What type of curiculum
do your teachers use?
Our teachers do no have a set curiculum, as every
student has different needs and goals. They are able to use their expertise
and versatility to create a program tailored to each individual student.
Do I need to buy an instrument?
In order to get the most out of lessons, the student should practice
several times a week (everyday is ideal). If you do not own a guitar,
bass, piano, or drum set, it is necessary to either purchase or rent
one. Please call to check on rental availability.
Is it better to start on acoustic guitar, or is electric guitar okay?
Both types of guitar have advantages and disadvantages for the beginner,
and in the end, it's really a matter of what style you want to play and
which type of guitar is going to motivate you to practice!
