GUITAR LESSONS in St. Joseph Mo (for ages 6 and up) Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country, and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN YOUR GUITAR LESSON?
Our 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 a fifty seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child. The main reason to choose SJAA as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.
If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself.
WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC DO YOU TEACH?
We teach all styles including rock, pop, jazz, country, blues, and classical.
ARE YOUR INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?
Our teachers have received their education from institutions and universities such as Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory, University of Missouri, UMKC, University of Kansas, Missouri Western State University, Benedictine College, Truman State and the School of “Hard Knocks”. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the US and internationally and have over 20 years of professional performance or 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 parents on a personal level. Also, since we have multiple teachers for every instrument, we could look for lesson times close to each other for your convenience.
ARE LESSONS MONTH TO MONTH?
The Academy does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month to month basis.
If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose as we only want students who truly want to be here and we will not commit you to a long term contract.
We offer lessons 7 days a week, from as early as 9am to as late as 830pm.
We have a rolling admission, so you can start at any time.
