Beginner Guitar Spring 2016 Group

08 January – 18 March / 18:30 – 20:30 / More Info / Enrol

Brighter Sound presents two group guitar courses with Noel Maher at Band on the Wall.

Always thought about learning guitar but not sure if it’s for you? Put off by expensive lessons fees? These five week beginner guitar courses are designed to give you an affordable and accessible ‘taster’ of the wonderful world of the guitar.

The two groups courses are:

  • Beginners: for those who are completely new to the guitar
  • Beginners Continued: for those who have already taken the beginners course or those who have some experience and want to brush-up their guitar skills 
  • Both guitar groups are sociable, accessible and a great way into music.

    Beginners – In five one hour group sessions our experienced and supportive guitar tutor Noel Maher will take you through some of the basics of popular guitar, and show you that learning to play can be a fun and rewarding experience! Starting from the ground up, this course will cover everything you need to start playing tunes within just a week or two including:

  • How the guitar works.
  • Simple melodies and fingering.
  • How to read guitar TAB (guitar-specific music notation)
  • Basics of chords and strumming.

  • Beginners Continued – An extension of the beginners course to consolidate and enhance your skills and repertoire.

    This term we are offering two blocks of five weeks. Block 1 from 8 Jan – 5 Feb. Block 2 from 12 Feb – 18 Mar.

    Don’t own a guitar yet? Don’t worry – Brighter Sound can provide guitars for use during lessons. Please let us know if you need to borrow one for the lesson.
