WE PROVIDE SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST GUITAR LESSONS
One of the most rewarding results of our guitar lessons is the feeling of confidence kids develop as they learn something new, whether it’s mastering a new chord or learning how to play their favourite song.
Attending our classes gives your child the opportunity to meet other kids of a similar age who share their interest in music. They’ll develop new friendships and improve their social skills through interacting with their teacher and the others in their group.
Learning the guitar involves mastering new skills, memorising new pieces of information, and dedicating time to practice each week. Practicing regularly will develop your child’s self-discipline, and they’ll soon be enjoying the results of their efforts.
A Skill For Life
Attending our classes will give your child the skills they need to enjoy playing guitar for the rest of their lives. Learning guitar will also make it easier for them to learn any other instruments they might be interested in.

ABOUT THE CLASSES
At First Strings we focus exclusively on teaching children. Our classes have been specially designed for kids, and make the process of learning guitar as fun and enjoyable as possible. Our lessons are accessible to students of any level of musical experience, and there is no requirement for your child to learn classical musical notation. Our approach is completely different to traditional music lessons, with an emphasis on learning fun and recognisable music from day one. The context of familiar and current tunes makes music lessons more fun and relatable to kids, and this allows them to focus on enjoying their playing and sounding great as soon as possible.
