Guitar Tuition Books

Tutorial books are a brilliant way to help you practice and develop away from the classroom and can always be on hand when you have a little time at home. These sheet music tutorial books in our collection will also make a great gift if you have a budding guitarist amongst your friends or family. We are sure that they will be delighted that you are supporting their efforts.

Some musicians learn to master their instrument by investing in lessons. Others would characterise themselves as self-taught, but of course what this really means is independent learning, as it would be extremely difficult to learn to play the guitar and develop technique without the assistance of others. One way that you can benefit from the expertise of accomplished musicians is by investing in good guitar tutorial books.

At London Guitar Studio we have an impressive range of guitar tutorial books for you to choose from. Whether you are a complete beginner or are looking to take things to the next level you will find books and complete series of books which are designed to help you enhance your skills at your own pace. The tutorials can be used to teach yourself or used to back up the lessons that you take. Face to face lessons with a teacher are always helpful as they can be tailored to you and will include valuable feedback and guidance, however guitar tutorial books also have their place as they can also be a great asset.

Our great selection of tutorial books includes Pumping Nylon, a landmark book by world class classical guitarist Scott Tennant. This best seller combines the information you need with great humour to make learning a pleasure and features a variety of musical works to play. This is a comprehensive guitar technique handbook for the classical guitarist.

We also offer the impressive Get into Classical Guitar series. These books are terrific companions for both beginners and improvers of all ages. You may also benefit from the Guitar Basics series which includes musical accompaniment on CDs. The Guitarist's Way series of books is designed to help musicians who are taking their first steps. You should also consider investing in The Complete Guitar Player series if you are looking for valuable assistance partnered by a comprehensive selection of music to work with.
