How do the lessons work?

Students come to the studio and learn at their own pace. As most of your progression will take place at home when practicing between lessons, we like to make sure you have the best possible material to take away. So the music can either be written out as notes on the stave or simplified for those who don’t want to read music. We can also record parts of the lesson and email them to the student at the end of each session so you don’t forget what we did during your time at the studio if the written music doesn’t make sense when you get home.

Lessons are tailor made to each individual students needs. Students can work towards qualifications such as the internationally recognised ‘Rockschool’ exams and assessments for Higher education facilities. Or just learn to play your favourite songs with arrangements designed in the lessons to suit the students ability.

Make your own record as you learn!

As the guitar lessons are taught out of a recording studio, we offer our students the option to take something away from the lessons. You choose  a song which you would like to cover and we will work towards making a recording of that song with the student playing. Typically taking 20 mins at the end of each 1 hour lesson to record a part which we will build upon over the course of the lessons by layering up guitars parts tailor made to the students style and ability. We can also program or record drums and bass as a backing and if you like to sing then we will record the vocals too. Once finished we can burn onto cd and organise artwork if required.
