GUITAR

Our guitar instructors are highly educated, passionate, encouraging and very friendly. We accept students from 5 years old and teach all ages, and levels (beginner, intermediate, early advance and advance). We help students/parents to choose and buy the instrument based on parents’ financial affordability. We teach variety of styles, including, but not limited to classical, pop, rock, jazz, funk, country etc. Our classical guitar students explore traditional repertoire across all periods; baroque, classical, and romantic, and explore regional styles such as Spanish and Latin American. Our students’ favorite songs will also be incorporated into the lessons. Each lesson is tailored based on students’ needs and goals. All our students benefit from one-on-one lesson setting, which allows them to have the instructor’s full attention. Students are encouraged to perform in our seasonal showcase events; recitals, recordings, performances, CM, RCM exams. Our goal is to motivate our students to practice and constantly improve their skills. Most importantly, we inspire our students to have fun and enjoy their lessons in a safe and professional environment.
