You are welcome to share a room at Guitar Breaks, depending on the workshop location and the hotel. You can either share with a guitar playing friend or acquaintance to join you. Alternatively you can share with another guitarist who is attending the workshop and also wishes to share.
Or if you wish, you can invite your non-playing partner to join you. Check the pricing for each workshop to ensure you are booking each person correctly.
Guitar Breaks is for players who love the guitar and guitar equipment and want to spend time with like-minded people in beautiful and fun surroundings. Perhaps you have been playing for 1-2 years and already know your open chords, pentatonic scales and can play some melodies. Maybe you have been playing the guitar on and off for many years, can play bar chords and some solos, but feel that you have yet to fully develop your potential. In the end we are all here because we love the guitar! If you have any concerns at all about a workshops suitability, please do not hesitate to contact us. We love to chat!
Yes, you should. We do have a small stock of electric and acoustic guitars which may be rented for the duration of your stay, but it is better if you bring your own. If you feel you need to rent an instrument, please contact us immediately: email@example.com. First come, first served…
It’s a good idea to bring something that you particularly like to use. For example if you like specific strings or gauges. We do have a stock of general items and we can always pop to the local music store for specifics!
We don’t supply practise amps for the obvious reasons (!). We do recommend you bring a headphone amp for the workshop sessions and also for practising outside of workshops. There are plenty of options available on the market: www.guitarworld.com/features/best-headphone-amp-for-guitar
Each day has a focussed and themed morning session that involves all guitarists. There may be one group or two depending on numbers. Then there is a break for some lunch. The afternoon may be made up of breakout sessions whereby our special guests and staff members are available to discuss the morning’s session in more detail, or do something completely different! We usually have a round up and Q&A at the end of the day.
Yes, each venue we use can accommodate a number of dietary requirements. If you wish to discuss this further please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of the team will get straight back to you.
Our venues and the staff at Guitar Breaks do make all reasonable adjustments for people with mobility issues. Of course, all venues are different, so it is definitely worth contacting us to discuss prior to booking: email@example.com
If you wish to bring your partner with you, they are more than welcome. Either choose the non-guitar option in the menu, or contact us to discuss further. We can also chat about the type of activities that may be available to them during their stay.
