What you can expect from lessons with JAHM Guitar Academy


Who can learn guitar or bass?

Anyone can play guitar! Our teachers teach students of all ages and abilities. Our youngest student is 6 years old, and the oldest is in his 60's. At JAHM we can take you right through from complete beginner to advanced and can also help you through grades (or not - no pressure, it's up to you!).

Where do lessons take place?

JAHM are currently offering lessons at JAHM Academy's studio in Farnham, Surrey. We also offer online lessons on FaceTime from anywhere in the world!

How often are the lessons?

Face 2 Face lessons are offered on a weekly basis. We offer lessons during the day as well as evenings and weekends. We occasionally offer more flexible plans for lessons at off-peak times and during school holidays, so please contact us to discuss this.

Online lessons are offered as one off lessons, monthly, weekly - you choose!

How long do lessons last?

Lessons last between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on your preferences or the ages of children.

What styles of music will I learn?

Our teachers teach many styles of bass and guitar including rock and pop, funk, classical, country,  jazz and blues, as well as improvisation and music theory.

How much do lessons cost?

Individual lessons (face2face or Online) cost £18 for 30 minutes or £36 for 60 minutes. Please get in touch for price information about group lessons. Payment is in advance for the coming half-term. Once we find a weekly time slot that works for you, you will be invoiced for the term's lessons. Students starting mid-term will be invoiced for the remainder of the term only.

Can I buy lessons for someone else?

Yes! JAHM offer gift certificates that mean you can buy a term or half-term of lessons as a present for someone else. The recipient can contact us once you have given them the gift certificate to book into one of our groups or arrange individual lessons.

What happens if I need to cancel a lesson?

If you are unwell or something comes up and you cannot make your lesson, please contact us as soon as possible. We regret that lessons already paid for are non-refundable.

How do I choose a guitar?

Here at JAHM we can offer advice on choosing a guitar that is right for you, either in your first lessons or over the phone before we get started. A great place to start locally is Guitar Village in Farnham, who offer expert advice and have a huge range of beautiful guitars and bass guitars.

 What other services are available?

JAHM offer services that include re-stringing, setting up and repairing guitars. For these we use Reading based Luthier Julian Mullen. For a full list of guitar repair services available and prices, click get in touch.
