Electric Guitar Lessons in St. LouisMusic Lessons: Guitar

Our guitar instructors teach rock, blues, classical, folk and jazz lessons on electric and acoustic guitars. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs, melodies sight-reading, and theory.  Beginner students use traditional guitar method books to help establish a basic musical foundation and general guitar concepts. Intermediate/Advanced level students learn from the schools own Dave Simon’s Rock School-Rock Guitar Method book which incorporates skill building and creative teaching methods.  All students in guitar lessons take assessments each session to track their progress and set new goals. We encourage students to bring CDs or iPods to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes. Watch this video to see a guitar lesson in action.
