If you want to learn guitar, you need to have a solid, reachable plan.

What Does This Mean?

It means you need a set of realistic action steps that will help you reach your goal of being able to play the guitar with accuracy and fluency. When you break practise time down into manageable chunks that are geared towards the type of player you want to be, everything becomes much easier. This will be reflected in your weekly practice routine.
 

Whether you're trying to strum chords to your favourite songs in your bedroom, sing a few songs at your local open mic night or want to play acoustic guitar like Ed Sheeran, there's a slow frustrating route and a fast rewarding route to success.

 

Of course, it's easy to go down the YouTube rabbit hole but trying to get to where you really want to be this way could take a long time. I can teach you how to play in a way that maximises learning progress and gets you there in the shortest time possible.

Five Benefits of Playing Guitar

    1.

Playing the guitar engages motor, visual and auditory centres of the brain; a real chemical workout that keeps those neurons firing and intelligence developing.

Who These Lessons Are Not For

Some of these points may sound harsh but honesty is important in the relationship between teacher and student. Learning the guitar isn't something that you can do overnight. If it was, the chances are you wouldn't be reading this page right now. There is a very specific mindset you need to adopt if you want to reach your goals and succeed in playing your favourite songs and there are very specific approaches that will get you there quickly. Here are some reasons you might not want to take lessons:

It's not the right time

If you're at a stage in life where you simply feel the time isn't right, then wait until it is before you decide to commit. That way, when you finally go ahead with it, you'll feel all the more ready.

You don't have the time

For beginner players, I recommend 15 minutes practice per day, four to five times per week plus your weekly lesson. If this time isn't available to you then you'd be better off saving your money until you can confidently put that regular time aside to become the guitarist you've always dreamed of!

The cost is an issue

Here's a difficult truth for some but I want to be as upfront as possible. Good quality guitar lessons don't come cheap. However, you're much better off paying a good teacher more money to fix a problem and ease your frustration so that you can feel motivated to continue on your guitar journey,

Who These Lessons Are For

Here are some of the reasons you might be ready for lessons

You have a passion for music

If you find yourself passionate, exited and motivated by guitar playing, then these lessons are absolutely for you! That passion combined with good direction and a manageable practice routine will help you reach your guitar goals.

You want high quality lessons

If you want high quality guitar lessons and you have the budget, then these lessons are for you. Having a reliable teacher who provides you with the tools to succeed will ensure you go from frustration to jubilation!

You're highly motivated

If you're highly motivated and want to get started right away, these lessons are what you're looking for. We can work together to crush your guitar goals!

What CGA Students Are Saying

“My guitar playing, improvisation, melody making, music theory knowledge and confidence have increased tenfold after these tutorials and lessons. After 20 years of being stuck playing Wonderwall on guitar, the fretboard has opened up for me, and I now instead create my own riffs and melodies” - Ole Alfheim (Online Student)

"Aaron has the class prepared before hand and is super patient. He pays a lot of attention to my hand movements and has an extra camera so you can watch his, which is really cool! We always have fun and he encourages you to keep the good work 🙂" - Angélica Tapia (Online Student)

"Aaron is a fantastic player and I would recommend Aaron as a great teacher with so much knowledge, its so refreshing to have someone explain the technicalities of the guitar 🎸 I'm loving it !!! Thanks Aaron 😊" Tim Hocking (Bath, UK)

Tim Carrington Guitar Academy
Tim Watts Carrington Guitar Academy Best Guitar Lessons in Bath, UK

"I wanted to get better at playing electric guitar for covers and improvisation, with a bit more sophistication, in a village band. Aaron has introduced just the right amount of relevant music theory and technique to complement what I've picked up over the years. I'm now playing basic but passable (to me) blues solos over a better understanding of the theory, with more confidence up the frets". - Tim Watts (Bath, UK)

"I found Aaron to be knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and ever patient as a music teacher. In a few sessions he enabled me to understand concepts I hadn't previously grasped in nearly two decades of guitar playing, which strengthened my ability to come up with my own tunes" - Daniel Absolon (Bath, UK)

"Rory had been having lessons but was very uninspired and not feeling like he was making any progress. Then we were introduced to Aaron and how things changed! His passion is back and every week he is learning something new. Online lessons are well structured and planned, as is the “homework” each week. Aaron is very experienced, knowledgeable and personable, and we would highly recommend him". - Laura Darlaston (Parent/Online Student)
