Professional lessons

GCH Guitar Academy guitar lessons have been developed over more than fifteen years, with guitar students. Students were paying upwards of £1000 or $1800 to study the material contained in just unit one of the course.

Many courses available on the internet are simply collections of information and tunes with no structure, or guitar players trying to share their knowledge with no teaching experience.

This course is properly structured into months and weeks so you can follow the lessons in a logical sequence. This way your understanding of the guitar and your guitar playing skills are built up at a sensible and realistic pace.

Even the tunes have been chosen specifically for the techniques they demonstrate, to aid the learning process
