Fretworks Guitar group

Description

Guitar students learn to improvise and compose as well as performing and listening critically to a variety of genres. They learn something of the history of the instrument and the music they are playing, and are given opportunities to perform at regular concerts in prestigious venues such as the Belgrade Theatre, Warwick Arts Centre and Coventry Cathedral.

This group is also a great opportunity to learn other fretted instruments such as mandolin, ukulele and bass guitar, and progress their learning to a higher level.

Our guitar groups will get the opportunity to perform at live venues and will come together to perform twice a year at our showcase events.
