Lady explaining how the courses work

Our guitar lessons for adults takes place weekly on a set day and time in our gorgeous premises in Park Lane Tower, DIFC.

The lessons are 45-minutes in duration and can be joined at any time during the year. (Longer lessons can be arranged on request)

As various slots are available during workdays up to 21:00 as well as on Saturdays, please contact our manager Celine at enrol@sandc.ae to choose the most convenient time for you to attend.

As all our guitar lessons for adults are highly personalised and tailored to the needs and wishes of each, you are welcome to decide whether you would like to sit the ABRSM grade examinations.

We totally understand that you play the guitar for your pleasure and enjoyment so this decision is totally optional.

We do not follow a set syllabus but rather adapt to each of our students as everyone is different and requires special attention.

We require an initial four-month attendance as we believe that it is the minimum amount of time an adult should study at S & C to benefit fully from our excellent guitar instruction. After this initial period, you are welcome to continue your guitar education on an on-going basis, but lessons are still booked per four months in advance.

Frequently asked questions

You are most welcome to join S & C even if you are an absolute beginner without any prior musical experience. Our guitar courses are designed for adults who are brand new to music so no previous knowledge is necessary to join. Learning how to read music notation and theory will be part of your guitar course so there is nothing to worry about.

Definitely not. We believe that there is no age limit to learn and enjoy playing the guitar for your own pleasure.

Of course! You are most welcome to give it a try and book an introductory lesson to find out if playing the guitar is really what you want to do. Be reassured that there is no need to possess any talent to join S & C. We believe that all adults are able to play the guitar thanks to the expert guidance of our excellent guitar instructors.

You do not need to own a guitar to start your guitar course as the purchase of the most suitable instrument for you to begin your education can be discussed with your instructor during your first guitar lesson. He or she will be able to make a recommendation and advise on the best guitar store to visit.

Absolutely! S & C is entirely dedicated to adults who wish to play for their pleasure and enjoyment so you are more than welcome to join.

You definitely need to practice if you intend to make any progress. Attending your guitar lessons will offer you the guidance and feedback needed to improve in the right direction but a personal daily practice is necessary to enhance your guitar skills.

It all depends on your current guitaristic level. As a complete beginner, you can start with 15 minutes each day to get into the habit of practising on a daily basis. It should then increase to 30 minutes quite rapidly as you will need enough time to review and improve the material that has been studied during your guitar lessons.

Not at all. All our guitar instructors have been selected for their remarkable understanding of adults who play the guitar for their own pleasure. They are, therefore, extremely patient, kind and supportive. We can assure you that your instructor will never judge, patronise or criticise you negatively.

Yes, we do offer preparation to the ABRSM grade examinations from grade 1 to grade 8, but sitting the exams is not compulsory.

It is an extremely difficult question to answer as it all depends on your abilities and the exact goal that you have in mind. As per our experience, we can, however, say that you should be able to play some exquisite simple guitar pieces after a few lessons only.

The duration of your guitar course depends on your personal goal after attending for a minimum of 4 months. Your lessons will then take place on an ongoing basis until you are satisfied with your guitar playing or unable to pursue your education.

Of course. If you are a proficient guitarist, we would certainly recommend that you inform us prior to the beginning of your course. It should, therefore, be booked with one of our senior guitar instructors, who definitely possess the right set of skills and experience to help you improve further.

Absolutely. We know how daunting it can be for a classically trained guitarist to step into jazz guitar playing and we would be delighted to support you in your endeavour.

As we do not follow a set syllabus but prefer adapting to each in order to provide you with the most suitable guitar education possible, the content of our guitar lessons depends on your current abilities, wishes and style studied.

At S & C, we understand that it can be difficult for some busy professionals to attend their guitar lessons on a set day and time each week. We will be happy to accommodate you but please inform us before signing up as any special request is subject to an extra fee and availability.
