Adult Guitar Lessons

Since 1994 we have taught hundreds of adults how to play the guitar in Oakville!  Over the years we have learned one very important thing.   Adults don’t generally want to learn “Mary Had a Little Lamb”.  Every adult has there own ideas of what they want out of their guitar lessons.  Our guitar teacher’s are happy to teach you songs that you really want to learn.  Whether you want to play acoustic guitar around the camp fire or rock out to some ACDC we have the right teachers for you.

Our one-on-one private guitar lessons mean that the teacher can focus 100% on the music you love. You can take private guitar lessons for 30 minutes or 1 hour per week.  We also offer guitar lessons 7 days a week because we know that you’re busy.  With lessons available early in the day and later at night we’re sure to find a time that works for your hectic schedule.

Frequently Asked Questions About Guitar Lessons at The Academy of Music:

What do you learn in your guitar lessons?

That question is askes by many of our adult students. Our guitar teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.

We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach. A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than an adult taking up the guitar for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.

Will I play in a recital?

All of our students have the option to participate in our recitals at least twice a year.  Recital are totally optional.  As an adult you will not be forced to play for people you don’t know.  But hey, you might like it!

What is the best age to start guitar lessons?

Adults can start guitar lessons at any age!

What styles of guitar do you teach?

We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, blues and classical.

Are your guitar instructors qualified?

Our guitar teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions such as York University, Western University, Humber College, Mohawk College, and the University of Toronto. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of Canada, the US, and Europe and have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.
