Learn By Doing

Our Approach to guitar lessons and bass guitar lessons is all about getting students to start playing guitar from day one! It doesn’t always mean playing full-blown chords or songs, but depending on the student’s age, we like to get them to start actually experiencing what it feels like to strum the guitar and begging to experience how fun and exciting it is.

Beyond the Books

Our instructors go far beyond the nuts and bolts of playing guitar like notes, scales, and chords. We do make fundamentals the anchor of all of our guitar lessons but we also make sure we give the students time to actually apply it to the guitar or bass guitar and learn about the fun of making music and playing guitar or bass guitar!
