Guitar Lessons for Kids

Looking for a fun after-school activity for your kids? Kids’ guitar lessons with Bold Music are a fun way to learn how to play great music! Most kids under nine years old start with a small, half-sized classical guitar because it will be manageable for them to hold. We recommend that children use nylon strings that are soft and comfortable to strum. As kids grow, they will progress to a full-size guitar. Many of our younger students enjoy learning electric guitar, but we can customize our lessons to each student’s preferences. We also offer a recording camp that gives kids the opportunity to record music while practicing what they learn in a realistic setting.

Adult Guitar Lessons

Did you try an instrument when you were younger, but never practiced a lot? Did you want to play guitar as a kid? Our instructors at Bold Music can help you learn the music you’ve always wanted to in a fun, relaxed setting as an adult. Adult guitar lessons with Bold are customized for what you want to learn – acoustic, electric, jazz, bass, or any style in between!

Whether you want to join a band or just be able to play some songs for fun, we can help you reach your goal.

Advanced Guitar Lessons

Already know the basics and looking to up your game? Bold Music instructors offer advanced guitar lessons, helping you learn cutting-edge techniques and improve your shredding skills. Learn power chords, soloing, finger picking for acoustic guitar, scales and other techniques. Some of our students who are interested in jazz also play using sheet music. Most players, regardless of how advanced they are, want to show off their skills by playing for an audience. With Bold Music, you get an education, a friend, and a taste of what it’s like to be a professional musician. Our guitar instructors even bring students to play in real gigs. It doesn’t get cooler than that! We also provide the opportunity to record in one of Charlotte’s premier recording studios. We are a unique company with a fresh take on an old concept.

Bass Guitar Lessons with Bold Music

If you’re interested in bass guitar lessons, whether for you or your child, Bold Music in the Charlotte, NC, area offers lessons in the comfort of your own home. At Bold Music, we’re all about letting loose and really enjoying creating music. When you’re in your own environment, you’re a little more comfortable and you tend to have more fun learning. That’s our goal for our clients, our Bold Music family.

Bass or Six-String Guitar Lessons?

If you’re debating whether to learn bass guitar or six-string guitar, there are many options to consider. Since the bass only has four strings, it can be easier to get your fingers around the chords and you’ll be jamming out in no time. That doesn’t mean you won’t need lessons to improve your technique and really hone your skills, though.

In a band, the bass guitarist and drummer work together to establish the rhythm of a song. Playing bass can be extremely social. If your goal is to play in a band someday, bass is a great instrument to learn. Our instructors can even provide you with guidance on creating a band or pair you with other musicians at the same skill level to get you started.

There’s not just one way to play bass, either. We will help you learn to play in a style you enjoy. Being a fan of the music you’re playing is going to make you want to practice and progress. Bass offers a wide range of playing techniques, from slapping to picking to playing it in the style of classical guitar.

Learn to Play without Leaving the House

We understand that some days it seems like you need five more hours just to get everything done. The instructors at Bold Music come straight to you, reducing the amount of time you spend schlepping back and forth.

Playing bass can help you appreciate the music you love to listen to as you notice the delicately crafted notes emanating from this rich instrument. It’s never too early or too late to learn a new instrument. Call us today to find out more about learning to play bass guitar.
