Starter Guitar – Beginner Guitar Lessons in a Group

We’ve had a lot of requests for Beginner Guitar Lessons in a group format, so we’ve tailored a short course to get people started on the guitar in a friendly social atmosphere. It’s four, one hour lessons once a week. We’re starting with a group on Thursday the 1st of September at 6:30pm at our Bowen Hills studio (19 Campbell Street Bowen Hills).

If you don’t have a guitar, we’ve carefully selected a range of beginner instruments that are the best quality for the price. Whether you want to start on electric guitar or acoustic  we’ve got a package to suit your needs.

As teachers, we want to see people with an instrument that sounds good and is easy to play. So we carry only pre-selected lines that we’ve tried ourselves and we believe to be the best quality that we could find for the price.

Always wanted to play guitar? Now’s your chance. Head to our beginner group guitar lessons page to check out the details and get started now.
