Guitar 4 all moved to Johannesburg in 2001 where it has grown from strength to strength through the years.

How We Teach
You come to class once a week for an hour-long group lesson, over a period of 12 weeks. Select a day and time-slot that suits you. Generally, lessons are repeated twice a week, which offers you the added advantage of being able to attend an alternative timeslot for whatever reasons. This is very convenient should you miss a lesson.
The Guitar4All teaching method
In each class you have two teachers who work with the students, so nobody gets left behind. Don’t you worry we watch you like hawks!
The Course CD acts as your “24-hour” teacher when you are away from the classroom. All the techniques taught in the classroom are explained and demonstrated on the CD.
The Course CD contextualises all the lessons we teach in the class, by getting the student to apply a specific technique to a specific song. In effect, it supplies the “playing field” for the students to apply what they have learned from their teachers.
The Course CD acts as your “24-hour” teacher when you are away from the classroom.
The Course CD acts as a permanent reference. It can be used for the revision of techniques at any time.
Because Guitar 4 All courses have the “group dynamic” the individual student works harder during the week, to keep up with his or her classmates. There’s nothing like a bit of healthy competition…
