Our teachers provide lessons to a wide variety of skill levels and to all ages, from complete beginners to musicians that want to brush up on theory and technique.

Whether you’re interested in learning acoustic styles, blues, jazz, rock, or “Hey! I just want to learn some chords so that I can play guitar around the campfire!” we can get you there. Each lesson is tailored to your skill level, preferred style of music, and your goals in learning to play.

Some books may be required for instruction. The only thing you will need is a guitar!

Payment Policy

When you sign up for lessons, we’ll ask you to pay for your first lesson in advance, to hold your scheduled time. Then when you come to your first lesson, you’ll pay for your second lesson, and so on. All payments are paid directly to the teacher and you must remain current to keep your reserved lesson time.

Cancellation Policy

Lessons must be canceled at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled time by getting directly in touch with your teacher. Your payment will be credited to the following scheduled lesson.
