Beginners.

£25 per two hour session paid upfront in half or one full payment. See payments below.

Learn how to play chords, melodies, scales and then put all three together to start playing the songs you love.  At the end of the course they’ll be a chance to take your skills in front of a live audience.

In keeping with The Guitar Social way, nearly all people that have taken this course are still meeting, hanging out and most importantly, getting better at guitar.

Here’s a video  account of what a beginners course looks and sounds like.

Improvers.

£25 per two hour session paid upfront in half or one full payment. See payments below.

Although many like to progress onto this from the beginners course some have come straight into this middle tier program without having taken any prior learning with The Guitar Social.

Our improvers sessions give the learners a chance to study songs of their choosing in detail with separate levels of difficulty to tackle when playing and practicing at home. As ever, the focus is on collaborative playing and playing songs with multiple layers and textures.

Key areas of focus include fret board knowledge, barre chords, chord inversions, scales and improvising, developing rhythm skills, finger picking and theory.

These are laid back sessions that give the musician a chance to discover their own playing style and develop confidence in a welcoming environment.

Intermediates.

Sample Resources, Terms, Conditions and Timetable can be found here.

£25 per two hour session paid upfront in half or one full payment. See payments below.

A course that gives the guitarist of some experience the chance to get stuck into some deeper musical ideas and learn how to jam.

There are three principle goals within this course; to be able to contribute in jams; increase practical and theoretical knowledge; develop playing confidence.

Areas of study cover contributing lead or rhythm in jams, understanding scales and arrpeggios, increasing chord knowledge, improving technique, playing with musical textures, developing aural skills, exploring modes and intensifying practice time.

This course has recived particularly strong feedback from people that feel their playing has stagnated, are looking for an excuse to pick up the guitar more often or are struggling to move up a level after a mid term period of learning.

Advanced.

This one of a kind program is for all you players that have grasped barre chords, cracked scales and want to know where to head next. We concentrate on three key areas that time has taught us are often a stumbling block for Musicians just like you.

Sample Resources, Terms, Conditions and Timetable can be found here. 

Joy of the Jam.

Our fabulous joy of the Jam sessions are for people of all levels and give the budding musican a chance to play songs in multiple textures.

The sessions come in five week blocks. Perfect for the Rock Star in waiting. To see when our next Joy of the Jam program is taking place, please click here.
