What We Offer

Group workshops


Jr Rockstarz is our group learning guitar programme for children aged 6-17.  Just like gymnastics, dance or karate, we believe the best way for children to learn to play an instrument is amongst their peers.  

Young people in our club grow in confidence, self-esteem, and resilience as they pull one another up the path to becoming musicians. We’re much more than ‘guitar lessons’, we’re a club!

1-2-1 lessons

1-2-1 lessons are delivered online by one of our highly experienced online Tutors.  Please don’t be put off by learning online, it’s great way to learn to play guitar and I bet there’s loads of advantages to learning this way that won’t have crossed your mind.
