Acoustic & Electric Guitar Lessons

Acoustic & Electric Guitar Lessons

All guitar students at the Music Academy of Garden City learn how to read music beginning in their first lesson. Unlike many other studios, we stress the importance of reading proper notation (not just tablature), learning correct left and right hand technique, and learning music theory. Music Academy of Garden City guitar instructors are well versed teaching variety of styles including rock, blues, jazz, classical, and even bluegrass.

At the MAGC, we believe it is critical for guitarists to learn how to read music, improvise, and learn theory in addition to learnin to play by ear since many of our younger students eventually decide to participate in their junior high or high school jazz bands. Without this proper foundation, guitar students will not have the necessary skills to participate and excel in school ensembles.

Music Academy of Garden City guitar instructors are also experts in NYSSMA preparation. Each year MAGC students participate in NYSSMA festivals and receive outstanding scores in every level and genre. Our faculty members have been preparing students for success in NYSSMA since 2006.
