Playing the guitar is a relaxing and enjoyable past-time. Singing with your guitar is even more fun. I can help you with both.
I don’t promise to be the greatest guitarist in the world, but I do have plenty of experience in teaching beginners, both on a one-to-one basis, in small groups at schools, and even whole classes of 30 children!
I will introduce you to your guitar and help you to tune it. I will tell you about the different strings, how to play tunes and how to read music. This is the ‘classical’ part of the lesson.
I will also introduce you to playing chords (collections of notes played together). We will look at the simpler chords first, and then try to sing along with them. It is amazing how many songs you can sing by just knowing two or three of the most popular chords. This is the ‘folk’ part of the lesson.
Your part of the deal is to promise to play your guitar at least twice a day. This may sound demanding, but to learn a new skill, you have to work at it!
I think anyone from age 5 to 105 can learn to play the guitar. If you are interested, please contact me on the form on the front of the website.
Lessons last for 30 minutes and cost £15 each. They take place in Hillmorton, Rugby at my home.
