Music brings harmony to the world.

At Guitar lessons Malta we teach a variety of guitars.  From the Acoustic and classic guitar to the Electric and Ukulele.  We don’t just teach our students how to play these instruments but also ensure that we deliver the background knowledge and history of each one of them as well as the different styles of music which goes with each.

Acoustic Guitar

We start you off where most guitar courses leave you: acoustic guitar. Whether it's singing at home, church, or around a campfire, there's no better way to provide accompaniment than good 'ol acoustic guitar.

Classical & Fingerstyle Guitar

From the fun and upbeat Merle Travis Technique to the soft beauty of classical guitar, you will learn the secrets of great fingerstyle and stylish arpeggios.

Acoustic Guitar

Electric & Rock Guitar

Power chords, power riffs, pedal effects, distortion, and more. This is the heart of Rock & Roll, and you'll learn all of it. From hammer-ons and pull-offs to advanced bends and the Eddie Van Halen Technique, all the hot electric guitar stuff is here too. You'll learn the musical concepts behind these techniques and discover how to use them in real playing and soloing situations, just like the pros. You'll have a blast and your friends will be blown away by the things you'll be playing with your backing tracks.


If you’ve always wanted to learn an instrument but never got around to it until now, you’ve made a great choice with the ukulele! With only four strings, it’s the perfect instrument for budding musicians. But, as with any instrument, there will be challenges to overcome as you learn.

Blues Guitar

Is there anything cooler than a hot blues solo? With us, you'll be playing them in no time. You will learn the blues notes, the blues chord progression, how it all works with minor pentatonics (don't worry... it'll make sense when you get there!), and of course—how to construct a great blues solo. Once again, you'll have a blast jamming along with your backing tracks.

Jazz Guitar

Love jazz? We've got you covered. You will learn not only the popular jazz chords and chord progressions, but also how to "jazz up" the regular chord progressions you already know.

R&B and Funk Guitar

Playing great Funk and R&B is all about muting techniques and how to use them with rhythm and style. It's not too hard to learn and whole lot of fun to play. Knowing a few good Funk techniques will also add a lot to your soloing skills.

Group Lessons

Music reading

The first benefit, in the process of reading music, is that a guitar student will learn where every note is placed on the guitar. As a trained guitarist, I find that it is helpful, when playing with other musicians, to be aware of these placements in the event that those who are playing with me can direct me by calling out the changes at the appropriate time. If the bass player or another guitarist gives me a key, I have the acquired knowledge that will allow me to play a lead that will fit in with that key, because I know where the root note, or, {the first note of a scale} is and from there I can determine which scale I want to play.

Equally important to this matter is the fact that the ability to read music teaches the student, by assigning a time value to each given note, how to develop the discipline of counting out whole, half, quarter, eighth, and sixteenth notes, which in turn allows the guitarist to create musical nuances that are important when playing both rhythm and lead.
After many hours of reading music, rhythm becomes intrinsic and listening skills improve because stimulating the visual sense as well as the auditory reinforces the guitarist’s musicality. After all, music is a language and like any language to be fully understood, it must be read, practiced, and written.

Composition, or the process of writing music, is, I believe, the centre that exists at the very core of any musical artist, and while it is not necessary to know how to read or how to write musical notation, the ability to do so will inherently enhance a guitarist’s original works. Structuring music on a piece of paper or placing notes on a computer program gives the writer the visual aid of precision. It ensures that time signatures and key signatures are being obeyed within the constraints that he/she defines at the beginning of the composition. In the process of recording, the writing of any musical notation will reveal itself as a check and balance to ensure the quality of the final product.

The discipline of reading musical notation is a skill well-worth learning for any guitarist. Even the great Jimmy Page took brief lessons, if for no other reason than to play written music as a hired studio musician, and perhaps he felt, as I do, that musical notation is the universal language that allows musicians to communicate and create great works of art in harmonious fashion.

Other lessons

Sometimes, children need that extra help at home when practicing an instrument or any other subject. 

Throughout the years we found out that such help gives your child more possibilities to continue learning on their own later on.

You, as a parent, can come with your little one for the lesson so that you will be able to help your child at home.

The benefits of this activity are mainly that the child is learning a musical instrument and that you are both spending some quality time together.

Role of the Bassist in a band

The bass player has the most crucial role in the band. Everyone in the group depends on the bassist's subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) lead. If the bassist makes a mistake, everyone in the band and the audience will instantly know that something is wrong.

A bassist is responsible for linking the harmony of a song with a distinctive rhythm (groove). This link contributes to the feel, or style, of the music. Feel or style determines whether a song is rock, jazz, Latin, or anything else. Any bass player has to be able to emulate any bassist in any style and, at the same time, be creative — using own notes and ideas!

Moving the song along

Every song is made up of chords that are special to that tune, and all the notes in the tune relate to the sounds of those chords. In some songs, all the chords are the same, and so all the notes relate to that one chord sound, making such songs easy to play. Most songs, however, have different kinds of chords in them; in these, the first group of notes in the tune relates to the first chord and has one kind of sound; the next group of notes relates to another chord sound; and so on throughout the song.

By playing one note at a time in a rhythmic fashion, you (as a bass player) propel the music along. You'll set up each chord for the other players in your band by choosing notes that lead smoothly from one chord sound to the next.

Bass lines can vary quite greatly from one genre of music to another, but all bassists still provide the same role: that of creating a foundation, often with a drummer, for the other instruments to layer their parts over (excluding some virtuoso bassist solo albums where the bass is also playing the melody). It doesn’t matter if it is a fairly prominent funk bass line or the bassist is just simply following the rhythm guitarist’s chord progression, the role is still the same.

Maintaining the Pulse

Maintaining the pulse of a song is one of the most basic aspects of the rhythm section. What the bassist plays can have a pretty vast effect on the impression a song actually gives.

Every musician should be able to keep proper rhythmic timing, not just those who learn bass guitar or drums. While it is generally much more noticeable when the rhythm section is out of time, it doesn’t excuse lead guitarists or singers from learning to properly time their parts.

The rhythm section often helps to establish many of the traits that make a song actually sound like a particular genre. This is especially true for more bass focused genres like rock, pop, funk jazz or reggae, and can often be seen in hybrid genre bands. For example, most of the reason the Red Hot Chili Peppers is considered a funk inspired band is because of the funk influenced bass lines that are quite commonly used in many of their songs.

However, it doesn’t necessarily have to be the bassist who makes those types of contributions. The Police are also a funk inspired rock band, but their bass lines were generally straight forward rock lines. It was the rhythm guitarist and drummer that gave the more funk feeling to many of the songs. It is still the rhythm section, but the bass is usually just one of the instruments contributing to the rhythm of a song.

While fairly uncommon, there are some songs out there that are simply just a bass. Not surprisingly these are almost exclusively written by virtuoso bassists with a wide enough range of techniques and musical knowledge to often play both the rhythm and melody at the same time, or at least be able to fairly seamlessly drop between the two. Sometimes they are supported by a drummer or singer, but these are usually fairly minor contributions in these types of songs.

These are almost exclusively bassists that have their bass guitar lessons completely down and then moved on and expanded to learning theory or how other instruments in a band function, but it does go to show that the bass is capable of a lot with a lot of practice and dedication.
