BASS, ELECTRIC & ACOUSTIC GUITAR LESSONS AT SOUL STUDIOS
THE BENEFITS to learning an instrument have been proven time and again, not to mention, it’s just cool! Playing the guitar is especially great to tune your ear musically, to learn music theory, improve vocal pitching, improve your IQ, concentration levels, brain speed, dexterity and is a really nice accompaniment if you like to have a little sing too! Of course not many people choose to sing and play BASS! But it happens on occasion. To name a few we have Sting, Suzi Quatro & Mark King (Level 42).
YOU CAN START LEARNING from 4yrs of age with basics on a ½ size guitar and work your way up from there.
LESSONS ARE HELD WEEKLY 44 weeks of the year breaking 4 weeks during August, 2 weeks over Christmas and 2 weeks over Easter. Once you book your time slot it’s yours. No need to re-schedule week on week.
PAYMENT IS SIMPLE monthly standing orders. No commitment to a whole term up front. No cancellation fee. We even give you a 30-day money back guarantee which means that if within the first 30 days from that very 1st lesson you decided Guitar lessons aren’t for you we will refund 100% of your money right away.
There’s no risk so no reason not to give it a shot!

FAQs – What you probably want to know...
DO YOU TEACH ALL FORMS OF GUITAR?
Pretty much! We teach acoustic (which is where most kids tend to start), electric and bass. For acoustic think singer songwriter. For bass think that beautiful line from Billie Jean and for electric think face melting solos with fireworks going off at the side of the stage! Some people love the idea of crazy solo’s (mainly electric), some love to groove (mainly bass) and some love the idea of playing and singing (mainly acoustic). There’s no right or wrong answer and here you can learn it all! Sadly the only thing we don’t currently teach is Ukulele but it may be something we introduce at a later date.
HOW LONG ARE LESSONS?
30 minutes is standard but some of our older kids / adults have lessons for 45mins or 60mins. That’s something that can be discussed. But 30mins is what we offer as a good place to start for the average student.
HOW MUCH ARE LESSONS/HOW DO WE PAY?
Lessons are currently £40.00 per hour (ie. £20.00 for 30mins, £30.00 for 45mins). Lessons are held 44 weeks of the year and are paid for over 12 months via standing order. We do NOT take cash or cheque and they cannot be paid for on a weekly basis. When you sign up you pay your first 2 months plus tuition workbook and then you need to get your standing order in place for subsequent months thereafter.
WHEN / WHERE ARE LESSONS HELD?
They’re held in Soul Studios which is located in Bishop’s Stortford at South Street end of town. We start as early as 3pm and finish as late as 8pm in the studios. Our mobile lessons in the Guitar Truck do vary (so please contact us for this). We offer lessons in many primary schools in and around Bishop’s Stortford too so that might be a good option for some of you with younger kids.
WHAT DAY ARE LESSONS HELD?
We currently do lessons Monday – Friday. Weekends are subject to teacher availability.
ARE THEY 1 TO 1 OR GROUP?
1 to 1 only as it stands but please do let us know if you’re interested in group learning too as this is a service that works quite well for guitar.
WE DON’T HAVE A GUITAR. DO WE NEED TO GET ONE BEFORE WE START?
No, absolutely not. Plenty of people enjoy just coming for their lesson once a week and do zero practice in between. We’re under no illusion that everyone wants to be pro! It can just be something they enjoy during lesson time. But, of course, if you want to go out and buy a Guitar we’re happy to advise.
DO YOU DO GRADES?
We don’t usually but of course we can. You would need to source and buy the material but our teachers will be able to help you learn it if that’s your preference. Though we’ve found most people prefer to play for fun and just enjoy their lessons/improvement without needing it graded.
CAN WE HAVE A TASTER LESSON?
We don’t offer taster lessons but our 30 day money back guarantee means that if at any point in the 1st 30 days you/your child does not wish to continue, let us know and we’ll refund you 100% of your money.
WHAT AGE DO YOU START TEACHING FORM?
We start teaching kids as young as 4yrs old.
ARE YOU INSURED AND DBS CHECKED?
Absolutely! We have public liability insurance and all teachers are Enhanced DBS checked.
