Why Choose Guitar Lessons?

Guitar lessons are a fantastic idea for several reasons:

  1. Structured Learning:
    Guitar lessons provide a structured approach to learning that helps beginners build a strong foundation and allows more experienced players to refine their skills. With a structured curriculum, students can progress steadily, mastering new techniques and concepts along the way.
  2. Personalised Instruction:
    Every student is unique, with their own learning style, goals, and challenges. Guitar lessons offer personalised instruction tailored to individual needs, ensuring that students receive the support and guidance they need to succeed. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced player looking to take your skills to the next level, a skilled instructor can provide valuable feedback and guidance.

    Learning an instrument can be challenging, and it’s easy to get discouraged or lose motivation along the way. Guitar lessons provide accountability and motivation, keeping students on track and helping them stay focused on their goals. Regular lessons provide a sense of progress and accomplishment, inspiring students to continue practicing and improving their skills.

“My son has been attending since February and he absolutely loves it! He’s so confident with his guitar and could read music after two lessons. Given the current situation, the transition to online lessons has been seamless . There wasn’t any connectivity issues. I think going forward it’ll be a welcome distraction to enable my son to continue learning in this way.”

Guitar FAQ

Do you teach adults as well as children?

Yes! All ages are welcome to attend our lessons. We have adult lessons running throughout the week, from absolutely beginners through to advanced players so don’t worry, we’ll find the perfect class for you.

Do I need to bring along my own instrument?

For new Students, we do have a few Guitars in the Studio which can be used if you’re maybe not sure which size would fit you best, or if you’d prefer to have a few lessons before buying an instrument. But generally we’d say it’s best for you to bring along your own instrument. Plus – you’ll need an instrument at home to practise on!

Do you offer Bass lessons as well as regular Guitar?

Yes! We can offer Acoustic, Bass, Classical and Electric Guitar lessons, so whichever instrument you prefer there’ll be a lesson spot for you!

At which age can my child start Guitar lessons?

We usually would say the youngest age to start would be 7 years old. For any younger children, we’re recommend starting with Ukulele lessons first as they’re much easier for small hands to play!

I’m a left-handed player: can you still teach me?

Yes! We can teach both left- and right-handed Guitar players, don’t worry!

Can you help me restring my Guitar?

Yes, your teacher can show you how to restring your Guitar so you can manage it easily in the future. If you need new strings, we also have supplies within the Studio which you can buy.

Can I sit Guitar exams?

While we encourage students to consider Guitar exams when they reach an appropriate proficiency level, participation is entirely optional. At Sweet Symphony, we offer Guitar exams through three different exam boards: Trinity, Rock & Pop, and LCME. This diverse range allows us to tailor the syllabus to each student’s unique playing style.
