Bravo starts private guitar lessons for students as young as 7 years old, but they are most popular with teens and adults. Our guitar instructors are university trained musicians who are experienced teaching students of all ages. Guitar students will learn proper technique for playing the guitar along with open and power chord strumming, note reading, playing their favorite songs and more. Students will also learn the fundamentals of music such as melody, harmony, and rhythm. More experienced players can receive help in advanced techniques or exploring particular styles of music like rock, pop, jazz, blues, classical, Spanish, and more. Students should expect to maintain a consistent practice schedule. Beginners usually start with about 5-10 minutes 2-3 times a week. More advanced students should expect to be practicing around 30-60 minutes 4-5 times a week. All student should have their own guitar so they can practice at home. Beginners are welcome to start on acoustic or electric guitar. Acoustic is more cost effective and electric will require an amp and instrument cable which can add to the cost. For younger students our instructors might recommend a 1/2 or 3/4 size guitar. All students should have a student quality guitar which are easier to play and stay in tune.
