Gary W

Instruments:

I try to learn as much as I can from all my influences and express it in my own way. Music is a deep reflection of a person’s personality. It’s taught me Discipline, Patience, Commitment, and a deep understanding of myself. Music should be shared with others, so get out there, jam, listen to the greats and learn. There are no limits on what you can achieve if you dedicate yourself.

John H

Instruments:

I am a guitarist hailing from Central Florida. I love to just rock out to anything that sounds good from metal to country; if it sounds good I'll play it. I've been playing since the age of 6 and was heavily influenced by KISS, my favorite band. I play many styles of music including Rock, Metal, Blues, Jazz, Country, and Classical. I've played in numerous bands such as The Dream Lake Project, Dead Fall, OD, and with many show case artist such as Jimmy Bridgewater , Larry Black, and The Smokey Jackson Band. While in Florida I was the go-to guy for session work at Omega 4 Studio doing jingles and backing tracks for TV and independent movies. When not out playing or in the studio I teach guitar and do guitar clinics for JB Player Guitars. Right now I am working in the studio when I have the time making a debut solo CD, a slow work in progress called Electrica Acoustica Exotica. The title says it all; it will be a mixture of heavy guitars and catchy acoustic tunes.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

As a preference, younger students should start off by learning on a half size or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. If they are able to hold it comfortably, older students could start off using an electric guitar. A brand new student model guitar can be purchased for about $150 to $200. An electric guitar will also need accompanying amplification as well as guitar cables, which will incur additional costs. It is important a student enjoys playing their instrument - so higher quality guitars are recommended as they are easier to play.
Need to save time because of your busy schedule? Why not try in-home guitar lessons. A Musika teacher can travel to your home and provide excellent quality instruction in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Musika plans its guitar lessons with the specific requirements of each individual student in mind. During the course of their guitar lessons, students can expect to 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 favorite 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!
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the guitar do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite tunes, learn to compose your own music, develop a new technique or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality! Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can take time. With regular lessons and plenty of practice, you will gradually start to see improvements in your guitar playing, and will be well on your way to achieving your goals.
At Musika, we offer guitar lessons to students as young as 6 years old. A nylon stringed, half-size classical guitar will be the easiest and most comfortable model for younger students to play, and at this age students will be learning to play simple tunes on the top strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing along to their favorite songs. For students in the 10-12 age range, 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.
