Guitar Lessons

Music has to be fun, and we want our students to play well.  We teach using tablature, traditional note-reading and music theory, all at appropriate levels.  Our teaching methods incorporate a performance-based approach. We use basic guitar methods by publishers Hal Leonard, Mel Bay and Alfred.  We use materials by Wolf Marshall andTroy Stetina; all students must work from an appropriate guitar method.  At the String Connection, we are serious about guitar and serious about students having fun while they learn.
