What types of guitar do we teach?

Learning to play the electric guitar or acoustic guitar is a thrilling journey into the music world. The electric guitar can produce a wide range of sounds and opens up possibilities for exploration and creativity.

Plugging in and experimenting with various effects of pedals can transform simple chords into a symphony of tones. The acoustic guitar offers a more intimate experience, with resonant tones and tactile feedback of the strings as you play.

Acoustic chords can create an earthy, authentic sound that resonates with the soul. Whether you prefer electrifying solos or soulful melodies, both instruments offer unique self-expression and musical discovery paths. Learning guitar is about more than mastering frets and strings; it’s about opening a gateway to a world where emotions are translated into harmonies – making every practice session a step closer to musical proficiency and personal fulfilment.

Explore different styles of guitar playing that best reflect your musical tastes, including:

Jazz Guitar

Immerse yourself in the soulful sounds of jazz, learning chord progressions, improvisation, and harmony from our exceptional jazz guitar instructors.

Appreciate the beauty of classical music by mastering practical music theory, rhythm, and harmony, exploring compositions from various periods.
