The Tresco Guitar Retreat


Indulge your passion for the guitar on Tresco; the perfect relaxed, supportive and inspiring environment, with expert tuition from Stuart Marshall.

Our Guitar Retreats have been crafted to give you the personal time that you need to focus solely on your guitar playing, away from the usual interruptions and distractions of home.

This special event will feature two group guitar teaching sessions each day, with the afternoons free to play, roam the island or enjoy some one-to-one tuition. Plus join us for after dinner sing-a-longs and jam sessions in the bar! You’ll learn a lot, laugh a lot, make some friends and go home with a bunch of new songs and techniques to re-invigorate your practice and playing.

Enthusiasm is always more important than ability on a Guitar Retreat; whatever you are able to do now is just fine. This retreat will help you to gain confidence in your current abilities…

Stuart Marshall is a guitarist and singer /songwriter with more than 30 years experience of gigging and teaching. During the last ten years he has successfully taught hundreds of adults on his own Guitar Retreats and singing courses in the UK and abroad.

Teaching alongside Stuart will be another regular member of the Guitar Retreats teaching team, Paul Nicholas. Paul is a highly gifted player and a patient and inspiring teacher with a special knowledge of acoustic fingerstyle techniques. Between them they will answer all your questions. What they don't know about guitar playing isn't worth knowing!
