Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias offer regular one-to-one classical guitar tuition for children and adults of all ages and abilities.
We advise every new student to come for a consultation lesson in which you will be able to discuss and set goals with your tutor. Students are given the opportunity to sit practical exams of the ABRSM or Trinity College London examination Boards.
By becoming a Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias student, you will benefit from having various performance opportunities throughout the year at informal concerts such as ‘Llwyfan Cerdd’ where family members and friends are welcome to come along to enjoy your progress. Students are encouraged and supported to take part at these concerts from an early stage.
Further opportunities can include the benefit of receiving tuition from renowned musicians in Master Classes, Workshops and Ensembles. The Friends of Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias have established a Bursary Scheme to help young students with tuition costs. Any student under the age of 25 is welcome to apply.
