We take a well-rounded approach to music instruction. Whatever your goals, we start by teaching proper technique and fundamentals, developing the student into a well-rounded guitarist and musician.

With this many directions for guitarists to go in, it’s easy to see how approaches to teaching the instrument can differ greatly. Our teachers cater the lesson to each individual student’s needs while ensuring proper fundamental skills are being mastered.
