Learn at your own rate

In the relaxed environment at Guitar lessons in Edinburgh learn at your own pace and take it as far as you want. Unlike the pressure of group lessons, you can learn one to one at your own tempo, or in groups of two with a friend. The best result is for you to enjoy playing guitar as much as possible, and get as good as you want to be!

Do the style you love

Are you into a particular genre of music? Rock, blues, country, jazz, funk, metal or anything you're into, you can do it here. Is there a guitar style or technique you want help with? Finger style, strumming, or more advanced techniques like sweep picking and string skipping.

Avoid bad habits!

Possibly the most important aspect of getting lessons is avoiding bad habits. Bad habits can really put a cap on your potential, and it can ruin not only the results you're trying to achieve but your enjoyment of playing guitar.
