Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach complete beginners?

Yes, I have taught many beginner students over the years. Here a Guitar Lessons Bolton you never stay a beginner for long, I will have you playing along to your favourite songs in no time.

Do you teach children?

Yes, though from experience I find children younger than 5 tend to struggle with the guitar, so I recommend starting your kids off from 5 and up.

Half hour lessons each week tend suit children under the ages of 12 best. Parents are more than welcome to join us for the guitar lesson if you wish to sit in. I also hold an Enhanced DBS for your peace of mind, as well as having many years teaching experience working in local schools as a music teacher.

Where are you based?

I teach my guitar lessons from a dedicated teaching space located on Thomasson Court, BL1 4QQ in central Bolton. You can see a rough map below of where I am based, click on the map to bring up this location on Google Maps. My full teaching address will be provided upon you booking your first lesson.

Do you teach electric, acoustic and classical guitar?

Yes, you can take your lessons in all three, the choice is yours.

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

It is certainly worth getting your hands on a guitar to help you practise in between our lessons. You don't have to have it from lesson one but you will need it as soon as possible after that!

What happens if I have to cancel a lesson?

That is no problem at all, simply text or call me a few days before and I would be more than happy to re-arrange our guitar lesson. Please note the Guitar Lessons Bolton operates a 48-hour cancellation policy, whereby if you cancel within 48 hours of your lesson you will be charged the full price of the lesson.

Do I have to attend guitar lessons every week?

Not at all, we can have lessons whenever you want. Most of my students have a guitar lesson once a week, with a few having lessons once a fortnight or even twice a week. It is really up to you.

Where can I buy my first guitar?

We have several great guitar shops in Bolton that you can check out. You can read more about this in an article here: Guitar Shops in Bolton. In addition, there are so many deals to be found online nowadays. I would be happy to advise if you need help to choose a good first guitar. Simply get in touch.
