Our guitar lessons include acoustic, electric, bass guitar and even ukulele. We have an excellent guitar teaching staff that teach guitar lessons in many styles including rock, jazz, classical, pop, and chording. Many of our teachers actively perform in bands. Our guitar teachers have college or university music degrees so they know how to teach the proper theory and technique no matter if a student is interested in metal or in classical playing styles. Guitar lessons at our schools are enhanced by the opportunity of learning how to perform with other musicians in a rock band setting put together by the instructors or how to perform solo in one of our recitals. No matter what type of guitar lessons you are interested in, we have the teachers to help you. Typically a student would be 7 years old before starting guitar lessons, due to their hand size, but some younger students start with a junior sized guitar. Our private guitar lessons are one-on-one instruction and lesson lengths are 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour.

Our introductory guitar lessons are meant for students who are motivated by, or just enjoy working as part of a team. This is an exploratory class on the guitar to make sure that the child likes this particular instrument. The social interaction helps these students stay motivated and challenged in a supportive, friendly environment. Each class is a 30 or 45 minute session and is limited to just 5 students per class. The class room is set up as a guitar workshop with each student bringing his or her own guitar to the class each week. Students can choose either acoustic or electric guitars for their class. Students will either progress into the next group level or into private lessons. Introductory guitar classes are offered for students ages 7-10.
