Featured Horsham Guitar Teachers

Mike M

Sandra G

Instruments:

I'm very passionate about teaching and love to work with all ages of students.  I had a studio in Mountain Top, PA for 25 years until our family moved to Utah.  I recently relocated to the Lehigh Valley.  I've performed with many orchestras and have coached many students to be able to compete and perform at Carnegie Hall for many years.  I take great pride in being able to teach on an individual basis, meaning I teach according to what the student needs and wants to be taught.

Ron C

Instruments:

Although most of my playing experience has been with rock bands, big bands and weddings, I have a B.A. in classical performance/music education from William Paterson University. Most of my private study has been with Dave Larson of the New Jersey Symphony and Dave Rogers, a William Paterson jazz adjunct. My classroom career began at the Passaic County Elks' Cerebral Palsy Center in Clifton, NJ, and in 2001 I moved to my present position as Elementary Music Teacher in Middlesex, NJ.  I love to play blues on my trumpet, but my latest passion is learning finger-picking on guitar. 

Andrew C

Instruments:

I'm a professional musician with a passion for performing and sharing my musical knowledge with others.  Coming from a musical family, I have been exposed to a wide range of styles all my life.  I earned my Bachelors Degree from University of the Arts in Philadelphia in Instrumental Performance: Jazz Studies.  It gave me the opportunity to meet and play with some great musicians, and make good friends in the process.  I teach at my home studio or online via skype.  My studio is equipped with amps, stands, cables and a computer set up for listening to tunes.  All you need is your guitar or bass.

Mark S

Instruments:

Learning music, especially at a young age, can have a positive impact in life. From simply playing in the home to performing music for large audiences, the basic goal is the same: the enjoyment of being a proficient musician. I have written a bit about my experience and how I can use it to help you to become a great musician.    I began studying music when I was 8 years old. My early lessons taught me not only about keyboard playing but about music teaching.  As a result of these experiences, I vow to teach students music that is meaningful to them. Moving along, in high school I played in rock bands with my friends. I can never stress how important it is to play with other people. I always encourage my students to form bands, join music groups in school, or just find a friend to jam with. Not only does this raise the level of musicality, it is a great motivational tool.  After high school, I studied music at Colorado State University, where I focused on jazz performance, theory, classical performance, and double bass pedagogy. I earned a bachelor of arts in music from Colorado State University in 2000.  My home studio is fully equipped with guitars, basses, keyboards, amps, and digital recording equipment. I am highly knowledgeable in audio and midi recording through the use of recording software.  *** Studio Equipment *** 20 x 20 room...equipped with the following instruments: piano---Casio 88 key fully weighted, electric guitar, electric bass, 4 amplifiers,  2 computers, and recording software *** Travel Equipment *** If my students need an instrument to play, I will provide all the necessary equipment for them.  *** Specialties *** I teach rock, blues, jazz, classical, and pop music.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

A half size (or three-quarter size) acoustic guitar is highly recommended for younger students. For older students, an electric guitar may be suitable, provided they can hold it correctly and with comfort. A good student model guitar can be obtained brand new for about $150 to $200. Electric guitar players will also need an amplifier as well as guitar cables, which will cost extra. Generally speaking, the higher the quality of the instrument, the easier it is to play. The ease of which an instrument plays is particularly important for young learners, as they will take to it quicker and enjoy their playing and practice more.
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.
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!
Whatever your current ability level, we recommend that students wanting to take guitar lessons have a clear aim in mind. Maybe there is a song you have always wanted to be able to play? Or maybe you want to develop your songwriting skills? Whatever your goals may be, our experienced teachers can help you achieve them with expert knowledge. Whether it be learning to play a sequence of chords, jamming a cool riff or mastering that guitar solo, developing the required skills and co-ordinations can take time. Taking regular lessons and practicing on a daily basis is the best way to achieving your goals.
Students aged as young as 6 years old are able to start taking guitar lessons with our expert teachers here at Musika. At this age, students will find it easiest to play a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings, and will learn how to play the top strings of the guitar and simple melodies. As they advance, they will start to form a range of different chords and learn to play more challenging songs. Usually by the age of 10-12 years old, students are capable of playing a full sized guitar and want to progress onto the electric guitar.
