“My daughter Anabel was so lucky to start with Glee Music Academy. She is teaching her how to use her voice without harming it. My daughter has been taking vocal lessons for two years with another teacher and she hasn’t had any major results like she had in a few months. Thank you Glee Music Academy!”
“The thing I like most about Glee is the positive atmosphere. I have older children in dance and sometimes the atmosphere is so competitive between the kids. It is so nice to be involved in a program that teaches and promotes the kids to support one another. Huge thumbs up from our family!”
“GOOD NEWS! I was accepted to both Musical Theatre and Acting conservatories at OCSA! I want to thank you for all of your help, support, kindness and time. I truly couldn’t have done it without all your hard work. THANK YOU SO MUCH!”
“The teacher could tell my teen was creative and wrote songs so her assignment this week was to write a song on her ukulele. I couldn’t be more thrilled.”
“I can’t thank you enough for your help with my granddaughter’s audition. It’s just what she needed, and she came back full of enthusiasm and confidence. You went above and beyond. She couldn’t have had a better professional coach.”
Frequently GET STARTED
What Age Should My Child Start Guitar Lessons?
The minimum age recommended for starting guitar lessons is 7 years old. Due to the thickness of the strings and fine motor skills needed to play the instrument, we do not recommend starting guitar any younger. For younger students, we recommend learning the ukulele. The minimum age we recommend a student start ukulele lessons is 5 years old. For younger students, we recommend an intro to music program. Starting age will largely depend on the student, some may need to wait longer than others depending on factors such as fine motor skills, attention span and overall interest in music.
Do I Need a Guitar to Start the Lessons?
Yes, you will need a guitar to start the lessons. Without an instrument, you won’t be able to practice between lessons and make weekly progress. If cost is a concern, good beginner guitars are inexpensive and most music stores have a 30-day return policy if it’s not for you.

We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod, or iphone to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.
