Posted on June 21, 2017 by Matt Park There have been 2 comment(s)

Bournemouth Guitar Orchestra
The Bournemouth Guitar Orchestra is a creative and community minded project, currently recruiting guitarists from all styles and genres.

The BGO launched on Monday the 5th of June 2017 at Absolute Music 7pm – 9.30pm. After a successful launch we continue to meet every first monday of the month.

The sessions are a blend of rehearsing a range of exciting pieces from all genres, as well as workshops on specific techniques and inspirational approaches.

If you are a guitarist you will want to be a member of The Bournemouth Guitar Orchestra!
The first session is £10 – simply register by emailing [email protected]


How do I join?
Simply drop us an email to say hello :) [email protected]

How good do I need to be?
If you are able to play a handful of chords, maybe a scale or two, have played with others before, tune your own guitar (tuners are welcome!) you will be just fine. The pieces are divided into a whole range of parts that means there is space for most abilities. If you feel you are not ready to join us yet, or you have never played with others before perhaps try our weekly sessions instead to give you a chance to play with others more? Click here to find out more .

How old do I need to be?
18 plus.

How much does it cost?
The introductory session is £10. After that membership is £40 per quarter (3months).

I cant read music ahhhh!?
No problem at all! However you learn songs is fine by us.

Do I need to learn anything in advance?
No. Everyone will start in the same position in the first session. All members, after the first session, are required to sign up for life time membership (about £10) Where we source all our music. This will give you access to an amazingly powerful learning tool.

Where is it held?
The session is held on the first monday of the month at Absolute Music – Absolute Music Solutions Ltd – Units 3-5 Knighton Heath Estate –
855 Ringwood Road – Bournemouth – Dorset – BH11 8NE

Can I bring an Electric?
Of course you can! All types of guitar are welcome. If bringing an elecrtic please bring amp and leads.

  • Hi I live ina bit too far from Bournemouth to become a member but I have written quite a lot of music for guitar ensemble including a large piece for electric guitars. it isn't too tricky but does need tremolo picking and I was wondering if you might be kind enough to consider performing it?
