Is there a performance?

Yes, we have an annual guitar concert in January for everyone in the guitar academy. We also have other performance opportunities for students around town.  


Do you teach electric guitar?

Yes, absolutely. We like to wait at least a year so that students can develop good hand strength and technique before moving to electric. Our intermediate and advanced classes play both acoustic and electric.


What if I miss a class?

No problem. We always have at least 2 classes at the same level which lets our students easily make up in a similar level class.


What styles do you teach?
