Guitar, Ukulele & Mandolin Lessons

We offer lessons on a wide variety of fretted instruments.  They include steel string, electric & classical-style guitar, bass guitar, all sizes of ukulele and the 8-string mandolin.  Children can begin guitar lessons as young as 7 or 8.  We generally do not start students earlier than that because the instruments are too big.  You can read more about our 1/2 and 3/4 sized guitars on the Products page.


Our fretted instrument instructors use a variety of methods and materials to help you learn to read and play nearly all styles of music.  From beginners to advanced students, we will match you or your child with the perfect teacher to ensure a smooth musical journey.
