About Private Guitar Lessons

Alberta School of music offers private guitar lessons ages 6 and up. Whether your goal is to learn for enjoyment or play classically, our teachers work with your goals in mind.

Students will have an in depth conversation with their teacher to discuss learning objectives. Please take the time to think about what your goals are so that your teacher can guide you in the right direction. There are many different genres and styles that it is important to express where your interests lie so that we can focus on what you want to learn. Lessons cover all aspects of music, including notation reading, rhythmic understanding, aural training, composition, and technique.

Students should own a guitar before beginning lessons. Please be sure to bring your guitar and music book(s) each week to your lesson. Music book(s) will be recommended by the instructor after meeting with the student for the first time.

All lessons take place once a week at one of our school locations.  Lesson durations can be booked in 30, 45, 60 and 75 minute intervals.  Lesson duration ranges based on age, music level, and goals.

Guitar Lesson FAQs
