If you are looking for a hobby that is great for your well-being, entertaining and undeniably cool then consider learning the guitar. One hour sessions are available for a comprehensive introduction for beginners or for intermediates who are already on the path but have got stuck on something. They are held week-days from 5:30-6:30pm and there is limited availability. Lessons are bespoke to the individual and are designed for serious beginners and intermediates on guitar or bass, who have time to practise every day and want to cover all aspects of technique and theory, whilst learning how to practise effectively, avoid bad habits, nurture creativity and attain the next level of musicianship.
