● Guitar lessons usually take place during weekday evenings or weekends. Other times are sometimes available too. Please call me on 07776 371 463 for prices and availability.

● 1 to 1 guitar lessons are usually 1 hour long, but group lessons (if you want to learn with a friend) or longer sessions can be arranged.

● Most students benefit from the discipline of having their guitar lessons on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. This keeps your experience of the instrument interesting and also encourages regular practice, which in turn encourages quick progress!
