How many lessons will I need to have?

This depends on your goal! Many students keep coming back to keep learning and getting better. When you feel you’ve learned all you need to know you can stop, it is different for everyone.

How much do lessons cost?

There are quite a few options for this, depending on lesson length, and format (1-1, 2-1, group, or a mixture of group and 1-1, for example 3 group lessons and 1 1-1 lesson each month). We will find a solution for you depending on your budget and how keen you are to progress.

What is a good age to start lessons?

Any age from 6 and up for guitar, 5 and up for ukulele!

Where are the lessons?

116A Georges St Lower, Dun Laoghaire. Check out the location page to see on the map!

What kind of guitar should I buy to get started?

I recommend buying a nylon string acoustic guitar to get started, unless you really want to play country or folk, in which case a steel string acoustic is better for you. In either case you can get a good starter guitar for €200 or less. Go into guitar shops in town and try out some guitars – you will most likely prefer some guitars over others. Get one that you like the sound of and that feels comfortable to you! Check out the post on whether you should play electric or acoustic guitar

What kind of ukulele should I buy to get started?

As with guitars, you should play different ukuleles until you find one you really like the feel and sound of. The most common kind is a soprano which is the smallest, but I recommend getting a concert or a tenor uke. They have a few more frets which can come in handy! For €100 you can get a nice uke, I like the sound of Korala ukes myself.
