(for ages 7+ see ukulele lessons for ages 5+)
Our guitar instructors teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars. Beginner guitar students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept each lesson, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.
Guitar lessons are taught at 423 Chestnut Street in the FUMC education building near the Leavenworth Courthouse and Public Library.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN YOUR MUSIC LESSONS?
That question is often asked by prospective guitar students. At the Leavenworth Music Academy we make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.
We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach.
A seven year old having the first of their acoustic guitar lessons will have very different needs than a fifty-seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.
The main reason to choose the Leavenworth Music Academy as your guitar lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.
If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.
WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC DO YOU TEACH?
We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, and classical, and folk.
ARE YOUR INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?
Yes! Our teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions such as University of Kansas, UMKC Conservatory, and Washburn University. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities and are friendly. We strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.
