What Styles of Guitar Can You Teach?

Our guitar teachers can teach any style of guitar you or your child wishes to learn. Obviously in the early stages style plays a smaller role but as they get more proficient children often have preferred styles. Our teacher can cover blues and R&B, pop, folk and even rock. Part of the joy in learning the guitar is playing music you enjoy and this also helps with long term commitment to playing. By engaging the child in songs they know and love the their playing can improve far faster than playing songs they don’t know.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I know when my child is old enough to learn guitar?

We recommend teaching children guitar from 7 years upwards.  Individual lessons will be tailored to suit each individual child. We welcome beginners to advanced players.  Whether you would like help writing songs, strumming chords or playing classical guitar, we can cater for all needs. 

Pair and group guitar lessons


Learning as a group can be lots of fun! Group lessons will take into account everybody’s interests and abilities.  We recommend small groups of four children maximum so that your child can get the best out of the 30 minutes contact time.

How do I know which music books and guitar to buy?

Our guitar teachers are on hand to answer any questions regarding suitable guitars once you have booked with us. They will recommend suitable books and resources when your child starts his / her lessons. 

How do the lessons work?

The first lesson is very much about the teacher getting to know the pupil and understanding what level they are at and what kind of lesson will suit them best. The teacher will then choose the best learning materials for each child and the lesson format going forward. The focus is always on enjoyment - all Discover & Be music and academic lessons are about learning in a fun, positive and constructive environment.
