Probably one of the most popular instruments in the world, the guitar offers versatility far beyond almost any other instrument. From country to classical, Spanish to jazz, folk to flamenco, pop to rock, from concert stages to campfires, the guitar holds a place in more homes than any other single instrument. And, it's certainly easier to carry than a piano!
The guitar is possibly the most played instrument in the United States, if not the world. However, it certainly is not the easiest. Lessons are offered for children and adults, beginning through virtuoso. We do recommend that very young children (under 10) begin with the piano unless they are extremely motivated, coordinated, and well developed. I should also note that young students do require their parents to participate in the lessons so they can oversee and encourage daily practice.
