Our guitar lessons include acoustic, electric and bass guitar. Our guitar faculty is comprised of versatile musicians who can instruct students in everything from rock to jazz, classical to pop, Spanish to chording. Many of our teachers actively perform in bands. Our guitar teachers have college or university music degrees so they know the proper theory and technique no matter if a student is interested in metal or in classical. We also offer ensemble opportunities for guitar students so they can acquire essential collaborative skills, whether they desire to play in a classical ensemble or rock/jazz/pop band. No matter what type of guitar lessons you are interested in, we have the teachers to help you!
Typically a student would be 8 before starting guitar lessons, due to their hand size, but we have successfully started students as young as age 6 with a junior sized guitar. Our private guitar lessons are one-on-one instruction and lesson lengths are 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour.
Irvine School of Music offers multiple, optional performance opportunities each year with our Christmas recital, Summer recital, and weekly open-mic nights throughout the academic year.
