We offer beginner Guitar to advanced Guitar lessons at select schools (Online classes are also available). Our At-school classes are taught in small groups (usually 3-4 students per group) If you prefer a smaller setting a semi-private class can be scheduled (2 students per class – “Limited availability”). Online Guitar lessons are taught as private, one-on-one music instruction and are available in lengths of 30, 45, and 60 minutes.


Because of the size and demands of playing the Guitar, we recommend that students be at least 6 years old before starting beginning Guitar lessons. We use a “Musicality First” approach to teaching so students can master the basics of music reading but focus on tone quality, musical timing, chords and style. Intermediate and advanced students focus on improving repertoire and technique, including Chords, Strumming, Finger styles, tuning,  posture, tone quality,  and articulation.

Our Teachers

Our focus is on musicality first and foremost. For this reason, students are able to feel the joy and artistry of musical phrasing and expression right from the start. At FMI, we know that tone production and musical expression are what students will carry with them forever. Therefore, in our Guitar lessons, theory is important and will be large part of the program but nothing can replace the feel of playing in a pleasing conversational manner.
