Guitar players ultimate holiday break


We have been delivering fully residential weekend tuition courses since 1994 for beginners to semi-pros. We hold them at superb country venues in The Cotswolds,  Cumbria and Stirlingshire and use top professional tutors. The courses are, first and foremost, teaching weekends but we have lots of fun 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.

Our courses range from generic ones such as Beginners, Strugglers, Improvers to various levels of Country, Rock, Blues, Jazz, Folk, Acoustic, Rhythm, Maintenance, Creativity, Gear with many more. If you youíre not sure which is best then contact us but our back-to-basics and entry level courses (Strugglers and Improvers are a sensible and safe starting point).

By the end of a Weekend our aim is to not only to have imparted a lot of knowledge and technique but to inspire everyone 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!

Our Weekends are special; donít take our word for it, check out our studentsí testimonials. The gallery will also give you a feel for what happens but the best way is to simply pop in whilst a course is on and have a chat to students and the tutor - call ahead first though as a Weekend is very busy.

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 all-inclusive prices can cover every possible option from fully residential to non-residential to sharing with a partner/spouse.

If youíre asking yourself if youíre good enough or confident enough - donít 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 Ė it's sufficient for now to simply say that they cover the key areas of melody, harmony, rhythm, theory, practice and attitude in abundance.
