Edinburgh Guitar Lessons for Adults
Guitar Lessons are at Morningside School of Music. Most of the adult learners who attend are complete beginners who haven’t even held a musical instrument before. Despite this, the basics of playing the guitar can be quickly learned. Our clients usually end their first lesson by being able to play a few different songs. If you are looking for Edinburgh guitar lessons, look no further!
Some adults worry that they won’t be able to learn to play the guitar as they have left it late. This fear is quickly dissolved during the first lesson. Adult learners realise that their fingers are abler than they first thought.
Our guitar teachers have inside knowledge of what is required to pass National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher exams. They have taught in secondary schools for many years. We will ensure that your child gets the professional tuition to work in line with SQA music curriculum and move towards gaining high results. We have a fun approach to the necessary coursework that schools hand out during 4th, 5th and 6th year. This, in turn, makes learning more accessible and guitar practice more enjoyable. Most schools follow the syllabi coursework of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, Rockschool or Trinity College London. We offer the very highest level of music tuition available for all three of these options.

Children’s Guitar Tuition
We usually start teaching children age 4+. We have small 1/4 and 1/2 size children’s size guitars that we can let your little one use during the lesson. With younger children, we promote the fun aspects of playing the guitar by teaching music that kids can identify with (nursery rhymes, cartoon themes, pop songs, etc.) At the same time, we also ensure that the correct level of theoretical and practical knowledge is taught, in a gentle and fun way.
The high number of primary school children that have attended for many years is clear evidence of the professional and enjoyable approach we take to educating 4 to 12-year-olds. We see each child as an individual, and we tailor lessons specifically to suit their musical needs and interests. Our teachers have taught children to play the guitar from all over Edinburgh, with many parents are now travelling from much further afield, from places such as Glasgow, Kilmarnock, Fife, the Borders and even Carlisle.

Learning the Guitar
The guitar is one of the more sociable musical instruments. It is also moderately easier to learn in comparison to the piano. Most learners can pick up the basics and even play a few songs within their first lesson. We primarily aim to cover each guitarist’s specific learning goals and styles. We teach popular music, jazz, classical, blues, country and so on. Another area that can be of interest is studying towards formal qualifications.
We offer private one-to-one guitar tuition for all ages, age four upwards. There is a significant number of adult learners attend Morningside School of Music to pick up the guitar. Due to our late 9 o’clock closing time, adults can squeeze in music lessons after working hours.
You can purchase a guitar for as little as £40. It is possible to obtain different sized guitars dependant on the age of the student. Your guitar teacher can recommend the best instrument for your needs.
