Lessons for Everyone: Kids, Teens, Adults, and Seniors Welcome

Our instructors teach lessons for people of all ages. Young kids will usually start on a half-sized classical guitar because it will be most comfortable for them to hold. Bass guitar is popular with older kids and teens, but we can provide lessons in classical, jazz, pop, and more. We also offer a recording camp that gives kids the opportunity to record music while practicing what they learn in a realistic setting.

If you ever wanted to learn the guitar when you were younger but figure that time has passed you by, we encourage you to think again! We teach beginner students of all ages, from small children to seniors. If you are a busy working adult, it might not seem like you have time to take up an instrument, but you do if we come to you. You can arrange to meet our instructors wherever works best for you, not just at your home.

From Beginners to Performers: We Teach All Skill Levels

It doesn’t matter whether you are just starting out or have been playing for years. We have fun, professional instructors for beginners and seasoned players. Our students may want a refresher or tips on an instrument that they have played for years, or they may have never strummed a guitar before in their life. Either way is okay!

Beginning students will learn guitar from the ground up, including scales, chords, proper fingering and reading music. This allows our students to have fun learning easy songs while building a solid foundation for advanced training if they wish to continue. There are no dictatorial, autocratic lessons from Bold Music–we believe that the best way to learn guitar is to have fun playing while building your skills. Fun keeps students motivated and engaged, plus it actually improves learning.

Practice Makes Perfect (And Improves Your Guitar Playing!)

Practicing is the backbone of learning an instrument. Our instructors will teach you new techniques and walk you through the steps to learning to play the guitar (or learning to be a better guitar player), but there are some very good reasons that you need to practice if you plan to improve. Plus, it’s just fun!

No one ever became a skilled musician by only attending lessons. This is because practice teaches you some very important skills that help you grow as a musician. Playing the guitar requires a certain amount of muscle memory, which is only obtained by practice. Just like learning to write, your hand needs practice in order to be able to make steady movements in the right place. Skills like reading music and memorizing fingering positions for chords are also greatly enhanced by regular practice. The more you do it, the better you will be!
