Lessons are available for adults and children age six and older. Students learn solid technique so that they play the guitar with good posture and hand movements. Basic music theory is taught along with reading music notation, chord construction, and knowledge of the fret board. Amy teaches her students to become well-rounded musicians and encourages them to attend local concerts and perform in recitals that she frequently organizes. She has prepared students for acceptance at university music programs, The Orange County High School of the Arts (OCHSA), and the Academy for the Performing Arts (APA). Amy is very patient and works well with people of all ages and backgrounds.
Guitar lessons are scheduled for the same time each week for either half hour or hour sessions. Lessons are paid for monthly on the first lesson of each month. Please contact Amy directly to schedule lessons.
