Kids or Adults, All Ages Are Welcome

At Bold Music, we offer guitar lessons for students of any age. We welcome kids, teens, adults, and seniors. We start kids off with a half-sized classical guitar because it is easier for them to hold. Many older kids and teens love to learn the bass guitar.

Whichever type of guitar you choose to learn, we will give you lessons in jazz, pop, classical, and more. We even offer an exciting summer camp for kids that will allow them to practice their skills and record music. Our camp focuses on songwriting, performance, and production.

But we don't just teach kids. We also teach adults and seniors to play the guitar. If you always wanted to learn how to play as a kid but never got around to lessons, now is your time!

We all have busy, hectic lives, and it may seem like you could never fit guitar lessons into your crazy schedule. But you can if we come to you. Bold Music will arrange to meet you wherever is most convenient for you, not just in your home.

Beginner or Advanced, We Teach Everyone

Whether you're a newbie to guitar or a seasoned player, our highly-trained professionals will create fun and challenging guitar lessons to improve your skills. Some of our students just need a refresher or some tips on the guitar that they have been playing for years. Others have never touched a guitar in their lives. Either way, Bold Music is here for you!

Beginner students will learn how to play the guitar by starting with the fundamentals: scales, chords, reading music, proper fingering, tuning, rhythm, and arpeggios. They will also have fun learning easy new songs. We help beginners build a solid foundation. From there, they can quickly move on to more advanced training.

At Bold Music, we don't teach dictatorial, autocratic lessons. We believe instead that the best way to learn how to play the guitar is to enjoy your playing while building on your skills. Our lessons are fun! And we have found that the fun keeps our students motivated and engaged. It's a lot easier to learn, too, when you're having fun.

Remember to Practice!

If there's one bit of advice that we could give, it would be to practice, practice, practice! That's how you will become a better guitar player. You will learn a lot in your guitar lessons, but you must practice what you learn. Practice will make you better at playing guitar, but it will also help you to grow as a musician.

There is a certain amount of muscle memory involved in learning how to play the guitar. You must reinforce that memory by repeating skills like reading music and memorizing fingering positions. The bottom line is, the more you practice, the better you will be on the guitar!
