We offer all types of guitar lessons: acoustic, electric, classical, Suzuki, rock, blues, jazz and everything in between! Here are a few common questions answered:

At our school, we've had students as young as four to a student in their eighties!
We teach all styles of guitar! Suzuki, traditional, jazz, improvisation, "by ear…" We can accommodate any age student and skill level because we have instructors ready, willing and able to meet your needs.
Absolutely! The two biggest considerations are quality and appropriate sizing (1/2, 3/4 and full size are the options). Your instructor can help you with the correct size. If you're bringing an electric guitar, don't worry about bringing an amp or cable - we have those in our teaching rooms. Need some more help?
Yes, you should know guitar is a bit more technically challenging and you might not be playing something right away. Also, your fingertips press down on the strings, leading to maybe a wee bit of soreness until your fingertips "toughen up." Keep these points in mind when you begin your lessons and don't let them discourage you!
