Learning to play Guitar can be an amazing, life-changing experience. Our program encourages students to express themselves through music and helps them discover their inner artist. The guitar is a musical instrument classified as a string instrument with anywhere from four to 18 strings. The sound is projected either acoustically, using a hollow wooden or plastic and wood box , or through electrical amplifier and a speaker (for an electric guitar). There are three main types of modern acoustic guitar: the Classical guitar (nylon-string guitar), the steel-string Acoustic guitar, and the Archtop guitar, which is sometimes called a "Jazz guitar".
