Why you’ll love being matched to the right guitar teacher by Stars & Catz:

1. Be put in contact with the ideal Portsmouth guitar tutor—cost free!

We will put expert care into matching you to the Portsmouth guitar tuition that will best provide for your preferences.

2. Have a learning programme customised for you

Your experienced Portsmouth guitar teacher will customise a learning programme for your specific requirements. Focus on electric guitar or acoustic guitar—or both (and why not!) Study by either guitar tabs and chords, or by reading music.

3. We’ll do all the legwork and phone calls for you.

You do not need to call any tutors or wait for anyone to get back to you. Just leave your enquiry with us and we’ll do our matching process and straight get back to you when we’ve located the tutor you are searching for. We can then have them phone you in person.

4. Be taught at home or perhaps in your local teaching space.

Have the benefit of guitar tuition without the problem of travelling. Learn at your home in Portsmouth with a knowledgeable, experienced and understanding guitar tutor. Or possibly, if you’d rather, you’re able to get guitar tuition within the studio of your local tutor, and take advantage of the particular environment they’ve created.

(Please be aware: because of high popularity, in-home tutoring might not always be available.)

5. Absolutely no sign-up costs or secret costs—never.

There are no extra costs. All you invest in are your guitar classes at the normal rate of the tutor.

6. No long-term contracts, no paperwork and nothing to sign.

Let’s be truthful, coordinating guitar lessons in Portsmouth should definitely not seem like tax time!

7. Learn enough usable music theory to de-mystify the guitar.

But never so much that you think you’re enrolled in a PHD in Classical Music Theory (ouch).

8. Learn complete songs

Be given whole songs... not only individual riffs. Who wants a verse with no chorus?

9. Fast and easy progression

Progress rapidly and easily—and have a great time!

10. Play those pieces, songs or genres of music that inspired you to start.

Perhaps it was a wonderful piece of classical guitar which initially grabbed your interest. Maybe it was those stadium electric guitar solos or maybe country style picking on an acoustic guitar. Regardless of how huge that task is... you will not fall short in the private guitar tuition.

11. Train your ear and improvise without a music book anywhere, anytime!

Confidence developing and offering you helpful theory are central parts of your Portsmouth guitar tuition. Envision being the one called in by a mate to improvise the electric guitar for his band’s gig that night. Or what about taking your acoustic guitar to a BBQ and then being able to form a makeshift duet with a friend who did the same. Fabulous.

12. Master good technique from the very beginning and avoid common pitfalls.

The fact is, there are simply no ‘how-to’ manuals or online videos that can replace on-the-spot interaction between you and your Portsmouth guitar teacher, in your own personal guitar coaching. Did you know that the techniques for electric guitar are different to those needed for acoustic guitar? Moreover, the way to play a classical guitar is very different again. Therefore you have to acquire the proper support with a tutor who really knows what they’re doing.

13. Our tutors are able to instruct all levels

You could be a new comer to the instrument and in search of guitar lessons for beginners or maybe you are an intermediate or advanced student already. Whatever your level, we’ll be in a position to help you in your search.
