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

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.
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

or groups, meet up with nearby ex-students or
even come back on
more Guitar Weekends!
