About The Guitar Social

What is The Guitar Social
The Guitar Social is a music School that delivers online learning, real world jams, events and holidays. We are part school, part community, part underground secret music society. We love beginners. We love advanced players. Our oldest member is 98. Our youngest is 17. 

How this works
Once you have taken a Patreon Membership you can head to www.theguitarsocial.com and start booking all the courses and workshops you like, if you took the £20 a month option, or all the events you like if you took the £10 a month option. 

If you're stoney ass broke
The Guitar Social is run by a life long musician. We know what it is to be broke, which is why we do courses and give away instruments for free to adults out of work owing to ill health. See www.musicprescribed.com for more information. 

Some interesting facts about The Guitar Social 
  • The Guitar Social started in 2014 with one class in a pub in Camden for ten people. At that point the Guitar Social's founder, Thomas Binns (writing this himself in third person so as to seem more important) had £30 in the bank and was all out of life options.
  • Within six months The Guitar Social was one of the biggest providers of face to face guitar tuition in the UK and the number one provider in London. All of this while we languished on page 9 of google. We're pretty proud of this fact. 
  • Within three months of opening, The Guitar Social started buying guitars and providing tuition for some of Londons most isolated and vulnerable people. To date we have given away over four hundred guitars and thousands of hours of tuition. 
  • In 2019 we set the world record for the worlds longest Guitar Class at 24 hours and six minutes, teaching over 200 people in one session. This raised over fifty thousand pounds, all of which we have spent on growing our charitable activities and ploughed into a CIC directed by Thomas (still me writing) called Music.Prescribed. 
  • We are the UK's leading specialist in teaching blind people guitar. This is good news for you, because if we can teach blind people... 
  • The Guitar Social has a secret manifesto through which we guide ourselves which includes some of the following points; anyone can play guitar;  every song, every voice deserves to be heard; every player is valid; music is a gift that insists on being shared; music is better when shared; as we grow, we are duty bound to connect our community and then there's some other stuff but I'll leave that there. 

...there's loads more, the best way to discover what we do, and what we can do for you, is to just take the plunge and get involved.
