Guitar Lessons Northampton

Due to the events of 2020 The Guitar Ninja has refocussed to online lessons.

The Guitar Ninja offers a range of ways to learn to play the guitar. Our guitar lessons are shaped for your desired guitar journey. If you want to learn your favourite songs, develop an understanding of music, be the guitarist in a rock band, or even be a YouTube shredder!

Hey I’m Rory. I’ve been teaching guitar for over 15 years to students from 8 to 80+. I love all styles of music but have a slight preference for rock and metal genres. I love to get nerdy about how music works, what makes it fun, and what emotions we can draw from our music. And love passing this knowledge on to my students.

I offer:

private guitar lessons

Group Guitar Clubs

Guitar Ninja Gradings

An online Guitar Academy

Due to Covid our services are currently all running over video calls for the safety of everyone involved.


Private Guitar Lessons

Private lessons are available through one to one Skype calls. The lessons last for 40mins and are adapted to each student to fit your desired guitar goals. 

Support documents will be sent in the chat for you to save/download and print if you wish.

In the lessons you will learn a range of guitar knowledge, techniques, songs/riffs and the basics of reading guitar music (TAB). along with the option to grade through our coloured guitar strap system.

I teach from 8 years old, have a Fully Enhanced DBS, and ask for parents to be around for the first few sessions (though you are welcome to be there throughout every lesson)

Lessons must be booked and paid for in advance. You can book and pay per lesson at £25 per lesson, or sign up as a member for £80 per month. This is set up as a direct debit and effectively you pay for 38.4 lessons a year. As a member however you are guaranteed to have a minimum of 40 sessions and the last few years all members have received at least 47 meaning they got 8 and a half free lessons!

You can start by paying per lesson to see if you enjoy my teaching style etc. before committing to the full membership.

Membership is also a pay in advance (most use the 1st of the month) and is only a 1 month notice to cancel, with no additional tie ins.

There is also options for joint lessons if you and a friend or family member are both wanting to learn and at a similar level.

Lesson slots are usually fully booked, but to see if there are any spaces available or to be added to a waiting list please contact us here

The guitar clubs are run over zoom. For security reasons, each club has a unique meeting link that is sent to you(the members) on WhatsApp within the last 5 minutes before the clubs start.

Guitar Ninja Gradings

Purple strap guitar grade

Our Guitar Ninja grades are offered to all guitar ninja students, be that in private lessons, clubs or the online academy.

The grades are based on the Martial art belt system, meaning the darker the colour the higher the grade. (the order of the straps is shown at the top of this page)

To learn more about our grades and how to book on please visit the grading page here


Other benefits of learning with us

When the world is open and gatherings are an option, we throw large student performances to give students of all ages and backgrounds the chance to gain some on stage experience.

We often end up with discounts on known guitar brands and more at the shows as well!

All students are also welcome to join our Whatsapp groups and facebook group just to talk about the progress, network with other guitar students, and just share the passion for music and learning. You can also use these to ask the teachers for advice between lessons/clubs.
