Guitar Lessons at The Academy Music & Arts
The Academy Music and Arts Long Island offers guitar lessons on acoustic, electric, and bass guitar. Our guitar teachers have university degrees and are all outstanding music educators and performers who teach guitar in many styles including classical, jazz, rock, and pop. They know how to teach proper guitar technique and theory whether a student is interested in anything from classical to metal.
On average, children are ready to start guitar lessons around age 7 – 8 years old. At this age their hands are big and developed enough to play on the guitar and wrap all the way around the neck of the guitar. Some younger students are able to start a little earlier on a smaller sized guitar.
Guitar lessons are offered in our professional studios or our school can conveniently come to your home for a small additional fee throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties. All of our private guitar lessons are one-on-one instruction in lesson lengths ranging from 30 minutes, 45 minutes, and 1 hour. Lesson length depends on the age of the student, skill level, goals, and their ability to practice and prepare new musical material on a weekly basis.
For students who would like to play and perform in a group setting in bands, we offer a rock band program. This pairs up students that have similar skill levels and has them guided in directed rehearsals with a professional instructor on a weekly basis.
All of our students are prepared for and encouraged to perform in our recitals throughout the year. The recitals are kept small on purpose for all the students to have the opportunity to show off their best songs for family and friends. Rock band participants have the opportunity to perform and showcase locally at many different fun venues.
In addition, our school offers guitar ensemble classes for children ages 8 – 12 as well as a class for ages 13 and up. Students can choose between playing acoustic guitar or electric guitar to start. At the end of the guitar class students will either graduate up to the next level of group classes or elect to start private guitar lessons and rock band. Guitar classes are fun and supportive creating a warm, friendly environment. Classes are 45 minutes in length and require each student to bring his or her own guitar with them every week. All guitar classes are meant for beginner level students.
