Our mission on earth is teaching people to play guitar, a mission we take very seriously. You'll
study with a highly trained and experienced music teacher
a baccalaureate or higher degree in music. And, because no two people are alike,
is tailored and paced according to individual needs.
Most beginners are able to play solos like Greensleeves or Malagueña
within 3 to 6 months. As you advance, you can play
the classics or use your skills to build a
foundation for popular and folk styles. Call (808) 679-6154 for more information or an appointment.
Method | You'll be guided through your musical journey with a thoughtful lesson plan and materials. Our method has been tested with thousands of classroom and studio students and distilled within our own textbooks: Frary's Beginning to Play Classical Guitar and Beginning to Play Folk Guitar.
Lesson Format | Lessons
are private, just teacher and student, and given
once a week according to a prearranged schedule. Thirty or sixty minute lessons are available depending
on your musical and financial needs.
Call us at (808) 679-6154 (Oahu) and we'll help you get started
playing guitar, a potential lifetime journey of enrichment,
expression and fun.
