The Guitar School Northampton was established in September of 2009 by Lee Kenny. We offer the best in one to one tuition for, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, ukulele, drums and vocals.
We now offer acoustic, electric guitar, bass and ukulele lessons online through Skype. Nothing will ever compare to having a tutor there in person to guide you through the learning process! But for many who can't find a reliable tutor locally, or for those who live too far from a good a guitar, bass or ukulele teacher, Skype is the way forward. If you have viewed one of our video tutorials and would like a more in-depth lesson with one of our instructors, Skype can make this happen no matter where in the world you are. All you need is a good computer, with a camera and a good internet connection!
Here at The Guitar School, we are dedicated to raising the standard of guitar and drum tuition not just in Northamptonshire, but now across the world. We cater for all ages, levels, and styles taking an individual approach to tuition, ensuring that our students develop their own strengths and weaknesses whilst gaining a firm understanding of the fundamental elements in playing the guitar or drums.
We are RGT registered (www.registryofguitartutors.com) and we prepare many of our students for RGT exams with a 100% pass rate. Since December 2009 The Guitar School has hosted the RGT examinations. These are held three times a year, March/April, June/July, and Nov/Dec. In 2012 Lee Kenny was accepted on to the board of examiners for the RGT.
RGT organises internationally recognised examinations in electric, acoustic, classical and bass guitar - from total beginner to Diploma level - in partnership with London College of Music Exams and is certificated by Thames Valley University. All RGT graded exams are accredited by the Qualifications & Curriculum Authority (QCA), and UCAS points are available for grades 6-8.
Whether it’s for fun or a serious ambition we always cater for the individual, whilst employing contemporary methods of teaching the theoretical and practical elements of playing music.
(Please note that the free online resources part of our site is still under development. We have much more on the way. If there is a song, solo, riff or lesson that you would like to see, just email us and we will do our best to make it so).
