(AGES FIVE AND UP)
Our guitar instructors teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical styles on both electric and acoustic guitars. Beginners work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory, and ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song. We employ a variety of guitar method books based on student needs and preferences, and encourage students to bring smartphones or CDs to their lessons to learn their favorite tunes.
Mandolin and Ukulele are similar instruments as the guitar, but are easier to play for young students. They are smaller and the strings are easier to press down. Plus, they sound amazing and are very popular in music right now!
