WE CAN HELP YOU PLAY GUITAR THE WAY YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO
The excitement many people initially feel when they pick up their brand new guitar and imagine themselves effortlessly playing their favourite songs can be short-lived once the reality of learning how to play it kicks in! Like any new skill, learning guitar takes time, persistence and dedication. No wonder 90% of new guitarists quit within the first year.
Those who do stick at it can often spend years “learning” guitar but rarely, if ever, get to actually “play” it. This could be through choice (e.g lack of confidence in their playing abilities) or opportunity (they may not have a ‘jam buddy’ or someone to play with outside of their lessons).
Our mission at Croydon Guitar Tuition is to re-dress this balance. We understand the importance of being around other musicians with similar interests to you and that, often more than the lessons themselves, these connections will help you to stay motivated, keep learning and maybe even get out of your comfort zone and end up onstage at one of our performance events!
We structure our guitar lessons, classes and events with the aim of not only teaching you the skills you need but also helping you to apply and adapt these skills into the music you want to play.
My name is Vicki Workman and, here at Croydon Guitar Tuition, my teachers and I have helped many students accomplish their dreams of learning to play the songs they love on guitar. We believe guitar is a sociable instrument and this can best be achieved by learning and playing with others. In fact, many of our students have become friends and gone on to form bands and jam together socially, outside of our classes! We encourage collaboration, not just with other guitar players but also with other musicians. Our students get regular opportunities to perform solo, as part of an ensemble or even as part of a full band at special events run by us and in the wider Croydon music community. After all, this is what playing guitar should be all about!
