Our Summer Sessions

Weekend Breaks

Perhaps you haven't picked up the guitar for years or maybe you require a little something to push you along in your pursuit for musical excellence, then a weekend break would be exactly what you need. We have a variety of different weekend dates available over the summer months and have different sessions catering for different abilities.

Which ability am I?

Beginners - you will need an understanding of the basics or equivalent of entry level RGT Grade 1- 2.

Intermediates – you must have a good understanding of RGT Grade 3, 4 or 5 or equivalent.

Advanced - students must have an understanding of RGT Grade 6 and above or equivalent to gain entry at this level.

Please contact us if you are unsure of your ability.


Each weekend break is available in Rock (Electric), Blues (Electric/Acoustic) and Jazz (Electric/Acoustic) guitar. Select which style you would like to study and with each course looking at all the key elements of that style, it will enable you to advance your knowledge and technique in your chosen genre.

The Weekend

The weekend will begin on Friday evening, where we shall hold a short introduction. You will be given details regarding the weekends plan and course programme as well as being advised of necessary Health and Safety procedures. Course attendees will then be shown to their accommodation in order that they can get settled in and relax in their own personal space. Your accommodation has a common area if you wish to socialise and we also provide a fully functioning kitchen in which you can prepare your own meals or hot drinks.

After a comfortable nights rest, you will be fully prepared for the commencement of lessons on Saturday. Saturday session time will be 7hrs and on Sunday the morning session will consist of a 3hr lesson.

During the lessons you will be given numerous guitar exercises plus information for you to take home with you. The purpose of this is to provide you with an effective personalised practise program for your continued studies once the course has finished and with the tools to achieve this, ensuring you are on the right path to grow and develop further as a musician.

Location and Amenities

The Guitar School is located in the heart of St. Leonards, Hastings with many amenities close by.

Of course it's not always going to be work; outside the allocated tuition times you will be given the freedom to come and go as you please. You may wish to use this opportunity to take advantage of Hastings ' vibrant music scene as live music can always be discovered in one of our numerous venues at the weekend.
