The guitar is a portable instrument that you can take with you anywhere you go. This makes practicing and performing far easier. In comparison to other instruments, the guitar is relatively less expensive as well.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN AN INSTRUMENT?There is no set answer to how long it takes to learn an instrument. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons fun, rewarding, and engaging!
WHAT IF I DON'T OWN A PIANO OR OTHER INSTRUMENT?In order for you to get started right away with lessons it is important to have an instrument to practice on. If you don't already have a piano in your home, and are new to lessons, we recommend that you start with an electric keyboard. There are many options out there for keyboards, with a wide range of models and prices. You do not necessarily need a high-end keyboard to start. For woodwind and string instruments there are several rental companies in the area that allow you to rent your instrument on a monthly basis until you are ready to purchase one of your own.
