Private Lessons (Ages 5yrs – Adult)

When you work privately with a music teacher, you get the personalized instruction you’ll need in order to reach any playing goals you might have. Your teacher will provide hands on instruction, instant feedback, personalized training, goal setting as well as constant support and encouragement.

Lessons are designed around the students current skill level and interest – depending on if the student would like to be able to confidently play with like-minded musicians, sing while playing, or simply play for hobby. Students will learn music and TAB reading as well as other tools, techniques, warm-ups, and exercises to boost their over-all musicianship and playing ability. All while having FUN!
