Children will learn to play favorite songs on rhythm guitar. This course will focus on chords, strum patterns and basic song-writing. For children aged 10 through to 12 years of age, who enjoy guitar for accompanying singing, both beginners and those who have had guitar lessons in the past. This course does not include music theory - it is designed to be a more practical course.

Lessons are 45 minutes duration and taught in groups of up to seven students of similar ability. The tutor will assess your child on the first day of term and place your child in a group of similar ability. As we cannot advise the precise session time until your child's ability has been assessed, we require flexibility around session times. Please contact the office on 5219623 if you have any questions or if this is likely to be a challenge for you.

Whilst we would like to accommodate your time-tabling requirements, our primary goal is to promote the effective learning of guitar through the appropriate grouping of students. After we have assessed your child's ability and offered you a lesson at the appropriate time, you will have the option to withdraw immediately from the programme, with a full refund, if this session time does not fit with your family timetable.

If you wish to enrol your child after the course has started, please contact the office. It may not always be possible to place a child in the course once it has started.
