Guitar & Ukulele Lessons

Our guitar and ukulele instructors teach rock, blues, classical, folk and jazz lessons on electric and acoustic guitars, as well as ukulele. 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. Ukulele is great for those young students who are still building strength

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.
