Guitar Getaways is run by Paul Dhiman.

in late 1989, Paul studied at the Guitar Institute and Basstech, a pioneering electric guitar and bass school, and subsequently worked for the company as it grew from one small room, to premises on four floors. In his roles as Deputy Director, and Director of Operations, Paul had an important role in establishing one of the first Bachelor degrees in Popular Music Performance.

Paul moved to Cornwall in 2004 to work in management for the University of Exeter, and helped establish their new campus in Cornwall.


Following this, Guitar Getaways was founded in 2007, and ran its first summer course in 2008. Masterclasses with top name artists followed in late 2008 and early 2009.

Our aim is to deliver the highest quality hands on guitar tuition events in a laid back style, in fantastic venues. The idea behind a Guitar Getaway is to leave your other commitments behind and devote yourself to guitar playing.
