How can I learn to play guitar?

Well, if you’re looking to play guitar, you’ve come to the right place.
Sure, you could buy a learn-to-play guitar book or watch a guitar tuition video on YouTube, but nothing beats the personal connection and the notable gains that come of finding the right guitar teacher for you. We’re certain that this is the place to make that connection.

Are you a beginner, a complete novice guitarist? Or are you an intermediate, someone who can play a bit, someone just coming back to it, a returning student? Perhaps you’re fairly serious, really rather good, a professional musician even, a guitarist seeking inspiration? We know it can be hard to confidently categorise yourself. But don’t worry about it. Book a guitar lesson and all will be revealed.

ALL THE NECESSARY INFORMATION

How much do lessons cost?

The majority of our lessons cost £50 per hour, crazily competitive pricing for the leading teachers in a costly city. That said, some sessions cost less, some more. And amongst the many lessons and packages offered you will find some one-off specials, be it a working trip to Nashville or a song writing weekend in Scotland, and, of course, prices vary.

Where are you based?

London Music Academy teachers can be found all over London. There’s a music teacher, an inspirational and expert music teacher, somewhere near you. In London – the urban myth says – you’re never more than six feet from a rat. Don’t know about that, but with the London Music Academy you’re never more than half a mile from a music teacher… You’ll find the right music teacher right here. Choose your instrument, your level and your tutor. Search by specific parts of London. We have all the variables covered and you don’t have to schlep all the way across town!

You can learn in your own home: many teachers will visit. You can learn at a tutor’s home: even music teachers need somewhere to live. You can learn in a studio: a lot of our teachers have great studios. Or you can learn music somewhere else: an office or a school or wherever’s appropriate.

Can you teach complete beginners?

We love to teach absolute beginners. Musical novices are a joy. The positive progress they will make is thrilling (for teacher and pupil)! Anyone is very welcome, and we move at the pace that is best for each student, the speed they are entirely comfortable with so that their confidence and skill increase together.

Do you teach children?

We teach children and teenagers. It’s never too soon (or too late) for learning to play an instrument or learning to sing. With musical instruments, young people learn exactly as adults do, often faster. Often it’s youngsters who are playing the drums in the style of John Bonham while the adults are still battling the single paradiddle. With singing, children do the same vocal exercises as adults, exercises that are great fun. It’s vital that good singing habits are ingrained early.

What songs will I learn? What music will we play?

You can choose what you want to learn. Your teacher can choose what’s best for you. And typically the happy medium will be somewhere in between.

Do I need anything before I start my first lesson?

Nope. But perhaps there’s a song you want to sing, a tune you want to learn to play. Bring along the relevant music if that’s the case. Bring your instrument too, unless it’s a piano.

Can we arrange group lessons?

Group music lessons are available. Learning music with friends can be very successful. The enthusiasm and momentum generated can be infectious. Soon you’ll be singing together like the Bach Choir, harmonising like The Mamas & the Papas, rocking like The Foo Fighters.

While you can book group music lessons online here, you may have specific numbers and needs you want to discuss, so feel free to get in touch with us.

And if you have, say, school groups, or perhaps a few of you are seeking a very special musical experience, something only we can put together for you, then have a read about the sort of things that are possible and then call us for a chat.

Another opportunity for group learning: businesses. Really, learning music together is a thing. In fact, it’s the thing. Various companies use our teachers to inspire their employees. It’s a team-building thing. It’s an employee well-being thing. It’s a perk-of-the-job thing. The Friday lunchtime massage, the duvet days, the abseiling in the Brecon Beacons – they’re old hat. Music lessons for business groups and companies is where it’s at. The team from accounts will be recreating stadium Rock at the next office party, perhaps…

Do you sell gift vouchers for music lessons?

We sell vouchers, gift certificates, whatever you might like to call them. Vouchers for music lessons are, simply, an amazing present, the gift that keeps on giving (throughout the year, long after Christmas has come and gone). In fact, they’re a gift that lasts a lifetime.

Can I book a block of lessons, a series?

Yes! Commit to a series of lessons. Dedicate yourself to truly getting better. This is the most effective way to learn. Reach your guitar goals or singing ambitions over a fixed period of time with a set of lessons.

A good teacher will, obviously, show students new things to play. Often though they don’t teach how to actually practice what they learn. All London Music Academy teachers want their students to make leaps and bounds and that means taking time to show them the best way to work on their own. A block of lessons, in which practise is taught, and where in between each lesson that practise is carried out, brings about real results, progress at the sort of rate that is pure joy.

The London Music Academy’s lessons are the ideal way to start or continue your journey to becoming the best musician you can be, all in a fun, relaxed and encouraging environment. Everybody’s different and our lessons are all about you.
