This residential course is focused on taking your guitar playing to the next level whilst having a fun and sociable weekend with a group of hobby players.
At a glance
We’ll look at harmony, melody, rhythm, technique and theory/know-how. The course will cover multiple genres and styles with classic songs to add to your repertoire (Blues, Pop, Rock, Folk, Country and maybe even Jazz, Reggae and more). But really the course is about improving playing skills, building confidence and helping you to enjoy playing the guitar.
It’s a busy weekend with over 15 hours of teaching/playing sessions (this excludes the jamming-out at the end of each day!). There are usually lots of opportunities for solo performances for those interested and evening projects for smaller sub-groups. The weekend will simply fly by!
By the end of the course, you should have the tools and understanding to play some cool songs:
You’ll be learning and playing as part of a group of diverse players; our tutor might therefore decide to tweak things to fit a group’s overall playing level and combined aspirations.

It goes without saying, our tutor might need to tweak the contents and/or flow of the course to reflect the overall standard and objectives of the group.
Acoustic, electric and bass players of low-intermediate and above levels.
If you can play most open chords, have started to tackle basic barre chords and can change between them reasonably easily whilst strumming (ideally with a plectrum) then you should be fine.
Similarly, bass players should know a few essential basic arpeggios and be able to attempt to play them over chord changes.
There’s something for everyone in all our courses and the materials really help – see below.

Our weekend courses are teaching/playing guitar-fests but they’re paced to suit the group so they’re as much about having fun and enjoying a sociable time with fellow hobby players.
Playing together as a group is the best, and most enjoyable, way of learning and experiencing music. The courses have limited numbers to ensure the correct tutor-to-group ratio – book early to avoid disappointment.
Make a weekend of it!
