Guitar Lessons For Children And Adults


Choose from group guitar lab classes for beginners, private guitar, ukulele and bass lessons.

This is an incredibly fun music experience that will have the student coming back for more.

Researchers agree that learning to play an instrument improves test scores, helps students with higher math achievement, builds self confidence, improves coordination and problem-solving, increases fine motor development and much more – including fostering the basic intrinsic value of developing a love and joy for the arts and music.

Performances are available for each level of study.

Guitar Lab Classes

Two age groups offered:
7-11 year olds, 12-16 years old

These are introductory guitar classes for beginners with up to six students in each class. We focus on learning to tune the guitar, reading music, melody playing, chords and strumming, basic skills and techniques, and ensemble playing. Students use a songbook plus a music workbook. Since the classes are designed for students to progress at their own pace, the teacher helps each student individually for a portion of the class, and we also play together in ensemble (great for building listening skills and steady rhythm). Parent Performance Days are scheduled throughout the year, and the teacher will assess the student’s progress and recommend private guitar lessons at the appropriate time. Students bring their acoustic or electric guitar to class.

Guitar Lab Basic Class Activities:

55 Minute Class, 5 Minutes Parent Time Class Materials: Guitar Song Book, Chord Book, Ensemble Book, Note speller/Theory Book.

  • Tuning – developing an ear for tuning, using a tuner, etc.
  • Technique, warm-ups, chords, strumming
  • Individual learning and assignments at students level
  • Workbook at the table (theory book, or guitar note speller)
  • Review songs in books with teacher accompaniment or CD
  • Jam, chart out pop songs, flash card games, etc.
  • Parent questions and assignment clarification

Classes are designed for students to progress at their own pace. Students receive supplementary books during the year when they are ready to move ahead.

PRIVATE GUITAR LESSONS

In a private guitar lesson, the teacher has the opportunity to help the student individually for the entire lesson time, and structures each lesson personally for the student depending on their skill level and goals. We teach all styles of music, from the traditional method series teaching approach, to playing by ear and improvisation, through the classics, popular, blues, jazz, ragtime, contemporary – you name it!
