Style of guitar lessons
Our teachers always prefer beginners to learn to read music as this can greatly improve your skill and also if you wanted to pursue a more professional career, you will be a lot more favoured over guitarists that can’t read music.
However, we teach how you want to learn, be it intab, by ear or simply by learning shapes.
Gain a musical head!
Theory is not essential, but very useful when it comes to learning the guitar.
Learning the theory behind music can allow you to write songs with ease, play solos straight away and generally sound and play like a better musician.
Our comprehensive lessons include:
Learning the notes on the guitar
Learning to read a staff
Applying the notes on the staff to the guitar
Learning rhythm & timing
Amongst much, much more!
Our background at Seven Hills Tuition consists of classical, jazz, blues and rock. Our teachers have all been playing for decades and can adapt to any style you wish to learn.
What are the Differences?
Classical guitar is a much more traditional approach to playing. It is learnt by strict rules and positions and focuses immensely on correct technique and tone.
In classical guitar, you have multiple notes being played at different times. For example, you use your thumb as your bass notes and your fingers as the main melody (usually).
We teach ABRSM classical if required or alternatively, we can just teach you how to play and how to sound great!
Arguably the ‘hardest’ genre to play but usually the most preferred by our teachers. Not many students tend to learn jazz however, it is great for improving your technique and musical theory.
Jazz is taught primarily by understanding the music and why we play in a certain way and why we play certain notes.
There are multiple genres of jazz but they are all very handy to learn. Jazz takes a lot of listening and application, but anyone can do it!
By far the most fun to play! Blues is all about showing your emotion through your guitar. Playing big, carrying lead lines that drop some peoples jaws when they hear it.
Blues is taught by not having so much theory in mind like jazz and classical but primarily working of a ‘blues scale’ and playing with as much feeling as you can.
The tone will not come straight away but don’t fret, it will come!
Learning techniques such a big whole tone string bends is essential for blues – this takes a lot of finger strength but sounds pretty cool once you can do it!
Rock guitar is another fun genre to play. Rock is very similar to blues music (this is where it came from).
Rock is often played with a harder, more distorted tone. Also, depending on the style of rock music, can require some pretty fast picking and licks.
Our guitar lessons in Sheffield are completely tailored to you by industry professionals who want nothing more than to share their talent with aspiring guitarists, regardless of age, gender or experience!
Please note that Seven Hills Tuition not only covers South Yorkshire, but also the surrounding areas, in particular, guitar lessons in Chesterfield too!
