What styles of guitar do you teach?
We teach most styles, from rock, pop, jazz, blues, metal, and country guitar – on electric and acoustic guitars.
Are your guitar instructors qualified?
Our guitar teachers have received their musical education from such prestigious institutions as York University, Humber College, Mohawk College, and the University of Toronto. Many have toured the US and Canada, and bring years of professional performance and teaching experience to your lessons.
What will I learn in my guitar lessons?
Beginner guitar students will work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and music theory. Our guitar teachers balance musicianship and fun by making sure that you get a new technical challenge or theory concept in each lesson, ending with something fun, such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books, and encourage students to bring their smartphone or CDs to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.
Do I need to purchase a guitar to start lessons?
The Academy offers acoustic and electric guitars for student lessons (for your convenience, students can use one of ours at their first lesson). But to practice at home, you will need purchase a guitar. Not sure what kind of guitar to buy? Check out this great article: How to Choose a Guitar in 2 Simple Steps from Artist Guitars.
Is your child a bit young for guitar lessons? Try the ukulele!
Most students start guitar lessons at age 6 and older. While your little one might be a bit small for the guitar they may be perfect for the ukulele. The soprano ukulele is much smaller than the guitar and it only has 4 strings. Many of the patterns are the same as the guitar and can easily be transferred when switching to guitar lessons later. The ukulele is a great instrument to start on! It’s easier to play, and most students will be able to play a few chords and songs in their first lesson. Learn more about our ukulele lessons Oakville.
