Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical guitar lessons in Tucson, AZ. We teach on electric and acoustic guitar. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their guitar lesson to learn their favorite tunes.
