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 recital.

No matter what type of guitar lessons you are interested in, we have the teachers to help you.

While students take their music lessons in after school or work and in the evenings, we do offer day time lessons for home schooled, shift workers and the retired

Typically a student would be 7 before starting guitar lessons, due to their hand size, but some younger students start with a junior sized guitar.

For Students under 7 who want to play guitar we advise they start on Ukulele

You can start on acoustic or electric; the notes are in the same place and we have seen no difference in the ability of students to learn and progress at music on either.

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.

Further in their music studies the guitar classes include:

  • Popular songs
  • 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:

  • Rock
  • Blues
  • Jazz
  • Classical

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.
