Guitar Workshop

Try an evening - no obligation, no charge - simply contact Derek so we can expect you.

Your questions answered...

We've been running for over 25 years!

If you own a classical or 6-string folk guitar and play fingerstyle from conventional music notation (not tab), come along...

You're assured of a warm welcome - we have players from 6 months to 10 years' experience and music for all abilities.

Your first visit is free - nothing to pay, no obligation. If you join, it's just £4.55 a session paid termly (£6.50 a session if you "Pay on the Day").

We meet in Farlington. Parking is free in a private car-park. Map and directions here

We meet from 7:30 to 10pm on alternate Thursday evenings in term time - dates are on the left
There's a break at 8:30 with complimentary Fairtrade Tea & Coffee, plus wine at cost. We appreciate help tidying up at the end!

Just bring your Classical or 6-string Folk Guitar (and your footstool or rest if you use one) and a music stand!
If you join, you buy The Workshop Collection - 120 ensembles & 30 Christmas pieces, all beautifully typeset.

Workshop is for guitarists of all abilities. Our ensemble music has parts to suit learners with just 2 terms of tuition and parts to challenge players with many years' experience. Download our free trio and see. Our music has a warm, full sound that's easy to join in with.

We always play as a complete group, and there's no shame in losing your place in the music or playing a wrong note!

We usually play 2 little Concerts a year. Apart from practising at home before a concert, most players just turn up and play for fun.

We do lots of playing! Workshop sharpens your sightreading, your rhythm and your listening skills; these will improve your solo playing too.

You choose whether you play an easy or a hard line! Download our free trio and you'll see what we mean.

Part of our continued success is that players support us so wholeheartedly - we have "long service" presentations to say Thank You!

What do I do next?
