Our Beginner Guitar Course is one of the most popular beginner guitar courses offered in Toronto that is specifically designed for the brand new beginner guitarist. This 10 week course makes learning the guitar fun, engaging and rewarding. Don’t wait too long to register and prepay for this beginner guitar course as it often sells out before the first class begins. Classes are 1 hour in length and taught in an intimate setting, limited to only 7 people. For more information on our beginner guitar course and 2024/2025 calendar please click here


If you are a beginner guitar player and have been playing guitar consistently for more than 2 months already you will likely want to check out our private lessons as that is what we suggest participants do after completing this course.



No prior knowledge of the guitar is necessary, just a willingness to have fun and make some new friends! If you do not own a guitar do not worry, once you prepay for the guitar course we will happily secure your guitar rental based on your needs, body size, stylistic preferences and have it waiting for you at one of our trusted music retail partners.
