It is recommended that pupils attend their guitar lessons with the following items:
A suitable three quarter size nylon strung guitar; I would recommend the model ‘Palma’ available for around £49.00 or Admira Alba ADM100 3/4 size for £99.00. I also recommend the book ‘Enjoy Playing the Guitar Book 1 by Debbie Cracknell’.
Both items can be purchased from Allegro Music, 95 High Street, Chelmsford CM1 1DX; telephone 01245 283527;e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org;website www.allegromusic.co.uk/allegro-music-chelmsford/
If you would prefer to hire a guitar then please contact Essex Music Services; telephone 01206 798788; e-mail email@example.com or visit their website www.essex.gov.uk for details of their hire scheme. Again please specify that you require a three quarter size nylon strung guitar.
I highly recommend that early stage students start with a nylon strung acoustic guitar; steel strung acoustic or electric guitars are much harder for young fingers to get used to and may be better suited when they have gained more experience and settled in to their chosen musical path.
