Guitar Open Session

Shared with permission from Paul Davies:

Because of the volume of new enquiries currently being received for the Guitar session on a Thursday, we have decided to host a Guitar open session for new enquiries, therefore any enquires received  will now be informed of the event and indeed invited along.

The session will enable Steve to assess the children’s level of ability and enable us to either plan a new group or infill to existing groups including the possibility of some children joining in with one of our many Saturday morning groups currently running at the Point.

The event is planned for Thursday  26th Feb 3.45-4.30pm at the Point

Information required is as follows:

  • Name/contact details
  • Age/gender
  • Level of competence if any
  • Type of Guitar i.e. classical ,Acoustic or Electric etc.

It is essential that children bring their guitars with them to the session
