Our guitar lessons are taught in small groups of 6-8 pupils. Students initially learn chords and basic melodies, using tablature and staff notation.
Lessons are fun and imaginative and students are taught various techniques used by famous guitarists for both left-hand playing (chord playing, melody playing, slides) and right hand playing (plectrum, finger picking, slap, dynamic control). Lessons also cover performance styles, theory, technical and aural skills. Teachers use modern songs as a basis for their guitar classes but also cover some of the classics.
If students wish, once they have gained certain skills, they can progress on to graded exams. We offer the Rock School Syllabus for guitar exams.
