Guitar

With the option of lessons in Acoustic, Electric, Classical, or Bass Guitar – there’s something for every type of aspiring guitarist!

The elements covered in our lessons include:

  • Practical;
  • Technical Work;
  • Aural; and
  • Music Theory

Once students have reached a comfortable level of playing, they are encouraged to take part in the Urban Beat Concert, where they will gain valuable performance experience, play along with other musicians, and make musical memories that will last a lifetime! (This is NOT compulsory)

He listens to and plays everything from classical fingerstyle to heavy metal.
