PROGRAMME INFO

Teens & Adults

Following a version of the G4 Guitar Method designed specifically for teens (12+) and adults, you or your child will be shown everything you need to know to get started on your guitar-playing journey.

We start with 5 x 30 minute private lessons, where we’ll show you how our method works, get you started and help you set up a practice routine at home. You’ll receive all learning materials you’ll need for the Adult course before your first lesson.

We are currently offering the first 5 lessons plus learning materials at a special rate of just £79.

After this, you’ll be ready to start attending our small group classes (max. 5 students) so that you can continue learning alongside other students of a similar age & level. We encourage all students to learn in small groups, as it has been proven to be the most effective way to learn.

  • Designed specifically for teens (12+) & adults
  • Our structured method will give you a sense of progress & accomplishment
  • All our teachers are trained & DBS checked
  • Online support & additional opportunities outside of lessons

 

How does it work

Structured Method – Our Adult course is intended as an introduction to guitar & we believe it to be the quickest & easiest way to learn! Incorporating all the essential skills you will need to get started, you will have the basics down in no time and will soon be playing the songs you love.

Checklists – The Adult course includes checklists to keep you focussed. You’ll know exactly what to work on next so that you can keep progressing without losing sight of your playing goals.

Additional Resources & Opportunities – We provide a range of additional resources, including online song charts, helpful practice & motivational tips & a Facebook group exclusively for our students. We are also available via phone & email in between your lessons so that help is always on hand.

Collaborate & Perform – We aim to make the learning process fun, which will help you stay motivated on your path to guitar greatness. And what could be more fun than the chance to jam with others or show off your new skills at our regular performance events? Learning & playing with others is an important part of any guitar player’s development & we encourage all our students get involved in our community

FAQ’s

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN GUITAR?
This depends on a number of factors. All students begin by taking our 5 Week Intro course, which gives us a chance to introduce our method, establish some basic techniques & set up a practice routine.

At the end of the 5 weeks, most students will have covered the basics & will be well on their way to learning their first song. It is important to understand, however, that like any skill, learning guitar takes time & persistence, which is why regular practice is essential in order to see lasting progress. We recommend around 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week for our Junior students.

The first few months will be spent developing core techniques but, providing the recommended practice is being met, your child should complete our first Junior level within 6-12 months & be able to play a variety of songs, riffs & melodies.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

We start all students on our 5 Week Intro Course, which consists of 5 x 30 minute weekly private lessons. Here, we’ll show you and your child how our method works, get them started and help you set up a practice routine at home. You’ll receive all learning materials your child will need for the Junior course at their first lesson.

We are currently offering the first 5 lessons plus learning materials at a special rate of just £79.

After this, they’ll be ready to start attending our small group classes (max. 5 students) so that they can continue learning alongside other children of a similar age & level. We encourage all students to learn in small groups as it has been proven to be the most effective way to learn.

Group lessons are £79 a month, paid by subscription, and include:
  • Our unique, structured method
  • 4 x weekly half hour lessons
  • Email, telephone & Facebook support
  • FREE attendance at our monthly workshop, exclusively for our students
  • Regular performance opportunities

 

DO YOU DO IN-HOME LESSONS?

We are unable to visit homes, but we do now offer online lessons.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

Our teaching rooms are situated on the 4th floor of The Business Xchange Hub in Lansdowne Road, Croydon. We are centrally located, very close to Wellesley Road tram stop, local bus routes & a short walk from East Croydon station. There are also various parking options nearby. We have a waiting area, free WIFI & tea & coffee making facilities on site.

WHAT TYPE OF GUITAR SHOULD WE BUY?
You’ll need your own guitar to participate in our programme. What type of guitar you buy depends on the type of music you would ultimately like to play. If you’re into acoustic singer-songwriter type stuff, a steel string acoustic guitar would probably be best. For those about to rock, an electric guitar would be the way to go & you can get very reasonably priced starter packs, which include everything you’ll need. This is a personal decision & there is certainly no requirement to start on one kind of instrument before “progressing” to another.

Either way, our best advice is to buy from a local music shop, rather than buy online, so that you know you will be getting a decent instrument appropriate for your budget. Please contact us if you’d like more information.

HOW MUCH SHOULD I PRACTICE?
In order to get results & see some progress, you will need to practice regularly. For teen & adult students, we recommend 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week but the key is consistency and making sure you are practising the right things, in the right way.

We have lots of information to help you set up a practice routine that works for you and make your practice fun & rewarding.

DO YOU TEACH GRADES?
The method we use will introduce you to all the fundamental elements covered in guitar grades & because of the step by step way in which it is laid out, is actually more effective than grades for getting these core skills down.

Once you finish our own method, you’ll have all the skills in place to be able to quickly and easily study for grade exams. Please ask us for more information if this is something you would like to do.

online guitar lessons

During the Covid-19 lockdown, it is important for us to keep our community thriving, especially for our younger students, who will be missing their friends and adapting to new routines.

This is why we have now moved all our lessons fully online.

Our teachers are trained in delivering the G4 Guitar Method and we are finding that many of our students are now MORE engaged and making FASTER progress, as they have more time to focus on their learning and practice.

We are now providing additional classes, online support and content to all our students, for no extra charge.

If you would like more info on how our new online learning programme can help you or your child keep on rockin’ during the lockdown, contact us today.
