Musician and music teacher Rik Roberts began offering group guitar classes for adults in both Poynton, Cheshire and Chorlton, Manchester at the beginning of 2013. Both were successful, but Poynton out-performed Chorlton, so it was here in 2014 that Rik decided to establish his music class brand exclusively for adults - Poynton Music School - at the back of a 19th century former school building. He subsequently added ukulele classes, a series of one-off workshops and 1 to 1 tuition in guitar, ukulele and banjo.

The aim is to encourage more adults to participate in music-making, enriching lives and bringing people together socially.

The guitar/ukulele classes and workshops are amongst the very few exclusively for adults in the country. With all classes, participants have fun, enjoy playing with others, wind down at the end of the day with some good songs, whilst learning new skills, gaining confidence and developing as a player.
