Why Choose Us?
When our students learn to play guitar, they may not know it. But they are also picking up other skills and virtues they did not know they were gaining.
These virtues are some that our company was founded on. Both our students and instructors are bound to display these virtues each and every day. Again, most of the time without realizing they are doing it
When you learn to play guitar, there can be times that are frustrating. Perhaps you aren’t learning as fast as you dreamed. Remember, this is not an overnight process by any means. Or perhaps there is a particular technique or song you just can't seem to get quite right. That’s ok! It has happened to all of us including our wonderful staff!
In times like these, this requires patience. Not only with your guitar teacher, but with yourself. As they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither are your guitar skills.
Responsibility is a key virtue to all students regardless of the subject matter. You must stay responsible as you show up to every lesson on time, and prepared to learn! As a student you also have homework, that’s right homework!
Students only have an average of thirty minutes with their instructors. Unfortunately, that isn’t much! Most of your greatest personal achievements will be accomplished right at home. This can be as you practice new songs and new material each week. That can seem like hard work!
What To Expect?
So if we expect all this from our students you may be wondering what you can expect from us? Well, the exact same! Our instructors live each of these virtues each and every day. Not only while they teach, but while they continue mastering their instruments as well.
During your first lesson, we will first ask questions about you and guitar. Have you played guitar before, where is your skill level with music, what music do you listen to on a regular basis? This information will help us find a guitar teacher that really matches your personality as a student and fulfill your individual needs.
Next, we will review our lesson plan and give you a notebook containing all you will learn in the coming months. This will be a notebook you are required to bring with you to each lesson and bring home with you to practice on your own.
Then the real work begins. We will cover material such as music theory, how to play guitar chords, how to play guitar scales, what key a song is in, and what it means to play in that key.
Soon you will be playing along with your favorite songs and even writing your own songs if you choose. Just be patient.

Frequently Asked Questions
We have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions regarding guitar and guitar lessons for your convenience. Please review them as we may have answered some of your questions below!
Do I really need guitar lessons, or can I just learn on my own?
You are more than welcome to learn guitar on your own. There are wonderful tools online that can assist in learning how to play guitar. That being said there is are a few things learning on your own cannot give you.
Who will hold you accountable to make sure you are learning your instrument? How will you know if you are getting the correct information? Most importantly you need direct feedback from a professional! You may be picking up bad habits and techniques that will actually complicate your playing in the long run. So yes, we recommend signing up for lessons today!
What is a guitar pick and do I need one?
A guitar pick is a small tool that guitar players use to strum their guitar. They range in size as well and thickness. They are especially useful when playing the electric guitar due to fast strumming and other techniques such as palm muting. Yes, we recommend you purchase one. Don’t worry they aren’t expensive!
Will I need to change my guitar strings?
Over time your guitar strings will become worn down. They will be harder to play and not sound nearly as good as new strings. Yes, you will need to change them. But there are ways we can teach you to prolong the life of your strings. Such as washing your hands before you play your guitar to avoid dirt and grime buildup. Or cleaning your strings every week or so.
What is a guitar tuner, and do I need one?
A guitar tuner is simply a device that allows you to visually see what each individual guitar string is tuned to. There are many kinds with lights, and displays ranging from ten to hundreds of dollars. While we do teach you how to tune your instrument by ear, we highly recommend you bring one to each practice. You do not need a fancy tuner to start.
Will I need to learn music theory?
Yes in time music theory will need to be mastered. Don’t worry it’s not nearly as scary as it sounds! Music theory knowledge will help you understand what key you are in, what scales to play, and what chords you can play with each song. It is a necessity if you plan on mastering your instrument and really impressing your friends and other musicians.
