Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach complete beginners?

Absolutely, if you’ve never even touched a guitar before you’re more than welcome! I have taught loads of beginners over the years! Indeed, here at Guitar Lessons Belfast you are never a beginner for long – we will have you strumming away in no time!

Do you teach children?

Yes! Though from experience I find children younger than 11 tend to struggle with the guitar, so I recommend starting your kids off from 11 and up! Half hour lessons each week tend suit children best! You are more than welcome to join us during the guitar lesson if you wish to sit in!

Where are you based?

I teach the majority of my guitar lessons at from my home studio located on Marlborough Park South, Belfast, BT9 HR. It is a fantastic place to learn guitar, with a calm atmosphere and some great equipment. Click on the map below to give the studio's rough location on Google Maps! My full teaching address will be provided with your first lesson booking.

Can I learn Electric AND Acoustic guitar?

Of course, you can take your lessons in electric or acoustic, the choice is yours!

Do I need to own a guitar before I start my first lesson?

Not at all, I have guitars here that you are more than welcome to use!

Can I take grades?

Absolutely, I can provide Rockschool graded tuition to help you undertake grades on electric and acoustic guitar. The higher grades can help younger students gain UCAS points for their applications to UK universities. However, grades are completely optional as many of my students simply learn for their own enjoyment. For more information about grades simply get in touch.

Learn to play Guitar!
I have made tons of progress with my guitar playing after only a few sessions with Matt. He really knows his stuff and makes sure you understand the fundamentals such as rhythm and strumming patterns. I would highly recommend him. - Noel Clerkin
