Coda Guitar offers Skype music lessons to those students who want the benefits of tailored, face to face tuition from the comfort of their own home. Lessons are available for guitar, bass, ukulele and more (see our instruments section for more information). Our tutor has over 20 years teaching, and 35 years playing experience, and is fully DBS checked. Lessons are also offered using alternate platforms: Zoom, Google Hangouts or Meet, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp.
Skype lessons are effectively the same as face to face lessons, in that it’s possible for our tutor quickly correct posture and technique issues (through observation and demonstration), and that lessons are entirely focused on the requirements of individual students (when compared to online video lessons). Lessons are always tailored to suit individual tastes, and cover a wide range of styles across different ability levels. Whether you’re looking to learn for fun, complete music grades or need help with school / college courses, Skype lessons can be just as effective in aiding development as face to face lessons.
Lesson plans are established prior to Skype sessions, and PDF scores, audio + video demos, backing tracks and useful online links are shared to support lessons and aid home practice. New scores can easily be prepared using Guitar Pro and Sibelius applications, and new audio + video demos can be produced using Coda Guitar’s music studio, centered around the Cubase Pro 9 recording suite, and a Logitech C922 web cam.
A detailed record of lesson progression is kept to ensure that students develop their playing in a thorough and efficient way, and our tutor is available to answer queries in between sessions.
As with face to face lessons, the first Skype lesson is only £10 for 60 minutes, so students can experience the format before deciding to commit to regular lessons.
