Age recommendations

Our private lessons are appropriate for guitarists aged 5 to 105. For students younger than five, we’re happy to discuss alternatives to private lessons. Somewhere around age 5, a combined increase in finger strength, reading ability, and concentration makes a student ready for private lessons.

Practice expectations

Your guitar teacher will work with you to create a practice plan that works for your student’s schedule. The single most important element of guitar practice is regularity. We know our students are busy! But devoting even a modest amount of time each day to guitar practice produces much better results than relying on weekly “cram sessions.” Ideally, your student will make the guitar a regular part of his or her day.

Piano Power recitals

If your student has been receiving guitar instruction with Piano Power for three months or more, he or she is invited to participate in our annual spring recital. Held in June and December, the recital is a wonderful, low-key way to celebrate your student’s achievements. Our pianists perform a huge variety of repertoire — from classical to original compositions to Top-40 radio hits.
