PREFER TO LEARN WITH FRIENDS?
Our Intro to Guitar series is the fastest way to start learning guitar and get rock band ready. It's also a great option if you're a beginner guitar player who doesn't want to commit to private guitar lessons right away.
WHY LEARNING GUITAR MATTERS
It's May long weekend. The time of year when everyone in Edmonton is thinking the same thing: "Let's get the heck out of here and into the glorious outdoors!" After roasting smokies on the fire and trying to out do each other with your smore creations, your family settles into comfortable conversation around the campfire. As the stars start to come out, one of your daughters picks up her acoustic guitar and starts fingerpicking "Blackbird." The conversation slowly dies down as everyone can't help but listen. The joy you feel as you watch your daughter share her gift of music in that moment, is impossible to describe.
CURIOUS ABOUT ROCK BAND?
We teach kids music by putting them into rock band. It's what we do. We're passionate about using our one-of-a-kind rock band program to help your child learn music, grow in confidence and have a ridiculously good time.

GUITAR LESSON Q & A
It often depends on the physical size of your child's hands and their patience level when it comes to figuring out things that involve fine motor skills.
We often recommend children are 7+ years old before they start learning guitar. Ukulele and our Bigger Beats program is a great first step for 5-7 year olds who can't wait to start playing something with strings!
If your child is first starting to learn guitar and they're between the ages 8 and 10, we encourage them to give our Intro to Guitar series a try! It's perfectly paced for beginner guitar players and will give them a great introduction to what learning guitar is all about.
If your child is more into choosing-their-own-adventure, then private guitar lessons are a great option for them. Our private guitar lessons let your child choose their pace and choose their songs. And even if they're taking one-on-one lessons, they'll still have the option to jam with their teacher and other private lesson students.
Not any more! We now offer online guitar lessons that allow you to learn guitar anywhere and everywhere.
Sometimes you just don't know until you try. And, if after giving it their best shot, your child realizes that guitar just isn't for them, they can switch to a different instrument.
All of our teachers are multi-instrumental which means there's a good chance your child won't even have to switch lesson times or teachers. They can just seamlessly make the switch.
No problem. Your child's teacher will automatically record and send them a personalized make-up video lesson. Even if you don't give us any advance notice!
No problem. You can pause your guitar lessons any time as long as you let us know by the 15th of the month before you want to cancel. No penalties or hassle.
No. You can start guitar lessons anytime. Use our online registration form to get started today!
Yes! If you choose to learn guitar in-person, you can always switch to learning online at any point (and vice versa).
You can even do a one-time switch to online - if your child is feeling sick for instance - and then resume your in-person guitar lessons the following week.
We try to be flexible so we can make your life as easy as possible!
