GUITAR IN PALM BEACH

Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, Spanish, country and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars.

Beginner guitar 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 modern and traditional guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.

We highly recommend our students to bring their own guitar or you can rent/purchase program in a month or two at our Academy.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN YOUR GUITAR LESSONS?

That question is often asked by prospective guitar 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 guitar 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 guitar for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.

The main reason to choose the Academy as your guitar lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every guitar student is an individual.

ABOUT THE GUITAR

The guitar is a fretted musical instrument that usually has six strings. It is typically played with both hands by strumming or plucking the strings with either a guitar pick or the finger(s)/fingernails of one hand, while simultaneously fretting (pressing the strings against the frets) with the fingers of the other hand. The sound of the vibrating strings is projected either acoustically, by means of the hollow chamber of the guitar (for an acoustic guitar), or through an electrical amplifier and a speaker. The guitar is a type of chordophone, traditionally constructed from wood and strung with either gut, nylon or steel strings and distinguished from other chordophones by its construction and tuning. The modern guitar was preceded by the gittern, the vihuela, the four-course Renaissance guitar, and the five-course baroque guitar, all of which contributed to the development of the modern six-string instrument. There are three main types of modern acoustic guitar: the classical guitar (nylon-string guitar), the steel-string acoustic guitar, and the archtop guitar, which is sometimes called a “jazz guitar“. The tone of an acoustic guitar is produced by the strings’ vibration, amplified by the hollow body of the guitar, which acts as a resonating chamber. The guitar is used in a wide variety of musical genres worldwide. It is recognized as a primary instrument in genres such as bluesbluegrasscountryflamencofolkjazzjotamariachimetalpunkreggaerocksoul, and many forms of pop.

FAMOUS GUITAR PLAYERS

In recent decades, the most “notable classical and cross genre” guitarist was Paco de Lucía, one of the first flamenco guitarists to have successfully crossed over into other genres of music such as classical and jazz. Richard Chapman and Eric Clapton, authors of Guitar: Music, History, Players, describe de Lucía as a “titanic figure in the world of flamenco guitar“, and Dennis Koster, author of Guitar Atlas, Flamenco, has referred to de Lucía as “one of history’s greatest guitarists. Despite perceived tendencies in mainstream music diffusion, to Rock music and electric guitar, notable guitarists arrived from other genres and different variations of the guitar instrument such as.Jimi Hendrix was chosen as the greatest guitarist followed by Slashfrom Guns ‘N’ RosesB.B. KingKeith RichardsJimmy Page,and Eric Clapton.
