Guitar Classes

What happens during Guitar Classes? Students work independently while following a guided lesson plan made for them by their instructor. Their lesson plan checklist changes every week according to what the student needs and their individual pace and also functions as their practice sheet for the week. 

Who are Guitar Classes for? Our classes are designed for children aged 8 to 14 who are beginners at the instrument and want to have fun while learning! 

When is Guitar Class? All classes are currently full but we're still taking private students. Sign up for private lessons at

What will students learn from joining a Guitar Class? They'll learn traditional note and rhythm reading, chords, scales, fretboard knowledge, and how to play songs. This functions largely like a college guitar class - except we've simplified a few things and made our goals more attainable! They'll also gain confidence and will learn how to teach themselves and be self-motivators. The goal of guitar classes is to inspire and instill a love for music making that students will carry for the rest of their lives.

Do we need instruments at home for this class? We have extra guitars around the studio if you don't have one or if yours doesn't make it to class. We're very focused on making music accessible to all and keeping it fun while picking up some new skills along the way. (Disclaimer: you'll have so much fun that you'll definitely want to practice! The more students are around their instrument and playing the more they like their instrument!) Instruments are always available for rent or purchase in Nugent Music & Audio if a student wants to learn at a faster pace.

What is the Cost of Guitar Classes? The fall semester will consist of 12 weeks of lessons for a discounted total of $331. This can be broken down into 4 installment payments of $87, due on the 1st of September, October, November and December.
