As a mum of one of G4’s junior students, all I can say is – wow!! Vicki, Mike and Jimmy have more than adapted to online teaching – they’ve totally smashed it! G4 has been by far the most valuable and impressive provision for my son during lockdown, fantastic job thank you!!

I think you and your team are doing a fantastic job keeping things going. The guitar community feels even more important as a source of connection in these times.

I am really surprised how well the online classes work. For skills they seem, for me anyway, better than live classes. Mike and Jimmy have really got to grips with the control and engagement and it’s so convenient after a day’s work, really works well. Thanks for keeping me sane for the last 6 weeks.

Pritesh

I think you all are doing an amazing job especially with this online learning. Reeya and I both think Mike is an amazing teacher. Reeya also likes popping into Jimmy’s lessons too, I think it keeps her motivated as both personalities are different. You all are so patient with the kids, definitely in the right… Read more “Pritesh”

You’ve all been doing a great job with the online lessons, they do work well, better than I thought if I’m honest! Thanks for your hard work keeping things going.

Vicki’s lessons are like no music lessons I’ve had before…

Before I started taking lessons I imagined I’d be in a room with a teacher and a metronome, being interrupted every time I made a mistake and being told to always stay in time. Being told to do each lesson and perfect it before moving on to the next one. In a nutshell, I thought… Read more “Vicki’s lessons are like no music lessons I’ve had before…”

The lessons are refreshing, enjoyable and moreover allow you to learn at your own pace…

I undertook piano lessons as a child and was admittedly quite apprehensive that the lessons would be immersed in theory. The lessons are refreshing, enjoyable and moreover allow you to learn at your own pace. As with anything, you are able to reap the benefits of progress through both practice and dedication, however this (for… Read more “The lessons are refreshing, enjoyable and moreover allow you to learn at your own pace…”

Vicki’s lessons have an informal approach and teach various types of music…

Before I started lessons with Vicki, my perception was that they would be quite formal, with the emphasis on reading music and playing a certain style. Vicki’s lessons have an informal approach and teach various types of music. I can now play numerous songs, both by using chord progressions and by picking individual notes. I… Read more “Vicki’s lessons have an informal approach and teach various types of music…”

Dave Plumb

It wasn’t too long before he could play set pieces, which has encouraged him to practise more and therefore improve considerably…

Charlie thought that it would be a long process learning the guitar – something that would take a long time to grasp. Now he says that he has the knowledge to go away, read a piece of music and be able to play it. It wasn’t too long before he could play set pieces, which… Read more “It wasn’t too long before he could play set pieces, which has encouraged him to practise more and therefore improve considerably…”

Justine Curtis, mum of Charlie and Dennis

Vicki is a great teacher and lets you learn at your own pace while pushing you to learn new ways of playing..

When I first enquired about taking lessons, I was looking for a teacher that was dedicated to teaching full time. My biggest worry was about being ripped off and not getting the experience I wanted. I wanted to learn as many songs as possible and become a rock/country star within a couple of months! My… Read more “Vicki is a great teacher and lets you learn at your own pace while pushing you to learn new ways of playing..”

Lisa O’Rourke

She’s also pretty cool and has her own band, she’s not strict and the guitar lessons are fun and not at all like school…

I like learning how to play new tunes every week, or getting better at playing them. The online backing tracks are really good, I find them very helpful when I practise. Vicki is a really good teacher, she helps you with where to place your fingers, she encourages you when you’re stuck on any tunes… Read more “She’s also pretty cool and has her own band, she’s not strict and the guitar lessons are fun and not at all like school…”

Tommy and Anna Jaye

This is Hari’s first time learning a musical instrument and I think he has made a solid start…

This is the first class that Hari has taken outside of his school and so we really did not know what to expect. Hari says he was expecting to learn to read notes right away but says that learning with tabs is a lot easier and so does not want Vicki to change anything. I… Read more “This is Hari’s first time learning a musical instrument and I think he has made a solid start…”

Anu Menon, mother of Hari Nair

I began as a total beginner, and although I still have so much to learn I am confident I can now do a lot of the basics…

I had had one attempt to learn the guitar when I first started secondary school. I was keen to learn but my teacher refused to let me learn left handed. The teacher wasn’t very welcoming or supportive and learning never felt comfortable. In the end I viewed the lessons as a chore and didn’t want… Read more “I began as a total beginner, and although I still have so much to learn I am confident I can now do a lot of the basics…”

Matthew Cock

Having had lessons from Vicki for a year now, I feel I have learned a great deal…

I was introduced to guitar by my music teacher at school and decided I would like to take it up. After self-teaching myself from You Tube and enjoying it, I took the decision to take up proper lessons. My brother took guitar lessons through his secondary school but the quality of them was questionable. Having… Read more “Having had lessons from Vicki for a year now, I feel I have learned a great deal…”

Jordan Ellis

Without Vicki’s teaching I wouldn’t have been able to learn as much if I had taught myself…

I didn’t know a thing about playing the guitar before I took lessons with Vicki. I had thought about teaching myself but I’m glad I took the lessons instead. Without Vicki’s teaching I wouldn’t have been able to learn as much if I had taught myself. I can now play a selection of chords, use… Read more “Without Vicki’s teaching I wouldn’t have been able to learn as much if I had taught myself…”

Naomi Smith

8 months on I am astonished at just how well I have progressed…

I was a complete beginner on guitar, (although I’ve played a clarinet for nearly 20 years), and I wanted the challenge of learning a new, and completely different, instrument. At first I contemplated teaching myself, but didn’t really know where to start, and I am so pleased I decided to take lessons with Vicki. I… Read more “8 months on I am astonished at just how well I have progressed…”

Sarah Witherington

I think that Vicki’s lessons are much better than my school lessons, because she explains things clearly and my playing has improved very much since starting with her…

I have been taking guitar lessons for two years. Before I started playing guitar with Vicki I was learning with another teacher. I was ok and found reading music a little bit hard but Vicki’s music playing was easier. I think that Vicki’s lessons are much better than my school lessons, because she explains things… Read more “I think that Vicki’s lessons are much better than my school lessons, because she explains things clearly and my playing has improved very much since starting with her…”

Francis Hill, 7

Vicki is extremely encouraging and very patient, you can tell that she genuinely cares about the progress of her students…

My son Tymen has been learning guitar for one year. Before this, he kept playing his childminder’s guitar so we bought a smaller one and decided to try lessons. We contacted Vicki, as she was very close to us. A few friends of ours have lessons with another chap but the feedback was that he… Read more “Vicki is extremely encouraging and very patient, you can tell that she genuinely cares about the progress of her students…”

Lyndall Fernie, mother of Tymen, 7

I decided to take lessons with Vicki because she was interested in finding out what I wanted to achieve from taking lessons.

I’ve been playing guitar on and off for about 20 years and taking lessons with Vicki for just over a year. Before lessons with Vicki, playing was fairly limited and with no real structure or direction. I decided to take lessons with Vicki because she was interested in finding out what I wanted to achieve… Read more “I decided to take lessons with Vicki because she was interested in finding out what I wanted to achieve from taking lessons.”

My progress has been amazing; as a complete beginner to be able to play a recognisable tune on my guitar after such a short time is astounding…

The lessons I am receiving with Vicki have far exceeded my expectations. My progress has been amazing; as a complete beginner to be able to play a recognisable tune on my guitar after such a short time is astounding. The lessons with Vicki are always enjoyable, but the biggest support is the amount of backup… Read more “My progress has been amazing; as a complete beginner to be able to play a recognisable tune on my guitar after such a short time is astounding…”

Kate Roden

I would recommend Vicki as a guitar teacher because she has the interests of her students at heart…

Vicki’s programme is steadily enabling me to learn to play the guitar in the most efficient manner and to learn all the techniques necessary to make me a competent guitar player. In the last 6 months I have come a long way, from knowing virtually nothing, to now learning and practising solid techniques that will… Read more “I would recommend Vicki as a guitar teacher because she has the interests of her students at heart…”

My daughter always looks forward to her lessons with Vicki…

My daughter always looks forward to her lessons with Vicki. She finds Vicki to be a fun teacher and always listens to her pupil’s request to play something different. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Vicki to our friends.

We would recommend Vicki to any child wishing to learn or expand on his or hers music experience…

Jamal and Rafick are really enjoying their music lessons with Vicki. Jamal has improved his ukulele playing significantly under Vicki’s tutelage and has become confident in his skills and abilities to read music. Rafick has learnt an enormous amount through Vicki’s patient approach to his guitar playing and she has encouraged him at every opportunity.… Read more “We would recommend Vicki to any child wishing to learn or expand on his or hers music experience…”

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.
