Calling All Guitarists

This two-day course will teach the basics of guitar and help youngsters to master some traditional festive songs as well as providing plenty of opportunities to make new friends.

We will learn three cool Christmas songs and perform them to your parents at the end of the second day.

There will be games and a quiz with prizes too.

This course is for children aged 8-13 who have reached the equivalent level of The Guitarist’s Way Book 1 (yellow book) or higher.

Don’t forget to bring your packed lunch and a pencil!

See you there!
