I started playing piano as a young child in a small beach town in Southwestern Michigan.  I was always involved in church choir, bell choir and school choirs.  From the time I was 15, I knew that I wanted to use music to help people.  I began pursuing a degree in Music Therapy at Western Michigan University, where I studied piano with Lori Sims.  Upon graduating with a degree in music therapy, I began working as a music therapist on an inpatient psychiatric unit where I worked for 9 years with adults. Simultaneously, I taught piano lessons, Kindermusik classes, and provided music therapy to children at a local music school in Michigan.  I also have experience in providing group music education and movement classes to homeschool students.  I pursued a Masters of Public Administration in Healthcare degree and moved to the Philadelphia area to pursue a new career in that field.  Still with a passion for music, I plan on teaching piano lessons and music education for many years in the future.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Before you buy a guitar, it might be a good idea to get the advice of a teacher, or a friend or relative who already plays guitar. Their experience about local reputable music stores may be invaluable and save you a lot of time. The first options are whether to buy a new or used instrument, and whether you want to buy an acoustic or electric guitar. Student models for each can usually be purchased for around $150-200. Used instruments do not always cost less, as some instruments retain their value; notably higher quality American made guitars like Fender or Gibson.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
The most important thing is that students learn how to have fun when they are playing the guitar! It can be a challenge to master the basics, and it does take a lot of practice, but with the proper teacher, students can be playing their favorite songs without too much trouble. Topics covered during guitar lessons include: learning the notes, open chords, and barre chords, learning how to strum and pluck with the fingers and pick, and also sightreading techniques and music theory.
Many adults take guitar lessons! Your teacher will develop an individualized lesson plan relevant to your musical needs and goals. Adults taking guitar lessons for the first time can expect to learn a lot of new things, and have fun in the process!
At Musika, we recommend that the earliest age in which students start to take guitar lessons is about 6 years old. A nylon stringed, half-size classical will be the easier and most comfortable for younger students to play. In this age group, students will learn to play simple songs on the top strings. By the ages of 7-8, students can start to form chords and play and sing along to some of their favorite songs. For students in the 10-12 age bracket, they are likely to want to learn how to play rock music on an electric guitar, and should be comfortable playing a full sized guitar at this stage.
