Skill & Ability

Beginner guitar

Our guitar tutors are specialists at teaching complete beginners as young as 5 and as senior as 70+. Maybe you’ve never held an instrument before, maybe you know a few chords, one or two riffs or the odd bit of a solo. Our guitar lessons will enable you to reach the next level in your playing. 

We have a 100% pass rate preparing and entering students for RGT@LCM electric, acoustic and bass exams preliminary –  grade 2. 

intermediate guitar

We’ve tutored many who’ve revisited guitar/bass after years of not playing due to other commitments, or because they’d hit a brick wall that they just couldn’t overcome. If you are struggling to get those barre chords, or if lead improvising seems like a mystical gift that only a few are born with, our guitar tutors will demystify the route to becoming a strong intermediate player and prepped for moving into the advanced stages.    

We have a 100% pass rate preparing and entering students for RGT@LCM electric, acoustic and bass exams grade 3 – grade 5. 

advanced guitar

Whether you play simply for pleasure or if your musical aspirations are to move on to study music at the further and/or higher education level and to ultimately make a living from your passion, here at Guitar School Northampton, not only have we helped 100s of players to the advance stages, but we have the experience and have helped dozens reach their grade 8 which has helped them find the college and university music courses that they wanted.  

We have a 100% pass rate preparing and entering students for RGT@LCM electric, acoustic and bass exams grade 6 – grade 8.
