Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach complete beginners?

Absolutely, if you’ve never even touched a guitar before you’re more than welcome! I have taught many beginners over the years. Indeed, here at Guitar Lessons Swansea you are never a beginner for long – we will have you strumming away in no time!

Do you teach children?

Yes! Though from experience I find children younger than 8 tend to struggle with the guitar, so I recommend starting your kids off from 8 and up. 

How long should my lessons be?

This question is very much suited to you and how you learn. I do advise for younger students (age 8-11) that half hour lessons are sometimes better. Usually students age 12 and up are more than capable of engaging for an hour. I often encourage students to try both, book an hour and a half hour lesson and see which feels best. It's your learning at your pace so pick the time slot that feels best to you. 

Where are you located?

I teach all my guitar lessons from Cranes Music Shop, in Saint Davids Shopping Centre (SA1 3LG) in central Swansea. It is a great place to learn to play guitar, with easy access from across the city. Click on the map below to bring up my location on Google Maps!

Can I learn Electric AND Acoustic guitar? 

Of course, you can take your lessons in electric or acoustic, the choice is yours!

Do I need to own a guitar before I start my first lesson?

I do have guitars that you would be welcome to use during lessons, however, I always advise that students bring and use their own. Learning and practising on your own instrument is key to becoming familiar with how your instrument feels.

Do you do vouchers?

I certainly do, they are great for birthdays and other gifts - get in touch for more information!
