What will I learn?

In this course we will cover a variety of styles, genres, and techniques. We will teach you the basics of understanding the guitar and cover different techniques including rhythm, lead, and finger-picking. Each lesson will be designed to meet your specific needs and goals as a student.

You will not only learn covers of your favorite songs and solos, but gain an understanding of how they were constructed. This knowledge is incredibly beneficial to a musician as it is the first step in writing, composing, and arranging your own music. Playing acoustic guitar is a timeless, rewarding hobby and passion. Beyond playing the instrument, it is deeply satisfying to reap the benefits of self-discipline by practicing each week and getting better.

How will you teach me?

Each student will receive a personalized curriculum at the beginning of their second lesson. We will work with you to gain an understanding of what you would like to learn and how best to teach it to you. Our first lesson will help to gauge your musical interests and proficiency. Together we will create an action plan to ensure that your learning process is as seamless and fun as possible. We will set goals and milestones with each passing lesson help you achieve them.

As a new student we encourage you to choose a few songs that you’d like to learn so we can work together in learning them. We will learn about different playing techniques, scales, transposing to different keys, and various other facets of your acoustic guitar. We guarantee to work at a pace that is best suited to you. Additionally, we will provide you with guitar tablature, chord sheets, and other reference materials which will be given to you via hard-copy and available online on our website’s “Student” section.


Our primary focus is tailoring every class to each student’s specific needs. We realize that no two students are alike, which is why we work with you or your child to develop an action plan to achieve your individual goals.
