As part of a group, you’ll learn technique, know-how and repertoire and improve your overall musicianship.
We aim to play pretty much non-stop on our guitar courses with everyone, regardless of level, being able to participate.
You’ll certainly be inspired by the tutor. Your confidence should increase and you’ll hopefully feel motivated to improve your playing.
