We have the best makeup policy in America. If you miss a class you can either make up the material online, sit in on another session at no charge, or take a discounted private makeup lesson.

Q: Should I sign up for private lessons or group classes?

That depends on you. Group classes students appreciate making friends and the motivation which comes from keeping up with their classmates. Private students like one-on-one attention focused on their interests and abilities, and control over their schedule. Many students take both.

Guitars are available for FREE use in our studios. Economical guitar rentals are available so that you can practice at home.

Q: How long does it take to learn?
