Let’s face it. Alternate tunings are a problem that isn’t going away. We guitarists work so hard for many years to learn a vocabulary of chords, scales and arpeggios in standard tuning. We agonize over our guitar’s intonation until we get it just right. And then at a certain point we learn just how much of the standard rock canon is played in alternate tunings. Just try to play Hendrix, Van Halen, Guns N’ Roses, Weezer, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Simon and Garfunkel, Stevie Ray Vaughan, or the Rolling Stones and you will find that nearly all the songs by these great artists are in some from of alternate tuning!
- Beginner Guitar Lessons Our main goal is to create a safe and positive environment full of positive support. We focus on celebrating the student's achievements every step of the way and together we enjoy their introduction to the basics. No pressure!
- Intermediate Guitar Lessons Together we develop the student's understanding of their instrument by exploring Music Theory and Musical Literacy (reading and writing music). We use many colorful handouts, interactive software and musical examples to help students truly understand these fundamental concepts.
- Advanced Guitar Lessons With strong technique in the hands and a mind that can fully conceptualize how music works, advanced students can focus on developing their abilities to both write and perform music with expressive confidence.
- Bass Classes All Levels We offer the same levels for bass as we do guitar: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. As with our other classes we tailor your program to your goals and current mastery of the bass.
