Guitar lessons are fun for students at Arlington Heights Music Academy! Our guitar teachers are friendly and patient. Each teacher possesses a university degree and a variety of guitar skills so that each student can progress from beginning to advanced instruction with the same teacher, creating a lasting bond and mutual understanding that can help the student learn in the best way possible. Students will gain an understanding of music theory and guitar technique. We base the learning process on the student’s goals – they can learn acoustic, electric, classical, or bass guitar, and have the option of learning classical music, rock, and more, based on their interests. Our instructors can teach both guitar tab and sheet music, giving the student the option to learn in whatever way best fits their goals and learning process.
We keep students interested in their lessons through a combination of incentives, performance opportunities, and making lessons fun with the use of games that teach as well as entertain. All lessons include the opportunity to win weekly prizes and end-of-year medals through earning points based on at-home practicing. Students are also given the chance to compete in music festivals and theory tests to further increase their musicianship. We also provide three recitals per year as an opportunity for the student to perform! The recitals are a wonderful way for the student to share with his or her family the skills they have learned, as well as having the chance to hear the performances of other students.
The benefits of learning and instrument are lasting – experts agree that learning to play an instrument improves test scores, fine motor skills, self-confidence and problem solving, as well as fostering a love and understanding of the art of music. Guitar is a skill that can be a benefit for a lifetime, with many opportunities to continue performing and enjoying the instrument for years to come.
