About Guitar Lessons

Free Beginner
Guitar Workshop

If you aren’t sure whether or not you’ll like guitar lessons we have a risk-free way of finding out. Take one of our 90 minute beginners guitar workshops, and you’ll learn the basics parts of the guitar, be introduced to music notation and tablature, and leave being able to play a simple blues melody.

Performance Opportunities

At On Chord Academy we feel that the true goal of learning to play is being able to perform. That is why we provide our students with several opportunities every year to perform, whether it’s in group open jams, school recitals or out in the community at coffee shops and local events.

I’ve been playing guitar for 30 years and am absolutely amazed by what my 8 year old son has learned [at On Chord Academy]. The teachers are amazing, the price is right, and your child will thank you.

Our Guitar Teachers know that learning to
play guitar takes more than chords and scales

Guitar is one of the most expressive and fun instruments to play. It is also one of the most widely played instruments. While every guitarist needs to know chords and scales, strumming and finger patterns, playing guitar is so much more than that. The technical aspects of learning to play guitar are the means, and not the end, of guitar lessons.

We have experienced musicians who teach our students the fundamentals of performance. They also get opportunities to play guitar in live situations, from master classes and recitals to open-stage nights at local music venues hosted by On Chord Academy.
