Learning to play guitar is a great way to enjoy your favourite songs. At Causeway School of Music you will be taught the basics of the instrument and how to strum and finger pick. Our tutors use both Rockschool and Trinity Rock & Pop graded examinations to help their student’s progress.

As your playing skills progress, tutors will develop your performance technique and sight-reading and improvisation skills with a view to preparing you as a good rounded musician ready for gigs.

We also offer tuition in bass guitar. Again, all aspects of bass playing are covered, and you may wish to play solely for pleasure or measure your progress using the 'Rockschool' or Trinity Rock & Pop bass syllabi. Tutors will aim to develop your performance technique and improvisation skills through teaching you to play a range of different styles and genres.
