Hello. We’re The Guitar Social. We’ve taken the traditional guitar class and turned it on its head with a range of courses, jams and events that have entertained and developed thousands of guitar players in our brief 5 year history.

We aren’t just about scales, theory and solitary practice (although we do encourage all of those things) We’re about the magic that happens when musicians meet.

We’ve got a network of musical adventures for you to get involved in. The only thing missing is…you.

Connecting people through music

All of our learners get to know each other. They meet in the pub, they jam in the park, many of us have holidayed together and plenty of people have formed bands. We’ve put beginners centre stage in a bar in Camden and watched them charm huge audiences and we’ve taken seasoned players and got them out of their rut and onto better things. We’re a multifaceted rock and roll secret society that will take you wherever you want to go.

Meet New People, Learn New Skills

Experience tells us that learning is more fun when done alongside other people. It also increases the likihood of you continuing to play past your first year by a wide margin. This is why we do group classes and why we bring our learners together whenever we can.

It starts with an online class

If you don’t live in London you can still get involved by attending all our classes on Zoom. This means you can still jam with us but from the comfort of your own home.

It costs just £20 a month and is accessed by taking our tier two Patreon membership.

To deliver the best online experience we have invested in huge monitors so we can see what your hands are doing along with some of the very technology to deliver an online class that doesn’t feel like an online class.

Head to Patreon to find out more.

Holidays & Events

We have chartered boats and jammed on the high seas, we’ve arrived in bars all over Europe with our guitars and instigated mass sing-alongs. We’ve jammed on top of mountains. We’ve played through the night by campfires in the depths of the English Country Side, got lost in Berlin, launched spontaneous classes in South Eastern Jungles and with many more adventures scheduled, we’ve only really just began.



Real world jams, musical experiences, adventure and connection. These are the principles of The Guitar Social

It is really important to make music accessible to all. This ground breaking World record guitar lesson attempt is a great initiative, and is a small stepping stone on the way to enabling visually impaired people to learning an instrument.

From the Guitar Social Community

The class is run by a group who really understand the principles of learning and the reasons for doing it! Also we are given sensible and realistic targets and outcomes coupled with very helpful practice schedules.
Lindsay, London
The Guitar Social is unique, vibrant, edgy, always fun and uplifting. Where else could I get top quality guitar teaching alongside a jam in the park, fun Zoom guitar based games or an inspiring and sociable camping trip.
Helen, Devon
The lessons are great fun, the resources are excellent and I’m learning more than ever before. On top of that, there are loads of opportunities to get together and play with other students. Best guitar lessons I’ve ever had.
Stevie, London
Thanks to The Guitar Social , I am living my dream after years of longing to play the guitar but feeling too scared to go for it. I am loving it. The classes are so enjoyable.
