Elijah L

Instruments:

I began playing drums at the age of 9, guitar at 10, started my first rock band at 11, and I've never stopped playing music since.  After playing in the concert band, jazz band and marching band in high school, I went on to Temple University where I earned my Bachelors degree in Jazz Performance on the drum set.  Since graduating in 2006, I have been teaching both drums and guitar professionally all over the greater Philadelphia area.

Margaret K

Instruments:

I'm a motivated educator and music therapist who has an intense love for music. I want my students to experience the joy that making music can bring!  I believe that an early love for music can help motivate students to learn and excel on their instruments. I love working with students of all ages.My primary instrument is voice and I also teach piano, guitar, and ukulele.  I excel and enjoy working with students with special needs! Music can do wonders for them and I am uniquely qualified to understand their challenges and needs while taking music lessons because of my work in music therapy.

Michael G

Instruments:

I am a 25 year old instructor with a lifelong interest in music. I began playing guitar at age 14 and am almost entirely self-taught on the instrument. While I earned my Bachelor's degree, I had the opportunity to take American popular music history (dating back to the 1800s), music theory, and piano classes. I also had the opportunity to produce and host my own rock and blues radio show. Currently I'm a working musician who hopefully continues to get as much out of teaching my students as you get from me.

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.
Taking in home guitar lessons saves you time, energy, and money. There is no need to pack up the guitar or amp to take them to the teachers studio, since a qualified, talented teacher can travel directly to your home. We make finding a teacher easy by matching you with a teacher who fits your needs and schedule.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student, so no two students' lesson plans will be identical. Topics covered during Musika's guitar lessons may include, but are not limited to: learning the notes on guitar, proper fretting, fingering, and strumming technique, how to read music, learning all open chords, how to play barre chords, how to tune a guitar, music theory, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the guitar!
Adults wanting to learn how to play the guitar may find it beneficial to have a clear goal in mind when starting their lessons. Beginner students may wish to learn to play a few of their favorite songs, or an advanced player might like to develop a technical aspect of their guitar playing. Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. Learning and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can take time, but with regular lessons and practice, you will gradually start to see improvements in your guitar playing, and be well on your way to achieving your goals.
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.
