Guitar making

We are very sorry but the guitar making course is currently suspended until further notice

The Cambridge Violin Makers started guitar making classes in January 2014.  Nearly six years later and several pupils have completed their first instruments.  Prospective new pupils will initially be able to make a Martin style steel strung acoustic guitar. In the future we intend to offer further options including classical guitar and cavaquinho.

The class runs on Tuesday evenings from 5.30pm - 9pm and is currently taught by Jamie Swannell.

Fees

The fee for each term is £220 for a total of forty hours tuition. Materials are extra and typically would require initially an outlay of £150-£250 for all the timber and a further £100-£150 for the fittings. 

Pupils can expect to make a guitar in approximately two years.
