Beginners guitar club

This summer, why not join a small group learning the basics of guitar playing at our cool music studio?

There are weekly sessions for children and adults, and it’s a flexible session rather than a formal course. No previous knowledge is required, but you’ll need reasonable finger control.

What you will learn

  • Co-ordinate left and right hands and improve strength
  • Learn some easy chords for electric and acoustic guitar
  • Play and sing songs in a group
  • Know how to use amplifiers and effects for different sounds
  • Understand how electric guitar is used in a rock band

Sessions Available

There are two separate sessions on a Wednesday morning through the summer holidays. All instruments and equipment are provided at Stayfree Music.

10.30 – 11.15am  – Ages 9-14

11.30 – 12.15am – Age 15+


The price is £15 for a 45-minute lesson, with a discount if two or more from the same family are learning together.

Parents/carers can learn alongside their children in either group, and older adult learners are welcome in the 11.30 group.

If demand is high, we may also be able to run a third group or continue the sessions for adults and home-educated children after the summer.
