Beginning To Learn Guitar

Starting to learn the guitar can be quite daunting; but don't be put off by the thought of all that you need to learn! Using a syllabus can help break things down in to manageable amounts of information that can be learnt one step at a time. Remember: there's no need to rush when learning to play an instrument because it isn't a race, and you can take it at your own pace. However the more you practice, the easier it gets. It's important to take on board new information in order to learn the required skills and techniques to achieve your guitar-playing goals.

Lessons can either be done 1-on-1/face to face or online - which ever best suits the student. Normal lesson durations are between 30mins to 1 Hour but that’s decided by the student.
