Colleyville Guitar Lessons

Want to learn guitar? How this works:

Many students love to play guitar! It’s mobile, easy to carry, and so much fun! Choose from acoustic (doesn’t need to be plugged in), electric, or bass guitar. Our guitar teachers are proficient on all of them, so you can change it up and try all three if you want to!

Explore many different kinds of music– including rock, jazz, country, the blues. We will teach Classical guitar, too, but you aren’t required to focus on it, if you don’t want to!

We find that learning skills like reading music, understanding chords and playing by ear are all valuable for the musician, but we will tailor each lesson to YOU and how you want to learn.

Feel free to bring your phone to show us what you enjoy listening to and even record parts of your lesson to help you practice at home!

We care about you

Loving the music you play is essential to a good guitar learning experience. That is why our teachers will always strive to help you learn the style and types of music you love to make the music come alive in your lessons and practice.  And if you don’t have one style or type of guitar music you love, our teachers will help you discover it!

Good technique starts here

While emphasizing the style of music you love is important, good technique is vital to success playing guitar. We will always work to make sure that all of our guitar students are not only enjoying their lessons, but learning the “right” way so they can be a successful guitarist the rest of their life.
