Location: All lessons are held at our office at 31st Ave. & Peoria in Phoenix, AZ (see Contact page for directions/map)
All lesson materials are customized to the student's age, interests, and goals (we have different programs structured appropriately for different ages and styles).
Lessons always include songs of the student’s choice, and music fundamentals (technique, reading, theory, etc.).
We balance quickly attainable short term goals, and long term goals to keep you challenged and moving forward.
Students are given specific practice goals so they know how to practice at home.
Student ages/levels: We offer lessons for ages five and up, and about 50% of our current students are adults. Most of our students are beginners with no previous musical experience, and some are aspiring professionals that we prepare for college, auditions, competitions, bands, and performances. Whatever your current age and level is, we can help you achieve your goals.
Most students come in for a 30 minute lesson once per week and pay monthly. Students who come in more than once per week and/or take 45 or 60 minute weekly lessons, simply prefer more time with the instructor and/or have serious goals. Lessons can also be scheduled and paid for individually.

During the lesson:
In a private lesson, the instructor will guide you through certain material from categories that can include: songs of your choice in any style/genre, music reading, rhythms, tablature, technique, theory, warm-ups, exercises, scales, chords. At the end of each lesson you will be given specific practice goals in each of the areas that were covered.
Practice at home:
It is recommended that you practice every day, for a minimum of 30 minutes per day. This is the minimum requirement for steady results. However there is no limit, the more you practice, the faster your playing will improve.
Our instructors have years of songwriting & coaching experience, and we have already helped many students create and complete original music.
