Some aspire to play in a band, some want to write and perform their own songs and some just want to play for themselves. Whatever your goals are we can help you to achieve them. Whether you just want to learn a few chords or write solos like your favorite guitarists, we can tailor lessons to suit your goals. We offer private lessons in acoustic, electric and bass guitar. Our teaching process builds a foundation, which allows our students to play all musical styles: classical, blues, jazz, rock and many others. Our lessons are structured to give the student a clear path when studying the guitar. Too many teachers jump between subjects with no real flow from lesson to lesson, ultimately resulting in the student growing frustrated with the lack of progress. Our approach combines mastery of the instrument with a solid music education that helps our students not only learn how to play but also to understand how guitar music is created. During guitar lessons students learn all aspects of music and skills to master the instrument

Guitar Lessons FAQ
Q. Do you teach children?
A. Yes. However, from experience we find children younger than 7 tend to struggle with the guitar, so we recommend starting your kids off at age 7 and up. Young guitarists should start with an acoustic guitar with nylon strings to make it easier on their fingers.
Q. Where I can get a guitar?
A. Guitars come in different sizes and budgets. For young beginners we recommend going to a store with a wide selection of guitars and asking a sales consultant to help you choose guitar of the right size. We recommend Guitar Center, which offers used and new instruments, for most guitar purchases. If you know exactly what you are looking for, you can shop online. Our instructors can help you choose the right instrument.
Q. I’ve always dreamed of playing a particular song. Can you help me?
A. Sure. We will work with you on your favorite songs and styles.
