We’ve known for ages the reasons why we decided to work together as a team to build something special and to provide the best guitar lessons that we could imagine. But, we’ve never really shouted about them. Until now. We’ve decided to wear our hearts on our sleeves by publishing our own manifesto. We feel it helps express how unique our lessons are and how passionate we feel about what we do. If you support our manifesto, please share it on Facebook or Twitter and let us know what you think in the comments below:
#1 Spread Happiness
We aim to spread happiness by teaching people of all ages and abilities to play using the music that inspires them. If something isn’t enjoyable, we’re far less likely to stick with it so, whatever your aims and abilities, we’ll bring our passion for music to every lesson. We also aim to spread happiness to the wider world, that’s why £1 from every lesson we teach, goes directly into micro-loans that help people in developing countries to lift themselves out of poverty : )
#2 Provide Personalised, Exceptional & Engaging Lessons
We aim to take the stuffiness and mystery out of learning music and to create environments where you’ll be immediately comfortable, even if you’re never touched a guitar before. We don’t use the typical one-size-fits-all approach, because we believe that learning guitar is far more effective when it’s fun, engaging and planned individually around your aims, your learning style and your music. We’ll teach you to play the songs you like and use them as a vehicle to develop your technique, knowledge and overall musicality.
#3 Blow People’s Minds (With Service)
We aim to differentiate ourselves by doing something a little unconventional and innovative. This means going above and beyond what’s expected, and aiming for what we do to have real emotional impact. We’re not your average music teachers and we’re not about to let our student’s experiences be average either.
#4 Be Humble, Pursue Growth & Develop As A Team
We’re all fully-qualified, DBS checked active musicians and each hold more than 7 years experience, but if we are to stay ahead, we must continue to learn, grow and develop. Even our simple process of putting our heads together on a regular basis, to discuss learning music and share lesson ideas, allows us to pool our skills, knowledge and resources far beyond what we, or anyone else could do in isolation.
#5 Build A Community Around Playing & Learning Music
Via our regular lessons, videos, articles and interactions we aim to foster and contribute to a local community based around a love of playing & learning music. No egos, no rockstar attitudes, just a love of music, great experiences and sharing them with other like minded people.
So that’s it. Simple really. Are you with us?
