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, it’s hard to beat the guitar’s 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.
Lessons are for ages 9+ by appointment and availability. Booked by 30, 45, or 60 minute weekly or one-time sessions. To sign-up for a class, choose an available time slot and the number of sessions you would like to take below and simply add it to the cart.

Performing Arts limited is a true community partner. Not only do they provide great dance instruction to many of the students from Rogers School but they also work closely with the school to offer experiences that many students would not be able to receive otherwise. They have opened their doors for school events and are always willing to help Rogers School in any capacity. The enthusiasm that Kate brings to her dance classes is second to none. Watching her captivate an entire 8th grade classroom through dance is truly a remarkable sight. I look forward to continuing our partnership with PAL and eventually sending my own daughter to classes at PAL."
Thank you for welcoming me into your studio as a new adult student of dance. Seven years later, I remain as excited as I was the first day, continually discovering new techniques, new forms of dance, new friends, new joy, and a new sense of accomplishment."
