Guitar Tuition and Sales
Please note my new address for lessons is:-

Bolton Guitar Studio was established in 1976 by Simon J Lilley Alcm, Llcm, Ftcl, primarily to give guitar tuition. Due to the demand from my students I gradually began to retail guitars, music and accessories. I am now into my 35th year of trading.
I began my interest in the guitar in 1961, learning to play Bob Dylan songs, then when the Beatles and the beat group scene started I began to play the electric guitar. Like many of my generation I copied E. Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and the other guitar heroes. After hearing the great Spanish guitarist Andreas Segovia, I decided to study the classical guitar. I have toured here and abroad, played in all types of groups having gained experience in a wide range of musical styles. I have played on many recording sessions, broadcast on radio, and have also had guitar books published. I also play the Banjo, Mandolin Baroque guitar and the Lute, and can offer tuition in these instruments.
With over 35 years retailing/teaching experience and over 40 years playing experience I can offer expert, friendly advice on selecting your guitar.
