Our Approach to Guitar & Ukulele Lessons

The guitar is one of the most versatile instruments. It shows up in the classical concert hall, it’s a staple throughout commercial pop music, and it’s found in folk music all around the world. With such a diverse set of applications, it’s not surprising that approaches to teaching and learning guitar vary widely. Our approaches do, too, depending on the student’s goals. That said, here’s a basic outline of our approach.

We welcome musicians of all skill levels, and our instructors work with you to create a customized curriculum. Whether you’ve never touched a guitar or ukulele before, want to prepare for entrance into a conservatory, or desire to play your favorite songs, we can help you achieve your goals.

Guitar Lessons Should Be Fun!


We all know the feeling: you hear your favorite song come on and you can’t resist the urge to play along on your air guitar! Here at The Music Connection, we can help you convert your musical fantasies into reality – while preserving that irresistible sense of joy you feel when playing along. We want each of our students to LOVE their musical experience with us!

Whether you come to us planning on becoming the next Jimi Hendrix or simply wanting to play songs around the campfire with your friends, our top-notch instructors will help you progress quickly toward your goals while ensuring you have fun along the way.

We Emphasize Healthy Technique


Regardless of your ultimate goals, our teachers will prioritize strong fundamentals including proper posture, hand positioning, chords, fretting, picking, and strumming. As students progress, these basics will become second nature – and serve as the foundation from which students can apply their skills across a variety of genres and styles.

We want our guitar students to be literate, well-rounded musicians. Beginners and seasoned performers alike will find value in our approach at The Music Connection, coupling technical instruction with elements of music theory and music history in each lesson.

We Care About Your Musical Interests


Your unique interests and background will help guide your experience at The Music Connection. We teach beginners, intermediate, and advanced students who are interested in a variety of styles – including rock, jazz, classical, pop, blues, and more. Whether you’re inspired by modern day singer-songwriters or the rockers of the 1970s, we can’t wait to get started with you!

Our seasoned instructors will draw upon years of playing, performing, and teaching experience to guide you in improving your skills and exploring the many possibilities of your instrument, and advancing toward your goals at a pace that works for you.

“Hi Music Connection Friends, I just wanted to say thank you for all of those lessons you gave my children when they were younger. It’s truly a gift that lasts a lifetime. The best thing that has come out of this quarantine is that my kids remember they know how to play and they have been playing daily again. So lovely to hear them play and all that they learned. It is a gift they can enjoy forever.”
