HERE ARE JUST SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF LESSONS WITH
FRETS ON FIRE

How to practice guitar

LEARN HOW TO PRACTICE GUITAR LIKE A PRO

Everyone has heard the saying that Practice Makes Perfect, but most people don’t understand “how” to practice guitar properly. We’ll show you where you’re going wrong, what to do instead, and how to make practicing both fun and rewarding – so that you can start making real progress!

LEARN HOW ROCK, BLUES AND METAL MUSIC WORKS

Being a guitarist is not just about knowing how to play cool lots of things – it’s about understanding what’s going on “under the bonnet” of all your favourite music. Once you understand why things work and why things sound good, a whole new world of playing and creativity will open up for you.

LEARN HOW TO IMPROVISE AND CREATE SOLOS

Despite what you may have heard, “Improvising” is not some mysterious talent people are born with. It’s something you have to learn and practice, and we can show exactly how to do it no matter what level you’re at with your playing.

MASTER YOUR GUITAR TECHNIQUE

Vibrato. Bending. Picking. Legato. Sweep Picking. We’ll teach you the guitar techniques that every rock player is using all the time, and show you how to master them. We’ll show you how to break down speed barriers, and build a guitar technique that will enable you to play anything you want.

GET THE RIGHT ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS

In a sea of unreliable information, what you really need is someone by your side to ensure you’re getting the right information at the right time. We’ve encountered just about every problem or question it’s possible to have when learning guitar, so you can be sure you’re getting the best solutions for anything that comes up.

UNPARALLELED SUPPORT IN-BETWEEN LESSONS

Being in a lesson is great, but what happens when you get home and find you have a problem or question? With normal guitar lessons nothing happens – you’re on your own. At Frets on Fire we’re here to help you make the most of your playing — all the time, not just while you’re here at the studio.

MEET THE INSTRUCTORS

AJ BANNERMAN - HEAD INSTRUCTOR

AJ is a guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and educator with over ten years teaching experience, ranging from one-to-one lessons and group lessons, all the way through to large workshops and masterclasses. He has a broad education in music, but his original and biggest passion is for Blues-based Classic Rock and Heavy Metal Guitar, which he has been passionately studying for almost 20 years. Still a passionate student of music himself, AJ has attended workshops with some of the UK’s top guitarists including Rick Graham and Shaun Baxter.

A full-time musician and dedicated music teacher, AJ’s goal is to simplify and optimise the learning process for students, and to help people from all walks of life unlock their full musical potential. He has recently released his first instructional book – Modes For Rock Guitar Players – presenting a fresh and demystifying perspective on one of the most notoriously confusing topics in guitar. You can listen to a couple of audio clips and videos of AJ’s playing below:

JO BANNERMAN - CO-INSTRUCTOR

Co-instructor Jo has successfully taught hundreds of beginner students of all ages, and knows how to make the learning process easy and fun for every student.
