Our online courses are perfect for those players who haven’t got the time, or opportunity, to attend a Weekend Residential course or a Day-Only non-residential course. They’re internet-based using tools such as Zoom/other. It’s very easy to join and quality of sound and audio is very good. Onlines sessions still provide the level of teaching to enthuse players 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.Read more
Over-and-above the quality teaching and materials, 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 whole year – approximatel one each week. 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.
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.

Even though our online sessions are detialed an inspirational, learning online requires self-determination and diligence. Our Day-Only courses offer the opportunity for players to play along with, and learn from, a group of like minded players.
The courses offer a great opportunity to socialise with other the other players in the group. Our full Weekend Residential courses take the social aspects to another level; see later.
As its name suggests, it’s a full day of teaching/playing covering most aspects of specific subjects.
The Day-Only courses take place at the same venues that we use for our full Weekend Residential courses around mainland UK. They usually start at 10am and end at 5pm (with lunch and refreshments).
The pace of these courses is steady and they’re structured into logical sessions.
The materials include: lesson PDF(s), backing tracks, photos of all flip charts and audio/video recording made during the course.
We usually have more places available on these Day-Only courses compared to our Weekend Residential courses. Check out our What’s On page; don’t miss out, book early.
Example courses include: Strugglers, Jam Day, Genre Essentials, Bass, etc.
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, lunch 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.
