How to Get Started

 
 
 

Featured Akron Guitar Teachers

Adam C

Instruments:

I had a great guitar teacher myself when I was first learning and so I have always known how important it is to get started correctly.  I graduated with a degree in fingerstyle guitar performance and so I know how to perform and teach numerous acoustic guitar styles but I can still plug in the electric guitar and have fun rocking out.  Music is an endlessy enriching activity that will bless people's lives forever and I love to help people discover what the guitar has to offer them.

Egan A

Instruments:

I started playing piano when I was 10. By 15 I was performing at local venues throughout the state of Ohio. At 15 I also started playing the guitar; over the years I have added the bass, drums and percussion to my resume. I have had the great opportunity to meet and perform with many amazing musicians, as well as travel all over north America and Europe. I love being able to share my love and enthusiasm for music with my students and show all it can give them.

Instruments:

Isaac Winland  holds a degree in Music Performance from Marshall University, and now is attending the University of Akron as a graduate assistant.

Bryan R

Instruments:

I'm an experienced performer and private lessons teacher who is enthusiastically pursuing a mission to share the art of music!  I graduated from Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music in 2013 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Guitar Performance.  I'm preparing to attend the Cleveland Institute of Music, Fall of 2014, to obtain a Master of Music degree.   I've been fortunate enough to have gained performance experience with various ensembles including:  BW Guitar Trio with Composer Loris Chobanian, Duo Risch Reichert (viola/guitar), and band experience. I began private music lessons at the age of seven studying trumpet, and at eight I started guitar and bass lessons.  Music has been my life for as long as I can remember and I honestly can't imagine another path.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Younger students who are just starting their guitars lessons will find it much easier to play on a half size or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. Playing on an electric guitar may be an alternative option for older students, so long as they find gripping the guitar to be comfortable. Brand new student model guitars can be purchased for around the $150 - $200 price range. Electric guitar players will need to invest in an amplifier and guitar cables, which will generate additional costs. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play than their cheaper counterparts, which will impact positively on the enjoyment and progression of playing the instrument for students.
Save time by having a teacher come to your home! No need to pack up and transport your guitar between lessons, and no need to guzzle gas either. Our teachers provide a private, customized one-on-one lessons for each student, and your home will be both a comfortable and safe environment.
Students typically start with the basics, such as how to hold the guitar, how fret notes with the left hand, and how to strum or pluck the strings with the right. Teachers will cover sight reading, guitar chords, and basic music theory, all of which are needed for students to perform and understands the inner-workings of their favorite songs. More advanced students can work on jazz improvization, classical technique, or rock or blues guitar solos.
We recommend that older students looking to take up guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind, such as learning some of their favorite songs or learning to write their own compositions. At Musika, our experienced teachers can help you to achieve your guitar playing goals, whether you are a novice, intermediate or advanced level player. It takes time, dedication and patience to acquire the co-ordination, techniques and skills necessary to meet your aims. Those who commit to taking regular lessons and daily practice will see the fastest progression in their guitar playing abilities.
Students as young as 6 years old are welcome to start taking guitar lessons with our experienced guitar teachers at Musika. Students of such a young age will start learning simple melodies on the top strings of the guitar, as will play half-sized classical guitars with nylon strings. By age 7-8, students will start to learn more complex and challenging songs using chords. Around about the age of 10-12, many students express an interest in learning to play rock music using an electric guitar. By this stage, students are old enough to use a full sized guitar.
