Guitar Encounters

Yamaha guitars in the classroom

Our newly revised Guitar Encounters course is a Contemporary course which covers a wide variety of genres and styles including Rock, Pop, Metal, Jazz, and everything in between!

We teach in classes of up to 8 students in a collaborative and fun musical environment where our tutors teach all the skills needed to be a fully functioning and rounded guitar player. This includes learning chords, melodies, improvisation and much more, all while learning to Play along to iconic guitar songs such as Back in Black (ACDC) and Johnny be Good (Chuck Berry)

The Guitar Encounters course has bespoke course material which students’ study from both at home, and in lessons and covers Grades 1-8.

Upon completion of each Guitar Encounters book students can sit an accredited Yamaha exam which tests the skills that have been learned over the course of the book.

While our courses are comprehensive and in depth, our teaching philosophy at Yamaha Tyneside is based on one word – FUN.

We hope you’ll want to join us on a musical journey so please get in touch for a free taster lesson!
