  • Funk Jam at Band Workshop Trading solos students from age 13 onwards Funk Jam at Band Workshop Trading solos students from age 13 onwards

    It’s so easy to get into a rut as a guitar player – no matter what style you play or choose to play -sometimes if you stay purely within that style the danger is that you end up knowing more and more about less and less – and this is why it can be good to experience different styles – different ways of approaching playing – so yes You may still have a main interest in playing rock, blues, metal or indie styles – and yet exploring other styles such as Funk which is what happened at the sunday jam can;t help but add another dimension to your playing and deepen your intimate understanding – as You’ll see in the [...]

  • Aged 70 Beginner John’s first Workshop – At 72 was His First Student Show Aged 70 Beginner John’s first Workshop – At 72 was His First Student Show

    Coming up to Mid January – and this is usually the time when You might have a little doubt about those new years resolutions – seemed so confident around Jan 1st – and yet now it might seem a little distant – its all too easy to lack faith if You’re not certain that You are doing the right things, at the right time in the right order for something like learning Guitar – all too easy to get caught up in the idea that perhaps You’re too old – or maybe should have started 20 years earlier. And yet take Student John – who You will see in a moment playing his first workshop aged 70, and making his [...]

  • A Look back at some of the students from our shows and workshops past A Look back at some of the students from our shows and workshops past

    At this festive time of year, its great to look back and reflect on our student successes, and achievements from our past studnet shows and also workshop events – while recognising that ofcourse not everyone wants to play or participate in these things, prefering to stay with the Special Immersion lessons that make what You are about to see possible. A Huge thank you for all the students, for those that did take part in the special student shows, workshop events and also the many helpers that have made and continue to make these events both magical and memorable. A Very Christmas and Here’s to Making 2014 YOUR Year of the Guitar … The time when YOU are inspired to [...]

  • A Little Funk at Student Show with Long Train Running

    And here’s students Dan and Alistair stretching out on Guitar with 1970s Doobie Brothers Classic Long Train Running in front of family and friends at the student show. Ofcourse not everyone goes on to play at the student shows – many are happy to just play at the special workshop events and also in the very immersion lessons which allow students to not only gain the competence, but also the confidence to go that one extra step and perform on stage should they want to – as You’re about to see as You click and watch the video above.
