At Summertown Music Studios we offer guitar instruction in a number styles related to both acoustic and electric instruments. Whether you're just beginning or an advanced player we have something for you. We have the patience, experience, and knowledge to make  your lessons both enjoyable and successful.

Acoustic guitar can be played in so many ways and adds "color" to any performance whether as a lead instrument or as a driving backup for vocalists and rock and bluegrass tunes.

If folk music is your thing, we can teach you finger style playing, with or without fingerpicks, that will make your songs sound authentic and powerful.

One of our favorite electric styles is the increasingly popular "country rock" in the style of Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban. More traditional country styles, sometimes referred to as rockabilly, capture the nuances of players like James Burton ( Ricky Nelson, Elvis, John Denver etc.).

If blues is your thing, consider exploring the music of Eric Clapton, Robert Johnson, BB King, or Stevie Ray Vaughn and currently popular players like John Mayer. The blues genre, is wide and deep and steeped in myth and cultural history.

You don't have to be interested in pursuing a professional career to enjoy playing guitar. Learning some of your favorite songs and playing them for friends and family or for your own private enjoyment can be very therapeutic as well as fun.  Perhaps you might even get an idea for an original song or two.

If you don't own an instrument yet, we'd be happy to consult with you and recommend a suitable guitar and even accompany you to one of the many local retailers to assist you in making the right purchase.

Let us help you begin your musical adventure on the guitar. Call today to schedule your complimentary lesson. You never know where it might lead.
