Young Beginners ages 6-9? The beginning stages of learning the guitar can be challenging, especially the coordination. Young aspiring guitarists are guaranteed a fun, effective, encouraging beginning in our unique Guitar Teams. These are small class sizes, with a combination of team activities and private lessons for each team member. Mentoring beginning guitar students requires just the right touch! We know from years of experience that  Teams provide impactful, lasting, positive foundations. Research shows students who begin in our Team classes have a better retention rate, exhibiting ‘grit’ in the initial learning stages. These young students are most likely to progress, minus frustration, and stay with their guitar for years to come.  Guitar Teams are the best choice for your 6-9 year old aspiring guitarist – hands down!

Class times for Team Classes are limited, so secure your spot in these special classes today!

Guitar Private Lessons, Ages 6  & up. We focus on GUITAR TEACHING, not retail. Our highly skilled teachers are university- trained in both guitar playing AND music education. They do not come from a guitar shop retail mentality. Our guitar teachers focus all of their energy on fun, engaging activities with a special curriculum designed by the Myriad Music School Guitar Team! Myriad’s classrooms are stocked with fun, unique teaching tools that make the experience dynamic for all ages.

All of our guitar, bass, and ukulele teachers are active performing musicians. Our guitar teachers have university music degrees. They know the proper theory and technique no matter if a student is interested in classical guitar or metal, learning pop/funk bass lines, or strumming a favorite folk tune on their ukulele.

Learn how to jam with teachers or other students, or perform a solo in one of our recitals. No matter what type of guitar lessons you are interested in, we have the teachers to help you.

Typically a student would be 8 before starting guitar lessons, due to their hand size and coordination skills. Students ages 6-8 can begin with a junior sized guitar or ukulele. We recommend registering for Guitar Team first, or Kids’ Ukulele Band here at Myriad to get a great beginning, with solid foundations. Consistent home practice is the other magical component to doing well with guitar, bass, or ukulele lessons.

Our motivating systems are unique to the Myriad Music School. We help students define and know their strengths with the guitar. We teach them foundations, and then show them how to develop rock/blues riffs, classical technique, or song-writing skills, depending on what they are interested in. Students at our school earn medals as they progress through our well-designed curriculum. We have been refining our curriculum over the past 8 years, making it better and more relevant to our students’ goals every year!
