Fun, professional, and effective lessons for every age group.
Each instructor at West Side Guitar (WSG) has many years of experience working with younger students. Through this experience, WSG instructors have developed the necessary skill sets and methods for teaching youth lessons effectively. Whether it is learning to read music or a more open-ended approach, the right balance of curriculum is created to meet the unique needs and interests of each student. This style of teaching keeps lessons fun, engaging, and productive as students build confidence in their technical foundation and simultaneously develop a passion for their musical journey.
Who can deny, sometimes teenagers need a creative outlet they can call their own. Learning to play an instrument and diving into the world of music can provide hours upon hours of meditative relief from the stresses of growing up. For this age group, WSG focuses on teaching students their favorite songs by artists they aspire to sound like. This helps spark the motivation to practice, thus making the initial difficulties of guitar less defeating. As students progress in their playing, new genres and styles will be introduced to develop a wide range of techniques and musical knowledge.
From aspiring songwriters to professional artists, WSG has helped countless musicians reach the next level in their craft. Whether you just want to learn a few songs to strum around the campfire or become the next Jimi Hendrix, no dreams are off limits. Accommodating busy work schedules and hectic city lives, WSG will happily create lesson plans to match the pace and goals of each student. Any aspect of style, technique, and theory can be covered at various difficulty levels and across every genre including Rock, Blues, Classical, Country, Folk, Pop, Singer/Songwriter, Jazz, Alternative, Funk, Soul/R&B, Metal and many more.
