The guitar is the most played musical instrument in the world. It is a very adaptable musical form and can be used to play all types of music including blues, country, jazz and pop and rock.

Children and adolescents who begin to take guitar lessons at a fairly early age learn to appreciate music in all its forms, and learn that they enjoy listening to different genres in music.

Guitar lessons at the Academy of Music and Fine Arts are tailored specifically to each student’s needs and expectations.

  1. Start off from with basics. When it comes to learning to play the guitar, or just about learning anything else for that matter, learning the basics right is essential.  you’ll learn about things such as how to hold the guitar, fretting and strumming, guitar theory, riffs, notes, etc. in an efficient manner.
  1. Correct your technique, and work on any issues with your guitar-playing technique. For instance you will be able to work on aspects like speed, rhythm, chords and scales, and of course, your overall playing ability. Lessons will also allow you to enhance techniques such as playing solos, intricate scales, alternate picking, finger picking, hammer-ons and pull-offs, and so on and so forth.
  1. Most self-taught forms of learning the guitar are slow and inefficient. Yes, many guitar players can teach themselves how to play, but usually the process is slow. With guitar lessons, you will be able to accomplish and learn the same amount of material in a week, for instance, that might take you more than a month to do so yourself.
  1. You learn a lot more when working with a professional. You’ll be able to pick certain things up when you learn the guitar under the apprenticeship of a good guitar teacher. Having an actual person there to show you exactly how everything is done – from the advanced stuff right down to the basics – will be much better.

    Along with their private guitar lesson, all students attending the Academy of Music and Fine Arts are invited to part take in our choir and music theory classes, free of charge.
