Our Approach to Guitar & Ukulele Lessons
We strive to ensure that all of our students acquire the fundamentals necessary to become literate musicians, so music reading/writing skills, in both tablature and standard notation as appropriate, and relevant music theory are often incorporated organically during lessons. For students learning guitar to accompany a singer or themselves, our instructors can also provide guidance with accompanying technique, breath control while playing, and elements of songwriting.
