‘If you don't have time to practice guitar today,
it's not about time: it's about priorities.’

About Mike Varden

Mike Varden is the owner and founder of the G4 Guitar School, Ennis. Mike established what was originally known as the Ennis Guitar School in 2003 as a response to what he knew was a lack of structured guitar tuition in contemporary music styles in Ireland, and particularly in the West of Ireland.

G4 Guitar School

In 2015, Ennis Guitar School joined the G4 Guitar Method network, which has become the Number 1 guitar school teaching method in the world. The highly structured step-by-step method of learning the guitar created by David Hart is based on over 30 years of experience. It guarantees greater levels of success and lowers the dropout rate of young guitar students.


Mike is a qualified second-level school teacher, graduating from UCC with a BAHDip in education. Before setting up the Ennis Guitar School, he also completed the Diploma Guitar course at the Guitar Institute (GI) in London, combining both his love of teaching and his passion for guitar. The Ennis Guitar School was originally modelled on the GI syllabus and methods before partnering with G4.
