DAYTIME GUITAR LESSONS FOR SCHOOLS
For beginners and intermediates
Zylo guitar lessons are a fantastic introduction to guitar playing. We believe that children are more motivated when they're learning things they love, so our lessons offer grading whilst incorporating current, popular music. Our fun, engaging tutors even encourage creativity, helping children write and learn pieces that they'll be proud to show off to friends and family. It's not just about playing either; learning an instrument is known to help children improve their academic and social skills as well as refining discipline and patience and boosting self-esteem! Each lesson is built around our club motto: Play, Progress, Perform.
- PLAY: Learning an instrument should be fun so our lessons are relaxed, modern and promote a safe, exciting learning environment.
- PROGRESS: We recognise that there are many elements to learning guitar so we offer a potent mix of grading, current music and creativity. By keeping children inspired, we keep them on track!
- PERFORM: Children perform to each other at lessons and are frequently offered an opportunity to show off in school assemblies.

Whether they're serious about becoming the next Slash or just testing the water and trying something new, our guitar lessons offer something fun and beneficial for any child. They last 30 minutes, take place during the school day and are limited to 5 children per lesson to ensure that we can give each child who attends plenty of personal attention. By offering children the opportunity to learn guitar at school, we hope to offer hundreds access to the many benefits playing an instrument provides.
Our policies and systems enable our brilliant tutors to maintain a safe, fun and supportive club setting in which children can thrive. Anita Collins, a neuroscientist specialising in music education, says that “Playing music is the brain's equivalent of a full body workout". At Zylo we bring the arts to you and, in doing so, aim to extend these benefits to the widest possible range of children.
Guitar is a wonderful instrument to learn. The popularity and flexibility of its sound mean that it can be used in almost any genre of music which, in turn, makes it the perfect self-accompaniment instrument favoured by singer-songwriters the world over. It's also the perfect starting place for anyone interested in learning other string instruments down the line such as bass and ukelele. Music has been shown to help children develop teamwork and critical thinking skills... all while channeling their inner rock star!
We've been running primary school clubs since 2010 and have worked with over 1500 children across more than 35 clubs. Our fun, balanced approach takes into account our position as an introduction or 'top-up' option as well as the nature of a school club setting, allowing us to create an experience that caters to all children, not only those with an inherent interest in music. Our healthy mix of grading, modern music and creativity allows us to create an experience that children keep coming back to.
