Guitar Lessons in Tucson, AZ

Guitar lessons at the Music & Dance Academy are taught by an excellent guitar faculty. Our teachers have advanced music degrees from universities and are active performers at the local, national and international levels. They have experience teaching students various styles of music including classical, flamenco, jazz, blues, country, rock, heavy-metal, and popular. So students can learn anything from James Taylor, to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, to Jobim, to Metallica!

Lessons are taught on classical, acoustic, electric, and bass guitar, ukulele, and banjo.  Students develop listening skills, left and right hand techniques, reading skills, and improvisational creativity.  Students learn to read guitar tablature, as well as standard music notation, chord charts, fingerpicking, rhythm or lead guitar charts and more.

We offer guitar lessons to students of all ages and abilities from beginners to advanced. Students have the opportunity to participate in multiple recitals throughout Tucson, AZ, which they (children and adults) may share their musical achievements with friends and family. Recitals may include a mix of solo and ensemble classical guitar, as well as, singer-songwriters and rock bands.

Private lessons are scheduled once a week, for 30, 45, or 60 minutes, depending on the student’s age, ability, and goals.
