Frequently Asked Questions
Do you teach complete beginners?
Certainly, I have taught many of beginners - helping them to learn the basics of the guitar before progressing onto more complex aspects of playing. Here a Guitar Lessons Aberdeen you never stay a beginner for long! Even if you have never strummed a guitar before I will teach you everything you need to know to play the guitar music you love.
Do you teach children?
Yes! Though from experience I find children younger than 9 tend to struggle with the guitar, so I recommend starting your kids off from 9 and up. Half hour lessons each week tend suit children best. For more information about lessons for younger learners simply get in touch.
