Our online courses are perfect for people who haven’t got the time or opportunity to attend a residential course but who still need the expertise and motivation to improve. We know it’s hard to do this on your own. This is where our guitar courses come in. We often hear comments such as:
Does any of this sound familiar? Our guitar courses are designed to help players break out of this rut.
The great thing is our online courses are interactive so you have the opportunity to take part, ask questions and learn there and then. As part of a group, you’ll learn technique, know-how and repertoire and improve your overall musicianship.
You’ll certainly be inspired by the tutor. Your confidence should increase and you’ll hopefully feel motivated to improve your playing.
We provide you with the correct ‘tools’ and set you off in the right direction but the work is really done by you at home. That’s why for the price of the course, we also include Prep Sheets (where appropriate), detailed lesson PDFs and a comprehensive set of home-practice materials (usually including video snippets of all exercises/sections, looping practice tracks and any supplementary PDFs). Oh yes, and just as importantly, we’re also there to answer any questions following the course.
So much more than trying to learn from a DVD.
How often do they run?
Our online courses run throughout the year – for these courses (usually 1 or 3 lessons each) you simply log in and you can attend:
Just prior to a course, we issue joining instructions that explain how to log-in and where any materials such as lesson PDFs, backing tracks, videos, etc. can be downloaded.
Our online courses use Zoom and so you’ll need the app for your particular device. It’s very straightforward; check with us if you’ve got any questions. Full instructions are sent out as part of the joining instructions.
Joining instructions will consist of a Zoom link to the lesson along with information about where to collect and Prep materials as well the lesson PDFs, videos, backing tracks, etc.
Guitar courses can cater for acoustic, electric and bass guitar players of all standards from beginner to advanced. We’ve tried to answer as many regular questions as possible in our FAQs. This includes defining the playing levels we use to categorise the courses. There is even a guide to help a player decide which course would best suit him/her.

Covid-19 stopped all mini-break courses but with restrictions now easing we are re-starting them.
Residential courses are perfect for those guitarists who want to spend focused time improving their playing. We know it’s hard to do this on your own. This is where our guitar holidays come in. We often hear comments such as:
Does any of this sound familiar? Our guitar courses are designed to help players break out of the rut.
Our guitar holidays are group-based, relaxed, structured teaching events run by experienced professionals at venues up and down the country. Each guitar course has a comprehensive set of notes with follow-up materials after to assist in practice; we’re also always there to answer any questions or ‘light bulb’ clarifications.
They usually run over a weekend from Friday afternoon to Sunday lunch time but we also sometimes offer weekday courses and Jam days. Each course naturally has specific subject matter to cover but we ensure there’s time for jamming and personal performances.
We always get a great bunch of like-minded players coming along often with their spouses or partners on who are very welcome and usually join in the Saturday night performances, ‘bar breaks’, breakfasts and dinners.
We give directions and instructions about what gear to bring, how to get to the venue and what to do when checking in and few things more; it will also reference some relevant Prep Sheets which are available on request – great for specific practice/revision.
