Learn to play the guitar in the way you want from scratch. Learn to play fingerstyle guitar.

Personalised one to one tuition in an easy informal setting at the best music venue in Manchester.

Open to adults and young people over 16; a great guitar course for beginners and experienced players who want to learn extended fingerstyle techniques.

The beginner course encompasses a core set of universal guitar skills, whilst remaining flexible, to accomodate students’ individual abilities and personal musical tastes..

This course is taught in 5 week ‘blocks’. In the first 5 weeks beginners will learn to play some well known melodies and chord patterns, as well as how to read basic guitar musical notation and some of the fundamentals of technique.

The second 5 weeks (20th June – 18th July) will expand on what has already been learned, introducing some more diverse and interesting tunes and techniques, as well as some elementary theory.

 After 10 weeks, students will have developed the skills and knowledge to develop their guitar playing independently and with confidence, with the option of returning for extra 5 week blocks of more advanced lessons at any time.

This course will be taught by Noel Maher. Noel is a solo acoustic guitarist and teacher. He plays regularly and runs events at local venues throughout the city. He was taught folk styles by his dad, learned styles from Metallica to classical and now specialises in fingerstyle techniques learning from greats such as Andy McKee, Erik Mongrain and Pierre Bensusan.
