Learn the guitar

Are you currently looking for guitar lessons in Essex? Understanding how the guitar works and being able to play like your favourite artist is a relatively easy goal to achieve. Through perseverance and practice you will quickly see the results and within 6-12 months you can be playing in the students band at one of our many shows.

The key to playing the guitar well is understanding from day one how and why chords and scales work together.

Guitar Lessons are ideal for beginners and experienced players and are both taught at our studios in Essex, with some of our teachers able to travel to you if you prefer home tuition in and around the Chelmsford, Essex area.

We work on getting a balanced process happening, where on the one hand you are getting a good progressive understanding for the instrument, fret board harmony etc, and how that applies to music and music theory, including (optional) theory grades through the internationally recognised Trinity College of Music London. Music Theory is encouraged, providing the student is interested and it is part of their individual goal.
