The guitar is one of the most popular instruments in the world and is at home in almost every style of music. Whether you want to sit on the edge of your bed and play for your own enjoyment, lead singalongs around a campfire, or perform on stage, itís hard to beat the guitarís affordability, portability and versatility. It provides almost instant gratification, yet can be the source of a lifetime of musical exploration and discovery.
Private guitar instruction is geared to the level and can be tailored to the interest of the student. The beginning student will be introduced to basic chords, strumming techniques and elementary music theory in the context of learning real songs from the folk tradition and popular music. Gradually the student encounters more elaborate chord and song structures while also developing note-reading and tablature-reading skills. Melodic playing and finger-picking techniques are introduced after a solid grounding in the underlying techniques and musical principles. It is recommended that the student use an acoustic guitar for lessons and practice.
