GUITAR LESSONS

Kids

Whether it is guitar, bass, or ukulele, kids’ lessons are always about fun and learning through play. We will begin by learning all the parts of the guitar, string names, and fret numbers, and instantly begin to learn how to play the most well-known, simple kids’ songs – and of course Smoke on the Water!

For young children who are complete beginners, we use a super fun book called, ‘Rockadile’, which takes us through all the fundamentals of guitar, bass, or ukulele by way of engaging activities and tasks. We have had great results with this book, as it is designed to set the students up with all the relevant knowledge to get playing real songs quickly.
Children’s lessons should never be strict. At this stage it is all about learning to love the instrument and about music in general, until the student reaches a competent level of musical ability to specialise at a particular level or in a particular style or genre.

Teens and Adults

These lessons are still a lot of fun!

However they are run with slightly more focus on progression, in any genre you choose. From blues, jazz, funk, rock, metal, acoustic, Scottish Trad, Aaron has a plethora of material designed to enhance your playing in a way that suits exactly where they want to go with their instrument and music as whole. These lessons will be theory-based from pretty early on in your journey; because no matter what anyone says, understanding your instrument as much as possible is paramount to your success. Aaron’s ethos is ‘everything all the time’.

Testimonial

My daughter has enjoyed Hanah’s lessons since she started. Hanah‘s encouragement gave her motivation. In spite of the COVID-19 situation, Hanah’s lessons were never stopped. She quickly switched to online lesson from in-person, then introduced the individual log on page on the website. Since the first lockdown, school and social activities were different from before. Although Hanah’s lessons are online, these are regular events and give us some sort of normality, which we appreciate. Hanah is very creative, enthusiastic and well organised which we like!
