Guitar Lessons in Katy TX
We are proud to teach the following related instruments: classical guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, and mandolin!
Understandably, as we are a conservatory of music, most people believe we only teach classical guitar. This, however, is simply not true. Although all of our instructors can teach the classical guitar, many are also VERY proficient in jazz, blues, rock and other genres of music played on the guitar!
Guitar Lessons and the Beginning Student
Beginning students will be introduced to guitar basics, such as how to tune their instrument, learn string names, work on chords, simple songs and melodies, along with theory. The advancing student will work on more advanced technical aspects, including riffs and improvisational studies. Although we take learning the “language of music” seriously, we also understand that the student must enjoy their lesson and have fun during the learning process. Our instructors are experts at achieving this balance!
