Guitar Courses at the London Music School

Here at the LMS we run a variety of unique and challenging guitar tuition courses, from our one year BTEC National Award in Music Performance, to our own LMS Performance and Production Courses. We also offer a variety of part-time guitar courses, and an intensive two-week Summer Course.

Our full time guitar courses begin every year in April and October, with new part time courses starting each January, April, July and October. Enrolment is now open for our full time Diploma Courses commencing in April and October 2022. All of our courses are unique and flexible, placing emphasis on what each individual student needs in order to develop their technical ability and practical experience as a musician. We always place emphasis on the need to perform and our students gain varied experience in solo performance, session playing, accompaniment skills and playing in a band.


Directed by experienced guitarist Jack Richardson, our courses aim to take students on a rewarding journey through contemporary music education as they develop their skill and confidence with their instrument. Jack has been teaching music privately and in colleges for over a decade, delivering workshops and courses on subjects such as technical development, creativity, songwriting, composition and genre studies. Originality and creativity are a big part of his teaching style. As students progress, not only will their technical ability and understanding improve, they will build up a repertoire of their own material as well as being encouraged to find their own unique voice on their instrument.

Our courses cover all contemporary styles and place emphasis on the need to perform. Students will gain experience in live performance, session playing and playing as part of a band.

Course Subjects

All of our full time guitar courses cover the key areas of technical skill associated with playing the guitar, such as use of the fingerboard and the application of various playing techniques. The London Music School offers unrivalled one-to-one tuition, harmony and theory classes, and song-writing and sight-reading lessons. Full time courses include frequent participation in group workshops, rhythm workshops and recording sessions, giving students the opportunity to widen their experience in live performance and recording settings, working with other musicians and accompanying vocalists.
