LGMA Website

The Lanarkshire Guitar & Mandolin Association was formed in 1999 to promote mandolin and guitar music in the Lanarkshire area. Since then the LGMA has been running a range of musical activities including a Guitar & Mandolin orchestra, a youth Guitar & Mandolin Orchestra and a range of classes, courses and workshops for young people and adults, including mandolin classes and classical guitar classes.The LGMA has also been running very successful Rock and Pop Guitar Classes for young people since January 2006. There are now three classes, all on Thursday evenings in Trinity Church, and the target age group is 12 to 17 year-olds. The ‘A’ class is a beginners class (at 6-30pm), the ‘B’ class is intermediate level (7-30pm), and the ‘C’ class is an advanced class (8-30pm). The lead tutor is Calum Harbison, and there are assistant tutors (always younger people) who are trainees gaining experience as guitar tutors. The ‘A’ and ‘B’ classes are designed for acoustic or electric guitars, although an electric guitar is necessary for ‘C’ class members. Young people can move up through the different classes as they progress. In the classes the young people learn from the basics of rock / pop guitar through to more advanced techniques. We work mainly with guitar tab. and chord windows, and we cover music from classic rock acts (eg.- Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie etc.) through to more recent music (Green Day, Kaiser Chiefs, Kings of Leon, Biffy Clyro etc.).

We normally run classes in three terms of 10 weeks throughout the year. At the moment the cost is £40 for a block of 10 weeks. The classes are normally well subscribed with a waiting list, although there are sometimes a few spaces for new members. Anybody interested or requiring further information should contact Calum Harbison on (01698) 425326.
