How do I pay for my lesson?
We accept Cash, Check, Visa, Master Card and PayPal.
How long are the lessons?
Each lesson is one hour. We strongly recommend students attend one hour lessons on a weekly basis. Sixty minutes is just enough time for students and instructors to review what the student has been practicing, look at new musical material, discuss the new material, and setup a plan to practice the new material over the next seven days.
The sixty-minute lesson also works well for very young students, even those who may not yet have the attention span of older students. For very young students the full hour allows us break up periods of more intense focus with short periods of music-related discovery and fun. These breaks are valuable in that they allow our instructors to present the music lesson as though it is playtime, while still getting in lots of serious musical instruction.
What equipment do I need to bring to my guitar or bass lessons?
If you are most comfortable playing your own instrument, we encourage you to bring it with you to your lesson. But, if you don’t want to lug your guitar around through your busy day, don’t worry: It is NOT necessary to bring ANY equipment to your lesson. The Gables Guitar Studio is fully equipped with a variety of different guitars (electric, acoustic & classical) any of which a student may use during their lesson. We also have plenty of amps, picks, cables, music stands, footstools and many other musical accessories. All you need to bring with you is your love of music and a desire to learn!
