Our private guitar lessons include acoustic and electric guitar. We have an excellent guitar teaching staff and teach guitar lessons in everything from rock to jazz, classical to pop.
All of our guitar students learn to read music and play chords.
All of our teachers actively perform in and around the city. Our guitar teachers have college or university music degrees so they know the proper theory and technique no matter what kind of music the student is ultimately interested in. Guitar lessons at our school are enhanced by the opportunity to perform in our recitals.
No matter what type of guitar lessons you are interested in, we have the teachers to help you.

Our guitar students start off by learning the basics like how to hold the guitar, the parts of the guitar, how to hold the pick, when to use a strap and how to read music. Later on, the guitar student learns chords and simple songs using both chord and note reading.

Scales for use in lead guitar playing
Finger style and hybrid styles of right hand technique
and they are exposed to other kinds of music like:
If you have already been playing the guitar for a while we will access where you are now and teach you from that point.
For our advanced guitar students we have teachers who can prepare them for university music program entrance and we have mature teachers so adult students can feel comfortable.
Adult students also have more flexibility in what areas they cover first.
We get asked all the time for advice on buying guitars since we don’t sell guitars we can give truthful, unbiased advice. So there is an article on buying that first guitar.
