Galway musician Dave Donoghue is hoping to break a world record this April by hosting the world’s longest guitar lesson. The talented and qualified guitar teacher, who runs Kaizen Guitar in Galway, is aiming to raise funds for Jigsaw Galway whilst strumming out for 24 hours.

The Guitarathon is an Official Guinness World Record attempt that will take place with over 400 people on Friday 14 April in Monroe’s Side Bar in Galway’s Westend. The entire event will take place over 24 hours, featuring 24 different hour-long lessons and there will be 20 students per class.

The Guitarathon is looking for musicians, from ultimate novices to the advanced, to take part in this world record attempt.

All guitars will be provided so it could act as the perfect time for people to take that first guitar lesson. Children from 10 years and up are invited as well to take part in the day sessions.

Set up in 2012, Kaizen Guitar has been aiming to improve the quality of lives around the world by helping people realise their true potential.

“We intend to play a significant role in the future of guitar education, making it as fun and as accessible as possible for all ages and abilities. It’s all about the individual and what their interests and passions are.

Kaizen is the practice of continuous improvement. It’s all about enjoyment and learning through the persons interests be it sport, reading, music or art,” explained Dave.
