Guitar Lessons

Golden Guitar Studios offers lessons for guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele. Lessons for improvisation and composition are offered for all instruments. Styles include classical, jazz, rock, blues, R & B, and country. All ages and levels are welcome. Skype lessons are available.

Beginning students initially cover five fundamental subjects: note reading, technique (physical movement), chords, and scales (basic vocabulary), and songs. From there we branch out into learning music from recordings (student's choice). Golden Guitar Studios students consistently compete successfully for high school and college, as well as professional level auditions.

We recommend that beginner players practice 4 times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes each session. Note that excellent players practice many hours per day.

Private lessons are $25.00 per half-hour, $45.00 per hour, paid at the beginning of the month for the entire month. Advanced players wanting an occasional lesson can schedule them at the rate of $50.00 per hour.

Please contact us to schedule a lesson or to answer any questions.
