Guitar and bass lessons for kids

guitar lessons for kids

Kids around 10 and under need a little more encouragement, structure and patience than older kids. Dexterity on a guitar or bass takes time.  Sight reading is also a must to help give them structure.  We try not to force, but only encourage practicing at this age by keeping their interests in mind and most all, making it fun for them.

But, everyone is an individual regardless of age and treated as one!

I took guitar lessons from Greg for several years. He really helped me discovery the type of style I enjoy playing which is rock, jazz, and blues. He is great at mixing in theory and chord progression with improvisation. Greg was also able to get me into a band with other students and we were able to play several local shows as well as record one of our original songs. Greg helped my songwriting flourish and I still use techniques that I learned from him today.
