Guitar classes take place every Thursday throughout the year. They are available to all children in Year 3, 4, 5 or 6, and are taught in groups of up to four children at a time for half an hour.
The classes start from absolute beginners and, depending on the child's ability (and how much they practise!), could take the children up to a grade 2 or 3 standard by the end of year 6.
The classes themselves guide the children, at a pace suitable to each of them, through various aspects of classical and popular technique, chord playing, reading music, and understanding rhythms and harmony.
Whatever age a child is, it is never too late to start playing guitar. A year or more of tuition will provide a good basis from which to develop their playing, in whatever style they choose, throughout secondary school and beyond.
