Blog

Welcome to my blog

My name is Vicki Workman and I’ve been teaching guitar to beginners and kids for over 15 years.

The purpose of this blog is to give you advice on everything from buying your first guitar to learning & playing tips, both online & offline.

New posts will be uploaded here roughly twice a week.

If you would like more information on the G4 Guitar Method or learning guitar with us, please fill in our contact form or give me a call on 07980 854688.
