Do you know what to practise?

If you are not sure - SCALES.
Look in your folder for scales, major, minor or pentatonic,
and play them 3 times.
Use a different left hand finger for each fret.
Practise up and down strokes with a plectrum or alternate thumb and different right hand fingers.

Remember the details of each lesson are emailed each month to all pupils and you can login to see the records.
We will be re-instating the practise log booklets this term.

; FEB 2024 ;

Every pupil should have a display book folder
to keep their music in and read from at home.
Practising at home aids the reading and the finger techniques that otherwise take more time in weekly lessons.
Good luck everybody!

; JAN 2024 ;

As we settle in to the timetable this term
keep practising the scales and techniques
that will make it easier later in the year.

; NOV 2023 ;

Thanks for the wonderful effort with the techniques everyone,
they are so in the future pupils can still progress themselves.
Keep looking at the tabs and scores on the website
as we will start pratcising the Christmas songs soon!

; SEP 2023 ;

New pupils

New pupils waiting will start either next term or in Spetember, while end of term activities affected the available time for guitar lessons.


Music is spiritual as well as physically pressing the guitar with four fingers.
There will be a theme of composition and improvising this month - no pressure as the prize is a work of art that is the pupil's own.

Parents let your child experiment while I will be diligently keeping their techniques in check for you in the school lessons!

; JANUARY 2023 ;


As you may know (or expect!) we use worksheets and folders to practise from.
All paper provided for the lessons is recycled paper and
45 trees have been planted from this website's webhosting.


Happy New Year, the guitar lessons are due to start the first week back, please let me know if you have any questions.
