Electric Guitar Lessons

Be it Jazz, Pop, or Heavy Metal, the sound of the electric guitar is undeniably versatile in nature. 

The Music Shed's Electric Guitar Courses cater to everyone, from beginners to advanced learners. For experienced players, we would recommend private classes. However, if you're just starting out, feel free to join a beginner's group class. Our group classes are kept small, with just up to 4 people, in order to allow greater personal attention for each student.
