Guitar players ultimate holiday break


We have been running fully residential weekend tuition courses since 1994 for beginners to semi-pros covering Blues to Jazz, Rock to Folk, Country to Rhythm, Django to ... well, you get the idea!

We use fantastic venues in The Cotswolds, Wiltshire, Cumbria and Stirlingshire and employ top professional tutors. The courses are, first and foremost, group teaching weekends but fun is at the heart of everything with jamming sessions which often run late into the early hours!

These courses make for truly unique gifts for hobbyists and fanatics alike. Vouchers are always available if you're not sure which one to book.

If you’re not sure which is best then contact us but our back-to-basics and entry level courses (Strugglers and Improvers are  sensible and safe starting points). Just ask for a Course Overview if you need more information on any of the courses.

There's a tremendous amount of group playing whilst we focus on technique, practical theory, repertoire and performance. By the end of a Weekend we aim to have imparted a lot of knowledge but also to have increased confidence and inspired the students to carry on improving - many go on to join clubs or groups, meet up with nearby ex-students or even come back on more Guitar Weekends (check out our students’ testimonials).

A Weekend covers lots of stuff; the hard work is made easier because we run it in a structured but relaxed and supportive way using a blend of some theory, lots of practice and the use of copious amounts of songs. Our prices are all-inclusive with options covering fully residential to non-residential to sharing with a partner/spouse.

If you’re asking yourself if you’re good enough or confident enough - don’t worry! Our tutors are extremely adept at pushing everyone without making them feel uncomfortable.

Note that bass guitars are especially welcome on any of our courses.

Course content and our philosophy and approach to running our Weekends is a long story – it's sufficient for now to simply say that they cover the key areas of melody, harmony, rhythm, theory, practice and attitude in abundance.
