Learning the electric guitar is very beneficial for your hand-eye-ear coordination, and is a very good way to develop your listening skills, both musically and within a social context. The guitar provides a great platform to master Rhythm, Melody and Harmony – three backbone elements of a solid music education.
Playing the guitar breeds attention to detail and teaches a specific skill set for performing small, delicate movements of both hands. Because of this, guitarists have excellent dexterity and are able to apply this outside of music in learning other tasks.
Finally but not least importantly, learning to play an instrument teaches patience and discipline, the fun way… It takes hours of patient practice to become a rock legend, but don’t worry it’s worth it! Nothing boosts confidence (or looks cooler!) than grabbing your favourite ‘Axe’ and shredding out a solo on stage!
There is no need for the student to have a guitar in place as we provide all the tools needed – we bring along guitars (both left and right handed), an amp and leads to each lesson, all you need to to is plug in, play, learn and of course – have fun!
We are very happy to be working alongside the Cornwall Music Education Hub to provide subsidised lessons for children that meet certain criteria. These are:
You will receive a termly report on your child’s progress and we will aim to have an assembly booked once a year for your child to demonstrate their new abilities!
