Guitar and Bass Lessons

acoustic guitar closupOur music lessons include acoustic, electric, semi-electric, and bass guitar. Our guitar students will develop skills in reading both standard notation and tablature, playing melodies, chords, and improvisation. We also encourage our students to bring in recordings of their favorite bands and musicians for study and transcription.

We offer guitar lessons at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. But our lessons go beyond individual instruction. Students have the opportunity to jam with other musicians in a rock band setting organized by our instructors, as well as perform solo in our recitals.

Our guitar instructors specialize in various styles, so whether you’re interested in classical guitar technique or are ready to rock and roll, we can tailor a program to meet your goals. We even provide lessons for specialized instruments like the mandolin and ukulele!

Which Guitar is Best For You?

If you’re starting guitar lessons, choosing the best type of guitar is a crucial step in your musical journey. Let your personal preferences and interests guide your decision.

If you love folk or blues, we suggest starting with an acoustic guitar. For rock or heavy metal, an electric guitar with its versatility is a great choice. If you enjoy various genres, a semi-electric guitar offers the best of both worlds. And if setting the rhythm is your thing, the bass guitar could be the right fit.

  • Acoustic: Known for their rich, full-bodied sound, acoustic guitars are versatile instruments suitable for a wide range of musical styles. From classical and country to pop and blues, their deep resonant tones make them perfect for strumming chords or fingerpicking melodies. The benefits of an acoustic guitar include easy portability and not requiring an amplifier to project sound.
  • Electric: With their solid body and amplified sound, electric guitars are ideal for rock, blues, jazz, and heavy metal music. They offer a wide range of tonal possibilities, from clean and sharp to distorted and fuzzy. They can be easier to play than acoustic guitars due to their lighter strings and have endless potential for creative use due to various effects pedals.
  • Semi-Electric: These guitars combine elements of both acoustic and electric guitars. They can be played unplugged like an acoustic guitar or connected to an amplifier for a louder, more electric sound. They’re perfect for jazz, blues, and even rock music. They are highly versatile, offering the best of both worlds while maintaining a balanced tone and resonance.
  • Bass: Typically used to provide the rhythmic foundation in a band, bass guitars are great for blues, jazz, rock, pop, funk, and many more genres. They add depth and richness to the music, maintaining the harmony while driving the rhythm. The advantages of playing a bass guitar include the essential role it plays in a band setup and the unique, rich tones it produces.

Ultimately, the best guitar for you is the one that inspires you to play!
