Why it’s great being matched with the right guitar teacher by us:

1. We will find you the right guitar lessons in London—100% free!

Our team will put skilful care into matching you with the London guitar tuition that will best accommodate the needs you have.

2. Have a learning programme customised for you

Your experienced London guitar teacher will create a lesson programme especially for your needs. Study electric guitar or acoustic guitar—or both (and why not!) Study by either guitar tabs and chords, or by reading music.

3. We’ll take care of all the legwork and phone calls for you.

You do not need to ring the tutors or waste time waiting for people to reply. Just leave your details with our team and we will run through our matching procedure and then get back to you after we have spotted the classes you are looking for. We’ll then get the tutor to contact you in person.

4. Travel or choose to stay at home.

Take advantage of guitar lessons without the hassle of travelling. Be taught inside your home in London with your knowledgeable, experienced and understanding guitar tutor. Or alternatively, if you’d prefer, you can get guitar tuition within the teaching space of a local tutor, and take full advantage of the unique setting that they have created.

(Keep in mind: mainly because of high popularity, in-home classes might not always be available.)

5. Zero sign-up costs or obscured costs—ever.

You will not be charged for anything except your guitar lessons at the normal rates of the tutor.

6. No more lock-in commitments or arrangements.

Let’s be honest, organising guitar lessons in London should definitely not resemble tax time!

7. Be shown enough basic music theory to get the most from the guitar.

But never so much that your learning feels like an Honours in Music Theory (ouch).

8. Study complete songs

Be taught songs in their entirety... not just separate parts.

9. Fast and easy progression

Develop speedily with ease—and love each minute!

10. Study the pieces, songs or styles of music that you love.

Perhaps it was an attractive piece of classical guitar that initially held your curiosity. Perhaps it had been those screaming electric guitar solos or else some soulful fingerpicking on an acoustic guitar. Regardless how huge that challenge is... you will not falter in your private guitar tuition.

11. Train your ear and improvise without using a lead sheet whenever needed!

Creating musical confidence and know-how are part of the core of our guitar lessons. Imagine being the one called on by a mate to improvise the electric guitar for his band’s show that night. Or think about taking your acoustic guitar to a BBQ and then being in position to make a makeshift duet with a friend who did the very same. Delightful.

12. Master the proper technique from the outset and prevent pesky bad habits.

The fact is, there are simply no instructional books or videos that can replace direct interaction between you and your London guitar tutor, in your own tailor-made guitar coaching. Did you know that the techniques for electric guitar are distinct from those needed for acoustic guitar? Furthermore, the way to play a classical guitar is really different again. This is exactly why it’s vital to acquire the right support with a teacher who knows what they’re doing.

13. Our teachers are able to offer all levels

You may be new to the instrument and hoping to discover guitar tuition for beginners or perhaps you are an intermediate or advanced student already. No matter your level, we’ll be ready to help you in your search.

Before we search every corner of our database, matching you with the best guitar tutor, we have a few minutes with you to take note of exactly what you need from your London guitar lessons.

4. We follow up after the first lesson

What’s next? Your London guitar lessons! The first lesson is normally a very exciting meeting, in which rapport is established between you and your guitar teacher.

If, by some chance, this initial guitar lesson is not what you had in mind, we’ll look into it to remedy any problems and make certain your guitar lessons keep going just as intended.

1. Will searching through Stars & Catz lead me to the BEST TUTORS?

Indeed. That is due to the fact that Stars & Catz is a network, not an agency. We appeal to the very best tutors because our ‘network’ status means, in contrast to agencies, we do not take a percentage from tuition payments you make to the music teacher.

Good teachers appreciate this. Thriving, premium tutors would not be interested in paying 20 or 30 percent from each lesson payment to a third party. (You can’t blame them!)

5. What will be the regularity of the classes?

We leave this up to you. Weekly classes are typically advised but if you’d like fortnightly sessions then that’s fine.
