Guitar Lessons



Our guitar instructors teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical styles on both electric and acoustic guitars. Beginners work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory, and ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song. We employ a variety of guitar method books based on student needs and preferences, and encourage students to bring smartphones or CDs to their lessons to learn their favorite tunes.

What’s the #1 reason to study guitar at the Academy?

Our guitar instructors are warm and friendly, and get to know each student and parent on a personal level. We work with you to craft a lesson plan that fits your individual needs and the student's favorite type of music. Whether you're playing in local bands, a seven year old taking their first lesson, or a fifty year old returning to the guitar after many years, we’ll set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.

What styles of guitar do you teach?

We teach all styles, from rock, pop, jazz, and blues to metal, country and classical guitar – on electric and acoustic guitars.


How qualified are your guitar instructors?

Our guitar and music instructors have received their education from prestigious institutions, have toured the US and Europe, and bring over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience to your lessons.

What will I learn from guitar lessons at SoCal Music Studio?

Beginner guitar students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Our instructors balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson presents a new technical challenges or theory concept, and ends with something fun, such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books, and encourage students to bring their smartphone or CDs to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes. 


Do I need to purchase a guitar to learn the instrument?

SoCal Music Studio offers acoustic and electric guitars for student lessons (for your convenience, students can use one of ours for the first month). You may continue to rent the guitar for $17/month after the first month. We also offer a variety of instruments appropriate for beginners, starting at just $89.00.
