guitar teachers also teach Mandolin, Ukulele, Bass and Banjo
