Tick Your Box

Have you ever wanted to play the guitar but haven’t tried?

Have you ever wanted to learn how to write a song but couldn’t?

Imagine doing both in just one magical day

This could be the day your box is ticked. Ideal for complete beginners. So, you’ve always wanted to play the guitar but, you can’t play a note as, maybe, you don’t have a guitar, you can’t read music, so you don’t know where to start. Well, it starts here where your Day Dream becomes a Dream Day. Why not come to Salisbury for the day and get started? You don’t have a guitar? Don’t worry they’re provided.


A morning of acoustic guitar playing from square one, lunch refreshments followed by an afternoon learning the very basics of songwriting., an invaluable session. Just imagine a day ending playing basic guitar and having written your first structured song. Is this all possible? The simple answer is yes.


The average cost of a basic acoustic guitar lesson is between £15 and £25 for an hour’s lesson, all very well but beginners need a crash course to get them moving along. A Tick Your Box 3 hour session and an additional 3 hour writing session in the afternoon is a simple £60 fee, that’s just £10 per hour including refreshments. Places are limited to allow one-to-one tuition from Richard so book early to avoid disappointment!


Richard is The Gold Award recipient from The British Academy of Composers & Songwriters and he’s acknowledged as one of the country’s top acoustic guitarists, so he’s well qualified to help you.
