Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, jazz, country, and classical guitar lessons on electric, acoustic, and bass guitars. 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 favourite 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 lesson to learn their favourite tunes.
Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals. We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach. A 7 year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a 57 year old taking up piano for the second time after having had lessons as a child.
The main reason to choose The Music Stand as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual. If you enroll here for music lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. During your first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favourite type of music and set goals to help accomplish whatever aspirations you have for yourself or your child. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.
Prices reflect private weekly 30-minute lessons. Music lessons are exempt from sales tax. A one-time $15 registration fee applies after the intro period.
