LEARN GUITAR. ROCK OUT.

EDMONTON'S GUITAR LESSONS THAT ROCK

INTRO TO GUITAR IS THE PERFECT WAY TO START LEARNING GUITAR. IT'S ALSO THE PERFECT WAY TO ROCK OUT.

Your child wants to learn crazy riffs on guitar. But you know that learning guitar on your own can be frustrating and lonely. It can also be oh-so-boring.

Intro to Guitar is designed to introduce your child to everything they need to know on guitar while having a crazy amount of fun.

It's also the fastest way for your child to get rock band ready. After completing Intro to Guitar - Level 1, your child will be ready to join our Junior Rock Band program.

WHAT EXACLTY IS INTRO TO GUITAR?  

Intro to Guitar will give your child the perfect introduction to guitar in an "out of the box" way.  We have a custom curriculum that uses rock classics and kid-centered teaching techniques to get your child pumped about guitar while challenging them to grow as a musician.

ARE PRIVATE GUITAR LESSONS BETTER FOR MY CHILD?  

Not necessarily. While one-on-one guitar lessons have become the typical starting place for many beginner guitar players, we believe "typical" doesn't always equal best.

When it comes to music, kids really benefit from learning to play music with others.  Intro to Guitar gives your child the chance to do exactly this in a way that private guitar lessons can't.

Private guitar lessons are a great option as your child gets more advanced with guitar. They're also a good option if your child tends to struggle with learning in a group.

HOW DO I KNOW IF INTRO TO GUITAR IS RIGHT FOR MY CHILD?

If your child is between the ages of 7 and 10 and they're first starting to learn guitar, then Intro to Guitar is a great choice for them.

Intro to Guitar is also the perfect next step for students who have completed our Bigger Beats program.

The small group environment keeps learning relaxed and fun while infusing some extra awesome energy into their learning experience.

Junior Rock Band is an awesome way for your 8-10 year old to experience what it's like to play in a band and develop the skills they need to hold their own when playing in a group.

INTRO TO GUITAR Q & A

We do recommend that Intro to Guitar students have a guitar at home to practice on. 

This being said, if this your child's first time learning guitar, you may want to wait and see if they actually like learning guitar before buying them one. Renting a guitar is often a great first step.

The short answer is you can learn to play guitar on either an electric guitar or an acoustic guitar. They are essentially the same instrument and whatever your child learns on one type of guitar, can be transferred to another. 

No, your child doesn't need to have any previous experience on guitar to register for Intro to Guitar.

Whether your child has completed our Bigger Beats program or is a complete beginner, Intro to Guitar is the perfect next step.

We get that life happens and you can't always make your guitar class.

The great thing about Intro to Guitar, is that each week your child will receive a short video that outlines and reviews what they learned in class that week. 

This means that if your child ever has to miss a class, they can simply watch the weekly video for their missed class and they'll be right up to speed! 

Payments are simple and they are done on a monthly basis.

After confirming your lesson time,  you will be asked to enter your credit card information into a secure online portal. Then, your credit card will be automatically charged at the beginning of every month.
