Hey guys 👋🏼
I am a complete beginner who has just realised that playing the guitar will really satisfy my soul and enable me to fully enjoy my passion which is singing 🎤
Any info would be kindly appreciated 🙏🏼

Interesting insight into the commercial song-writing process..

Hello there!

I am on the search for an acoustic guitarist to play a 1-2 hour set for a group of 11-13 year olds. We run outdoor adventure activity programmes for young people and on events where the children stay overnight we like to have a camp fire and some acoustic guitar playing in the background. Sometimes developing into children wanting to show off their talents too or just sing along but just a chance for them to a chill out together after a long day of activity.

We have a few events coming up if anyone is available to help out:

Date: Friday 8th September
Time: from 19.30 - 22.30 - playing between approx 20.00 and 22.00
Location: near Orpington (BR6)

Time: from 19.30 - 22.30 - playing between approx 20.00 and 22.00

Time: from 19.30 - 22.30 - playing between approx 20.00 and 22.00

Please PM me if interested or email [email protected].

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Darryl and Dan and the whole team at East London Guitar School for the patience skill and determination that has enabled me to move from being a bedroom guitarist with a lot of bad habits to a more confident and technically competent guitarist with a passion for jamming with others!! Though I do still have some bad habits to work on......don't we all!! I was in London on business over a 3 month period and came across the East London Guitar School, was welcomed from the start and came to feel like one of the family each week as we learned how to practice well, jam together and keep it all interesting and fun. Can't recommend these guys enough, I will be back just as soon as I can......
I started learning my first musical instrument the guitar nearly two years ago, I'm over fifty and I have never been musical at all. Having seen a leaflet from Guitar Tuition East London those two years ago, I just decided to go and see them. Both Darryl and Jennifer were instantly likeable and I could see straightaway for someone like me it could work learning here. Still with them, they are growing as a company and I am proud to say I am growing as a musician. Never would I have dreamed I would be able to jam with others in a group, or even strum songs that are classics. I still have a long way to go, but looking forward to each step with Guitar Tuition East London. Its not only the learning, but I have met a huge amount of other people in classes, most are now friends. Some I'm not sure why they are even there, they sound as they should be in the recording studio rather than in classes. Just goes to show we all have something we can learn from teachers who know what they are doing.

East London Guitar Tuition 🎸 All ages & levels. Online/in-person. DM for bookings. Let's jam! 🤘

🎸🌟Easter Guitar Workshop Highlights! 🌟🎸

Hey rockstars! 🤘We've just wrapped up our amazing Easter workshops at Guitar Tuition East London, and we couldn't be more proud of our talented students! 🎉

Over 3 epic days, these young musicians worked hard on perfecting 3 iconic songs: "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World, "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses, and "Crush Crush Crush" by Paramore! 🎶

Day 1 was all about practice, as our dedicated students showed off the skills they've been honing for weeks! 💪 Day 2 saw them fine-tuning their tones, experimenting with pedals and equipment to capture the perfect sound for their performances. 🎛️🔥

In between sessions, our students enjoyed the full rockstar experience! 🌟 They hung out in the chill-out zone, bonding over board games and video games and making memories to last a lifetime. 🎮🎲

On Day 2, our talented crew even named themselves the "Doom Fighters"! 🎸💥 And on Day 3, they took it to the next level, hitting the studio to record their tracks alongside our phenomenal session drummer. 🥁🎧

The grand finale? An exclusive showcase performance for their parents, where the Doom Fighters absolutely rocked the stage and showed off their incredible progress! 🎉👏

Well done, everyone! 🎉 You absolutely smashed it, and we can't wait to see you at our next workshop! 👏 Keep rocking, and stay tuned for more exciting updates from Guitar Tuition East London! 🎸💯


Happy Easter everyone! We hope you have a wonderful weekend 🐰🌷⁣

Just a quick reminder that our guitar school will be closed on Easter Monday, 11th April, so we can spend some time with loved ones…⁣

But don’t worry, we'll be back on Tuesday 12th April ready to rock with our guitar lessons! 🎸🎶⁣

Well done to these hard working young men for performing 2 songs at our last gig!!


Thank you so much to our wonderful students and community for donating so generously at our Ukraine benefit gig in April 🎸⁣

On the day we raised £840…⁣

And thanks to you we can match that and will be sending £1680 to British-Ukrainian Aid! 🙏👏


✨ Parents of babies from 5m-2yrs old ✨⁣

Thank you so much to everyone who came to the Ukraine gig on Saturday afternoon, whether you came as an audience member to support everyone, or if you were one of our performers…

And also to all of you who donated so generously to support British-Ukrainian Aid, even if you weren't able to join us on the day.

The gig was so much fun, with lots of brilliant performances from both kids and adult students, and delicious cakes from Signorelli London and Vacherin London.

So far we've raised over £800, and we're still receiving donations until the end of the week (Sunday 8th May), when we'll count up the final amount to donate.

Darryl & Jen are also going to double the amount raised, so we can send as much as possible over to support British-Ukrainian Aid…

Who are a brilliant charity who help vulnerable people and families who have been displaced by the war by giving them the vital medical supplies they need.

But it's not too late to donate if you haven't already and would like to!

If you would still like to donate, just send us a message for more details, or email us on [email protected]

Thank you so much for your support and generosity!


Tomorrow 1-4 at the lab in East village!

With performances from our students food from and .london

Come down and donate!


What a story!

Chardelle started with us as a complete beginner on the guitar... and now she's writing, performing and recording...

How does she do it?

Chardelle works hard... She knows that she's got songs in there that she wants to write and get out... and is committed to working on her craft.

We are so happy to be there as part of her journey.

This video is from our most recent student "Big Gig".

Chardelle is performing her original song "Fight For You".

She's being supported on lead guitar by another fantastic musician and student of ours Jon Russo.

On backing vocals another wonderful student Rhona. On Keyboards we have the talented Nicky Thorne Laying down the drums is our resident drum hero Argyris Thomoglou and on rhythm guitar is our amazing teacher Dan Mayhew

Well done to Chardelle!!! We are all so proud of you.


If you’ve got a baby or toddler between 4m-2yrs, come and join us on Tuesday the 15th March at 10am & 11am, for our special Disco Week baby concert 🕺 with 45 mins of live guitar music, dancing, and fun 🎶🎵⁣⁣

*Behind the scenes* setting up for our student Christmas Open Mic afternoon!


Next Thursday I’m going to be doing our first ever Open Mic event in East Village, Stratford. ⁣

Anyone can come along to it, whether you want to perform a song… or you want to come along and listen to some cool music. ⁣

It’s happening on the 4th November from 7pm to 10pm.⁣

Up until now, I’ve only done open mic events for my students...⁣

I’m doing this because being able to perform is such a valuable learning experience for anyone who wants to have more confidence playing in front of people…⁣

… or who wants to get out and do more performances again.⁣

For this open mic event you can show up on the day… however I can’t guarantee there will be a space for you to perform. (This doesn’t matter if you’re showing up to watch.)⁣

If you want to take part… visit the website below and register. That way I’ll be able to guarantee you’ll get a spot :-)⁣

Got questions?⁣

I’ve included some FAQ’s on the page too. Click the link to see if your question has been answered there already.

Yesterday some of our students had the great opportunity to perform on the main stage at a local event In East Village. Supporting before their gig later that evening. ⁣

Thank you to for organising such a fun day and inviting us to take part!


It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to jam together in person. So everyone had a lot of fun learning how to be a rockstar at one of our kids workshops this weekend! 🎤🎸


Jam with a couple of our teenager students before their lesson today 🎸🤘

So lovely to see so many students and friends yesterday at our first in-person open mic event in over a year! 🎸⁣⁣

It was a great afternoon of live music…⁣
And thanks to for having us ☕️🍰


Often I’ll hear from my students…⁣
“I haven’t practiced enough”...⁣
Or… “I feel like I should practice more.”⁣
These are three little-known “life hacks” to getting more done with the time we have ⏰

1. Keep your guitar out of it's case between lessons. ⁣
For some reason as humans… we have some weird psychological barrier to something in a case.⁣
So put it somewhere you see it often and can pick it up easily.⁣

2. Use the Colgate habit. Link your guitar practice to a habit you already have each day. Like brushing your teeth…⁣ 🪥
For example "every day after I brush my teeth before bed, I practice guitar"⁣

3. Aim to practice for just 2 minutes. Everybody has 2 minutes here or there, while you're making dinner… waiting for your kids to finally put their shoes on to go out… or before bed. ⁣
If you end up doing more, then that's a bonus! But 2 minutes here and there adds up quickly.⁣

If you'd like help with your guitar practice and aren't sure where to start, DM us, or call us today on 02031434809 📞🎸


Lovely review from one of our students 🌟🎸


Very excited to be preparing for our next student open mic event *in person* this month, for the first time in nearly a year and a half! 🎸🎤


How can our guitar lessons take you from Bedroom to Stage?...

When Jon started lessons he wanted a few pointers because he was getting pain in his wrist and shoulder when playing...

Fast forward a few years and he's now recording his own music, and has played to crowds of over 200 people at our gigs.

Each year we host our 'Big Gig' for the students of our guitar school.... And Jon's family come along and can see just how much progress he's making with his playing.

The guitar is meant to be played...

if you're stuck at home practising the same old thing over and over contact us today for a free first lesson.


Having fun rocking out at one of our kids guitar events 🎸🎸


Another lovely review from one of our students ✨⁣

If you (or your child) are interested in finding out more about how we can help with your guitar playing, get in touch today to talk with one of our friendly team of guitar teachers 🎸⁣

Just DM us or call us today on 02031434809 📞


This is our student Nikush, performing "One Week". Doing some simple strumming and singing with a couple of open chords.⁣

Fast forward to the future… after some hard work and help from his teachers… he's singing and playing Californication! Impressive 🎸⁣

Nikush has always blown us away with his commitment to learning… and his enthusiastic attitude toward the guitar.⁣

We couldn't be more proud of him! ✨⁣

If you or your child is interested in learning the guitar, get in touch today to find out how we can help! ⁣

For The Frustrated Guitarist...

For some people youtube and online lessons work... good for them.

That wasn’t me... I was stuck and didn’t know what to work on or practise.

There was just too much noise... too many videos.

I didn’t know what order the information should go in... And didn’t know why I didn’t understand things.
