What We Do

Started a few weeks ago and never want to leave the course. More than a course, it’s a friendly circle where you get to meet lovely people who share their love of music with you. And you get to learn a new skill in a friendly atmosphere with a cool teacher.

Thinking of taking a Guitar Social course? Here’s a video a student made to document her experience.

While we are building a new website-please note that there are multiple pages to do this site-click on the three bars on the top right hand corner of the above picture.

The Guitar bit

We offer ten week Beginners, Improvers, Intermediate and Advanced courses. We also run Improvisation, Composition, Finger Style, Blues, Jazz, Home Recording, Guitar Tech and Classical Workshops along with a range of one off Saturday sessions on a variety of subjects.  At the end of the ten week courses students are provided with the opportunity to perform live in a pub full of friends and peers at one of our infamous Graduation Party’s. The performances are always great fun. They provide a bench mark in our learning whilst doing wonders for personal confidence levels. Click here to see what happened at a recent graduation party.

The Social bit 

Music is a community thing and The Guitar Social has been extra careful to make sure this reflects in our program. 

We use gorgeous spaces across London in Camden, Greenwich, Putney, Clapham and Brick Lane from which to teach.  Sometime after class we go for a drink of water, tea, whiskey, beer or anything else that takes your fancy. Throughout all of the programmes we offer there are many opportunities to go on nights out to see live music and visit some of the City’s most crucial musical landmarks with a social timetable released every month to learners present and past. Social interaction and joint experience is a crucial part of staying motivated and captivated by the Guitar. We have upwards of 150 people that frequently use The Guitar Social as their platform to meet new people.

Recent social events have seen us attend  Music Quizes, our regular documentary movie night, charter a massive wooden boat to sail us around the Turkish islands, catch some live jazz, trawl the bars of Camden on a live musicathon,  head to the hills for our musical retreat in the forest and host multiple informal jam sessions. Click here to see our list of upcoming social events

As a result of The Guitar Socials endeavors there are now many groups of friends across London that meet every night to jam and watch live music together. Here’s a video of some of our adventures https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WW9PjlRcBh4

  1. Sounds really great. I’d like to enrol on the beginners, although I have been learning at home… Think I need to make sure I have the basics in place!

    • Hi Jenny, 23 to be exact! But this covers two hours of tuition, the social events, access to online practice videos, a couple of one to one sessions and the end party. All in all it works out at much less than £10 per hour. If you look on the Book a Place Ask a Question page you can see more details about payments. Which course are you interested in?
