Professional Guitar Lessons in Barnsley

We know you may be nervous to start guitar lessons but there is no need to be. We teach all ages and abilities at Andy Stocks guitar school and we strive to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Remember that all of our team were once sat where you’ll be and we know how it feels. We want to listen to your aspirations and come up with a plan to help you achieve them. It’s never too early or too late to start playing the guitar and it can be one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do.

I enjoyed my lessons at the school and I learned things like theory and chord structures as well as techniques. All this helped me to build a following on the live circuit where I sing and play guitar. I am a songwriter and the tools the school has given me have really helped.
I have played guitar for years but hit a brick wall so I called the school. Within a few weeks my playing improved a lot. I learned how to open up the neck and now I can improvise to any backing tracks I want. I love it and now so does my wife because she doesn’t have to keep listening to the same things.
I have been having lessons at the school for about 6 years. I started having lessons from scratch in my late 60’s and since then I have played loads of gigs and recorded a few albums worth of material. These guys understand that it is never too late to start and will get you up and running in no time.

What Happens At Your Guitar Lesson?

You will be given either a 30 minute or 60 minute¬†appointment. Please arrive slightly earlier then your allocated time so that we can start your lesson promptly. It may help if you bring your own guitar but we also have guitars for you to use if you haven’t got one yet. You will meet your tutor and go into your classroom for a one to one guitar lesson. Parents are welcome to sit in on the lesson at any time. At the end of the lesson you will be given practice materials to take away in preparation for your next lesson. Please note that we operate a strict 24 hour cancellation rule. Cancellations made during this period will be charged at the full price.

  • Make sure you arrive in good time
  • Don’t forget your guitar
  • Meet your tutor
  • Enjoy your lesson and come away with practice materials

We realise that everyone has guitar lessons for different reasons. If you are just a casual player and are looking for no pressure lessons then we can do that. If, however, you want to be the best you can be then we can help you pass your Grades with flying colours and prepare you for degree level courses. Your style of tuition is completely up to you and it is never too late to start.

Our students are from all age groups and abilities. They are builders, doctors, plumbers, college students, accountants, school students, airline pilots, chefs, plasterers, nurses, teachers, company directors, the list goes on. All of them are at different levels but what brings them all together is their desire to play guitar.

The most common thing people say once they start is that they wished they had started earlier. Don’t be shy, get in touch and start playing guitar.
