Our Guitar Sessions cover a variety of styles and techniques that have shaped modern music from Rock, Pop, Blues, Folk etc. We lead our session on Taylor acoustic guitars and Fender electric guitar and interchange between them every week.
In our beginner classes, we cover everything from square one! This includes learning the basics, reading notation and TAB, playing open chords, basic riffs and simple strumming patterns. As our classes progress we begin introducing more complexity with lead guitar work, finger-picking, scales, music theory and more. For more intermediate level players, we dive a little deeper. Covering melodic and syncopated phrasing, slides, hammer-ons & pull-offs, right and left-hand tapping, intermediate looping techniques etc.
To give these concepts & techniques a sense of real application, we learn popular songs that famously use these techniques in each class, ending every class with a group jam that puts what we learnt into practice. We focus on the one song & set of techniques for each week per class and then move on to a new skill the following week. So not only will you be learning the skills you need to improve, but you’ll be learning some of your favourite songs along the way!
