The Academy of Music offers guitar lessons for children and adults
Whether you want to play rock, pop, metal, country, blues or even jazz, taking private guitar lessons with one of our highly qualified guitar teachers in Georgetown will have you playing in no time!
All of our guitar lessons for age 6 and up are designed to teach the fundamentals of music in an easy to follow program that incorporates songs that you really want to learn.
Our one-on-one private guitar lessons mean that the teacher can focus on the individual learning style of the student. Private lessons also mean that they are able to learn the type of music they enjoy the most. Also with private lessons, a teacher can focus all of their attention on one student at a time. You can take private guitar lessons for 30 min. or for 1 hour.
Each guitar lessons will include:
• Learning the songs you really want to learn
• Reading music as it’s applied to the guitar
• Chord progressions
• Guitar solo techniques
• Music theory as it applies to the guitar
A complete guitar lesson at the Academy of Music will help the student prepare for a variety of different settings, like playing in a rock band as well as a school band or orchestra. Being a well-prepared guitar player can also help with stage fright and build confidence in students of all ages.
Our students learn more than just guitar riffs. They learn how to strum chords, play melody lines and guitar solos, read music and understand music theory. All of the skills necessary to truly enjoy the guitar for life.
Optional Guitar Exams
Guitar students at the Academy of Music have the option to take annual guitar exams through the Ontario Music Teachers Guild. This means that guitar students and parents can be sure they are progressing and covering every aspect of the guitar in their lessons. The Music Teachers Guild Exam system is one of the only graded guitar programs based on rock and jazz guitar and moves the students towards university and college preparation.
Guitar lessons at our schools are enhanced by the opportunity to jam with other musicians in a rock band setting or solo performances in one of our recitals.
All the guitar lessons are taught at the Georgetown school located at 330 Guelph Street (next to Tim Horton’s)). Stop by anytime between 4pn and 8 pm to register or just to meet our friendly and professional desk staff.
“Our son has been taking guitar lessons at the Georgetown Academy of Music for almost 2 years now. While he has always been heavily involved in sports, taking guitar lessons has been quite a change in terms of his extra curricular activities. The experience has been absolutely wonderful and amazing! Not only has he developed a real love of music, his confidence has improved, which has transferred over into over aspects of his life as well.”
