Thank you team! More...

The school offers much more than guitar lessons. The team incorporates concepts of how to learn optimally into their classes. You are provided with most efficient ways to learn, practice or perform a song/routine/concept, distilling their many years of playing the guitar into tips ready to be incorporated into your practice. These can help surmount what appeared to me (a complete beginner) as somewhat impossible. The tutors also take an active interest in your learning. At the start and every so often, they will ask you what your goals are and what you'd like to get out from the lessons. Not only will they offer the classes orientated towards your goals, the contents of classes will be adapted so to push your guitar-playing skills ever closer to your ambitions. In addition, there are focused workshops to help tackle different issues. Most recently, it was on mastery of the fretboard. Before that, it was on how on the most common chord progressions. I have learnt more in my 9 months at the school than I had in the 7 years prior to starting at the school. More...

Joining the school was one of the best decisions I’ve made since moving to London! My confidence is hugely improved since joining and I’m constantly making progress with my technique and approach to practicing. The lessons are well structured and challenging, I always look forward to going. The opportunity to jam with other students at the school is a great bonus and it definitely helps train your ear.

What a great place for me as an adult beginner! The programme has really helped me develop my fundamentals and it is very helpful to have a structure provided for practising and setting goals. I would definitely suggest joining over doing private lessons, as they have a great community of people and there are plenty of social events, open mic nights and other great activities. The teaching staff are well versed across all music styles and guitar types which is helpful when choosing the type of music you want to learn how to play. Looking forward to many years of learning here! More...

I have been at the school for around 14months now and I have no hesitation in recommending them whether you are a beginner or a seasoned player, I myself have been playing bass and guitar for over 30 years, playing hundreds of gigs and yet I have learned more in the last year that’s i have in the previous 30 years! Darryl and his team are friendly, warm and very professional, they tailor the program to your objectives within the group classes. I was sceptical about group lessons but it has been a revelation! There is a real sense of community learning together and having different abilities in the same class is actually really positive and did not hold me back despite being one of the more experienced players in the group as each lesson is layered to match the ability of each of the class members.If you really want to learn or improve on the guitar or bass I suggest you check them out and as long as you build on what they teach you with a disciplined practice regime you will 100% see improvements in your playing.Jon More...

I have always admired musicians as I believe the ability to play an instrument is a remarkable talent to have. Choosing to take guitar lessons is one of the best decisions I've made - I thoroughly enjoy my time at Guitar Tuition East London. The lessons are very lively and we are given freedom to choose and explore different music styles; I particularly enjoy jamming together in a group. I always pick up something new in each lesson and learning the different techniques gives me great motivation to discover more and build upon my skills.
Darryl, Dan and Barry are excellent teachers who provide great support and encouragement which boosts my confidence. I am also grateful for their patience when teaching as they ensure that everything explained is understood and they emphasise that no question asked is too basic. Guitar Tuition East London also keep in regular contact via telephone and emails to get a better understanding of how they can help me further in the lessons. I'd highly recommend them! :)

I thought I could teach myself, got pretty much nowhere and began to doubt my ability. Within four months of Darryl and Dan's guidance my ability and confidence has propelled me to even perform in front of an audience for the very first time. That is something I would not have believed if told four months ago. The structure of group over individual classes really works to accelerate confidence and makes learning the guitar much more enjoyable. The unexpected side benefit for me has been a much needed improvement in mindfulness. I'd recommend learning the guitar with Darryl and Dan over any mindfulness app! More...

Learning in a group setting has been incredibly useful as it has taught me to listen to others as well as myself. Darryl keeps lessons exciting and relevant Inviting various musicians to inspire and encourage learning.Theory is also valuable as we are able to take away written work and handouts which has been beneficial for me as a reference.

Brilliant tutor. I am not attending tuition by myself but I signed my daughter which is attending already 2 years. I must say from the beginning when she was completely blind about music and guitar and now my daughter make huge step ahead under Darryl's tuition. Very often I have a chance to take part in my daughters lesson and I can see really great connection between the tutor and pupils. The way how all activities have been organized is just amazing. The most important I never heard from my daughter she doesn't want to go for a guitar lesson because of something... Good spirit.Keep rollin! More...

I've been coming to the Monday night group guitar tuition with Darryl now for 3 months. My guitar playing has improved immensely. I've gone from being stuck playing the few songs I knew for the past 10 years and failing to learn anything new, to now feeling like I could happily learn to play anything with the solid foundation of skills being laid down in my weekly lessons.The lessons are varied and dynamic, often with everyone learning different things at the same time and at different stages but then moments come together where we've all learned different parts to the same song and we all get to play together. That's really fun. I thoroughly enjoy the lessons and have found a new enthusiasm for practicing. I am setting goals that I can see I will accomplish and I can't wait to get on this months workshop where we'll be learning from, and then playing with a band.

Q&As

There are so many things I love about what we do. The students at the school are all amazing, positive and lovely people. It's like seeing your friends coming into the school, so it never feels like work. I love coming up with great lessons and having the students be so excited about guitar playing and what they've learnt.

For the children, helping them enjoy music so much and watching them gain confidence in not only the guitar but in themselves is terrific. The responses from parents, especially those who have sent their children to other places before are so overwhelmingly positive that it makes what we do very easy.

It's not possible for me not to love what I do. Having students who really appreciate the lessons and what we do for them. And building a community that supports each other's success is a gratifying feeling as well. Having so many people passionate about music, guitar, all in one place is something very special.

I wanted to find somewhere like what we have created here but couldn't. The lessons I had previously did not help me with my guitar playing, and I started to think that you had to be gifted and talented. When actually, there is a science to being amazing at guitar. We've worked out that science and have applied to students consistently so that they achieve incredible results through it.

It's a place that's perfect if you want to get great at guitar or you want to have a lot of fun learning and be surrounded by other like-minded people.

We aren't for everyone here. The students that come to the school love what we do because it's so innovative and unique.

The teaching that happens isn't conventional, the majority of the teaching techniques here you cannot find anywhere else. The science and engineer behind it means it creates consistent results every time for a student, no matter how different each student's ambition is on the guitar.

We are right for you if you are passionate about music and guitar, you want to get fantastic progress on yourself, and you are willing to try something a little different. It's going to be a lot of fun, and there will be some challenges because learning guitar isn't always easy. But through it, you will gain a lot of confidence for yourself and your guitar playing.
