Guitar Learning Resources

A few articles that I hope will be helpful for you or your child to improve their guitar playing. Our focus is teaching students in person in our guitar school. For more in depth instruction and to get real life feedback to help you guitar playing. I would always recommend seeing finding a guitar teacher in person. 

If you would like more advice about learning the guitar and you are based in London, get in touch with us via the button at the bottom of this page. We offer a free introductory guitar lesson for students  for both adults and children who are keen to improve their guitar playing. 

If you are not based in London and still interested to learn, get in touch! We are currently running online lessons due to "You know what" - so we might still be the right fit for you.

This guide is NOT full of jargon and fancy terms for music. This is designed for you if you are learning guitar and would like help on understanding music.
