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.

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

It is recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized guitars. If they are able to hold it comfortably, older students could start off using an electric guitar. A good student model guitar can be obtained brand new for between $150 to $200. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar cables, which are essential for an electric guitar player. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which provides the student with a much greater chance to enjoy and develop in their learning.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home guitar lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Our guitar students will learn how to hold, tune, and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and learning the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favourite songs, such as power chords, open chords and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover such aspects as; reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
We recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind - such as learning to play a few of their favorite songs. When you start lessons, a teacher will help you unlock the skills required to reach your goals. Keep in mind that you might not be able to start off with the exact song you want to learn - it could take months of study and practice to learn all of the notes and chords required to turn your dream into a reality.
At Musika, we recommend that the earliest age in which students start to take guitar lessons is about 6 years old. Students in this age category will start of by learning to play simple tunes on the top strings of the guitar and are recommended to use a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing and singing along to their favorite songs. When students get to about 10-12 years old, they may become interested in rock music and decide to learn on a full-sized electric guitar.
