Guitar classes at Portobello Music School

Acoustic Guitar

Acoustic guitar classes are offered to children in primary 3 and upward. Classes are taught in small groups and aim to establish musical understanding and good habits from the very beginning. Pupils will be expected to practice their instrument for 10-15 minutes at least four times per week. After studying for one year, children will be encouraged to join one of our guitar ensembles and after two or three years will be offered individual instruction. We recommend that all children learning instruments attend our Junior Choir and to make it more affordable, we offer a reduction off choir fees.

Please contact us for advice about purchasing instruments before term begins.

Meet your teachers Jenny, Eric and Laura and check availability for Saturday.
