Personal Statement

I would like to explain the way the G4Guitar Method works to you.
The structured program is based on the 7 essential skills required to become a confident, successful guitarist. That includes skills such as picking, arpeggios, chords
and how to read music.
There are 7 Junior Levels and 5 Senior Levels to work though. Each level has a checklist and once you have checked off everything on the checklist you move on to the
next level. This ensures that you are developing all of the skills at the same time rather than becoming strong in one area and weak in another.
The G4Guitar Method is not about teaching you a handful of songs but the skills to be able to work out how to play whatever you want.
We start with a 5 Week Introduction which is run as private lessons, 30 minutes once a week where we work one on one to develop your technique and understanding of the method.
Once you have completed the Intro we move you into group lessons where you work with students of a similar age and level to yourself.
