Guitar Lessons

Private Guitar Lessons, Taught In Our Studios and Online. 


“Devin had another great lesson with Andrew today. She just loves him and feels like he really gets where she is coming from musically! She has learned so much so quickly. I can already hear such a difference in her playing!


We offer Guitar Lessons for all levels. 

Our private guitar lessons offer tailored curriculum’s for all ages that are custom designed for the beginning, intermediate and advanced guitar student. We use the latest technology in equipment and teaching methods making our lessons one of the country’s most recognized industry leaders in music lesson innovation. Our staff attends continual education courses and are members of NAMM and the MENC.

Only the best teachers.

We have only long term, background checked teachers in our studios that understand today’s requirements for the modern music student. Most important, our teachers love playing and teaching music. Long term guitar instructor Adam Sturt has been teaching guitar and bass lessons at Progressive Music Center® for over 15 years while instructor Jay Street has been teaching guitar, piano and saxophone lessons with us for well over 10 years and Kevin Wing has been teaching guitar and ukelele lessons at Progressive for over 9 years. Our staff of experienced, degreed guitar and bass instructors also includes Andy Seets, Mike Moniz and Alex Gordez.

For students that can not read standard notation our staff begins simple reading exercises using books such as the Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1 and theory and progression books by Musicians Institute. The reading portion of our beginners curriculum incorporates note recognition, time signatures, note values, hand/eye coordination and more.

Learning to play the Guitar with your favorite music. 

Guitar students will also learn ear training by using their favorite songs and recreating the songs on the guitar by ear. Students will learn to recognize pitch and tone, which will branch into chord theory while learning basic open chord forms and power chords. As students advance they will learn bar chords, Jazz chords and voice leading. This will be demonstrated by using chord progressions (chord progressions are chords put in a musical sequence which makes learning chords a lot more fun).

With single string improv the student learns all the notes on the fretboard with a multitude of exercises. All Major and Minor scales, Pentatonic scales, Blues scales, and Modes are covered. The more advanced students learn improvisation which gives them the understanding to play lead guitar over chord progressions plus phrasing with melodic voice leading.
