There is SO MUCH information (and misinformation!) on the internet about how to play guitar. If you are a beginner (or even a veteran player!), sifting through YouTube videos for legitimate private guitar lessons takes time. Our proven method of guitar instruction focuses on what works for YOU to take your playing to the next level. We take all of the guesswork out of the process and give you exactly what you need to learn and practice to meet your guitar-playing goals.
Just because someone is a great guitarist doesn’t mean that person is a good guitar teacher. We were students ourselves (and continue to be!) and understand the amount of time and money that can be wasted with the average guitar teacher. So, we decided to develop a proven method for private electric and acoustic guitar lessons based on years of research, teaching, and playing. Our certified guitar teachers have taught hundreds of people who thought they could never reach a skillful level of guitar playing. Don’t waste any more time and money. Serving Beginners to advanced kids and adults.
You don’t need special talent—whatever that is—to be an amazing guitarist. You do need the right private guitar instruction, the right coaching and training from the best guitar teachers, and a firm commitment to the learning process. With that, ANYONE can be a great player. You can make REAL PROGRESS in as little as 20 minutes of focused practice 4-5 days per week. We are with you every step of the way as your mentors and guides. Do you have 20 minutes a day to be a guitarist people want to listen to
Age has little to do with learning to play guitar. Let us be clear: You are never too old to start playing! Many of our adults are in their 70’s and 80’s and make real progress. In fact, we find our older students to be some of the most committed to their guitar lessons. And how about kids? If a child is able to hold the guitar and engage in a 50-minute guitar lesson, we have found they can develop the foundational skills needed for lifetime of musical enjoyment. It’s never too late or too early to start your guitar journey!
Yes! We teach both. We have found that the acoustic is slightly more difficult at first for beginners due to the heavier string gauge, BUT the good news is that both acoustic and electric are the same instrument as far as playing goes. The electric guitar has more to learn as far as gear and effects go.
This depends on how fast you want to progress–really. There are a lot of myths about guitar playing. We don’t deal with myths, or the limitations that most people accept. There is a high likelihood that your idea of “good” will radically change after two or three months of lessons. Most people that we teach feel like they have reached an intermediate level of guitar playing (ready to play in a band–or pursue more serious guitar studies) after a year of focused practice.
Metal, rock, hard rock, pop, blues, country, gospel, and jazz. Our main focus for the new guitarist are on foundational skills that are necessary for great playing. For more advanced students, we also have specific tracks in hard rock and metal that includes sweep picking, tapping, and high speed tapping.
We offer several different packages depending on the student’s goals and how fast the student wants to progress. Our lessons are 50 minutes long (not half hour like other music schools). We also offer special 6-week classes. During your free consultation, we’ll present our packages and help you choose a package that fits your budget as well as your goals.
