guitar Guitar

"A guitar is a small orchestra... Every string has a different color, different voice."  
Andres Segovia

 

 

 The guitar's wide appeal as a folk instrument has made it one of the most popular instruments in the world. Great performers and composers have worked to promote the guitar as a versatile instrument that has made its way from family music making and accompanying dancers to the most prestigious stadiums and concert halls.   

We offer classical and acoustic guitar lessons to students ages 6 through adult.

 We use various method books to introduce notation and techniques, repertoire sheets and teacher arrangements.  The students study chord progressions and play duets with the teacher.    Younger students will begin with a preparatory course which is mainly music-making duets with the teacher and singing or accompanying simple songs.

They can take private or semi-private 30 or 45 min. lessons.      There are guitars of different shapes, styles and sizes that can be played with either metal or nylon strings.The teacher will gladly help you to choose the right instrument for you or your child. We invite you to listen to some notable guitarists from Classya Collection (click on“Learn and Hear”).    

Here are more inspirational quotations from Segovia on the guitar:

  • "Among God's creatures two, the dog and the guitar, have taken all the sizes and all the shapes, in order not to be separated from the man." 

  • " Lean your body forward slightly to support the guitar against your chest, for the poetry of music should resound in your heart."
