Can’t read music? No worries!
We welcome everybody from beginner to intermediate and advanced levels.
Everybody’s a beginner at first. We can start from the beginning by teaching you how to hold the guitar, how to play single notes and strum chords, as well as how to read music. After 3 months you’ll be able to play some easy popular songs.
Students who have played before, have been playing on their own for a while, or those who want to try different styles, let us help you get to the next level.
We also welcome students who want to become professional musicians as well as those who want to perfect their skills after years of independent learning!
