Learn Guitar in Windsor
We offer private guitar lessons for all ages, in all styles, and work to help students learn through their own creativity to reach their own musical goals. We recommend that new students start their learning on an acoustic guitar. Once a solid foundation is established, specialization in different styles and types of guitar is encouraged.
Don’t have a guitar? Or missing a string or two? Don’t let that stop you from getting started. We offer string changing, cleaning, instrument rentals and sales! Renting is an easy way to give lessons a try without making a full commitment. Perfect for smaller players that will need to upgrade instrument sizes with physical growth.
