Play this instrument beautifully with The SoundLab
What are our methods?
First, we assess your current level of playing ability and create a tailored program designed to teach you at the right pace, with the right objectives in mind. The right teacher and the right approach can give you the confidence to get past those first awkward weeks of squeaky notes and have you making beautiful music in no time. A good teacher will teach you the elements of perfect technique from the very beginning and will be able to guide you away from those squeakers.
We’ll help you understand the mechanics of music, especially if your goal is to perform with an orchestra. We’ll also teach you the physical aspects of playing the violin, such as bowing techniques, how to cleanly move between notes and how to add expressive elements such as vibrato to your playing,
We have the industry connections to help you achieve your musical ambitions whether that be whether that be a string quartet, a neo-country band, a symphony orchestra or an avant garde jazz group. We also host an end-of-year concert which gives you a chance to show off your new skills and meet like-minded people.
What do I need to know?
Are you a metalhead or a classical connoisseur? Before you head to your first guitar lesson, we encourage you to think about what genre you’re most interested in playing. We know it’s easier and more enjoyable when we’re helping you learn the songs you love to listen to.
Our Guitar Labs are decked out with Epiphone Les Paul and SG Special electric guitars and Epiphone Dreadnought acoustic guitars; affordable and reliable versions of the trademark Gibson models. We also have left-handed guitars available to learn on. But if you do have your own guitar you’re more than welcome to bring it in and plug it into one of our Orange or Vox amplifiers. Or perhaps you’re looking for something to practise on at home? Visit our store.
