Learning Guitar Could Change Your Life for the Better, Forever

Learning Guitar Could Change Your Life For The Better, Forever

The most flexible and effective method ever for fast results, sociable music-making and performance opportunities!

  • Have you had guitar lessons or tried to teach yourself before but made slow, frustrating progress?
  • Did you get bored learning in way that felt irrelevant, uninspiring and out-of-date?
  • Would you love to learn an instrument but have no idea how this would fit into your busy life? 
  • Do you watch the musicians among your friends or on television and think “I wish I could do that”?
  • Have you always wanted to perform or play with others, but just don’t have the opportunity or the confidence?

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes” and you live in any of the following areas: Croydon, Selsdon, Waddon, Sanderstead, Purley, Addiscombe, Shirley, Coulsdon, Carshalton, Wallington or Caterham, then you have come to the right place!

My name is Vicki Workman, and at Croydon Guitar Tuition, my teachers and I have helped hundreds of students with problems like these, and many more. We understand that life is busy and to make learning fun and rewarding for you or your child, you need to see fast results and learn the music that you love. In fact, our specialism is taking beginner guitarists who can’t play a note and transforming them into great musicians who can realise all of their playing ambitions. You won’t believe how much fun learning an instrument can be!

Are You Frustrated With Your Lack Of Progress?

There are lots of reasons why people just like you give up on their guitar playing, or worse still, never find the confidence to start at all…for example…

  • Perhaps you’ve had lessons before but didn’t feel they were relevant to the kinds of music you listen to and are looking for a more personalised learning strategy
  • Maybe you’ve been teaching yourself from resources such as Youtube, tab sites, guitar magazines and DVDs, but are feeling confused and de-motivated by conflicting advice and unclear guidance
  • You might have watched your friends seem to pick things up easily and are worried that you’re just not a ‘natural’
  • Perhaps you’ve always wanted to learn guitar, but you’re worried that your busy lifestyle will get in the way of your progress…

I Can Help You Play Guitar The Way You Want To

Sure, there are many ways to learn guitar. There are even many ways to learn guitar which will work… eventually. But why not choose the method specifically designed to give you the fastest, most flexible results for maximum rewards and enjoyment?

Why You Should Learn Guitar With Me

I launched Croydon Guitar Tuition back in 2005, when I took the exciting decision to combine my love of music and teaching others with a rewarding career. Since then, I have enjoyed helping hundreds of beginner guitarists become great musicians.

In 2010 I joined the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle, a worldwide community of guitar teachers, who discuss new and innovative ways to help their students become incredible guitar players (and have a lot of fun in the process!). Since then I have gone from strength to strength, improving my knowledge and teaching skills immeasurably and, more importantly, passing all this good stuff onto my students.

In 2015, I didn’t take a summer holiday. Instead, I spent six days and nights in a hotel conference room with many of these guitar teachers at a very special Guitar Teachers’ Super Summit International, where I learnt EVEN MORE cool stuff about how to help my students become the guitar players they want to be!

Around the same time, I expanded to include our other teachers, Mike and Zak, who are bringing their own amazing skills and experience to our tuition packages. Between us, we have decades of experience as both musicians and teachers, and we love using this to help students just like you achieve their guitar playing aspirations.

We keep detailed notes on the progress of every single student so that together we can help you to track your development as a musician and achieve your playing goals, and we meet every single week to discuss and plan the best way to teach you.

What Our Students Say

Don’t just take my word for it! I am very proud to have successfully helped hundreds of guitarists go from absolute beginners to very accomplished musicians.

“I have been playing guitar for five months and can play seven songs. I think Vicki is a fantastic guitar teacher.”
-Aaryan, aged 7

“My progress has been amazing; to be able to play a recognisable tune on my guitar after such a short time is astounding.”

“Vicki’s lessons are like no music lessons I’ve had before. Within a single year of me having lessons with Vicki, I was up on stage playing “Highway to Hell” by AC/DC and “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton!”
