guitar lessons for beginners

All students are motivated to set goals for performance at every opportunity as a stimulus for positive cycles in practice, enjoyment, and the “can-do” mentality.

From the beginner level the students are armed with a foundation on which to grow a solid “learning tree” in order to continue developing the mental tools to exploit their strengths and overcome “sticking points” that may otherwise hold them back.

It is in the immersion that the freedom to truly enjoy playing brings

that we find our inner musician.
