Guitar Lessons

Ages 5 and up

Westminster Arts Academy is the number one guitar lessons program in Orange County, CA.

Get Started

Overview

    Our guitar instructors teach rock, blues, metal, country, and classical styles on both electric and acoustic guitars. Beginners work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory and ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song. We employ a variety of guitar song books in our retail center and have sheet music on hand to sell. The classrooms are equipped with computers and speakers, so students can easily learn and play along to their favorite songs with their instructors.

    Why take guitar lessons?

      The guitar motivates the skill of multitasking, having to form chords with one and strum the guitar with the other. Studies show that children who play guitar perform better in the academics, because of the increased amount of concentration and discipline it takes to learn an instrument. Plus, playing the guitar is simply fun – especially when you have the right instructor.

      What’s the #1 reason to study the guitar at Westminster Arts Academy?

        Our guitar instructors are warm and friendly and get to know each student and parent on a personal level. We work with you to craft a lesson plan that fits your individual needs and the student's favorite type of music. Whether you're playing in local bands, a seven-year-old taking their first lesson, or a fifty year old returning to the guitar after many years, we’ll set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.

        What styles of guitar do you teach?

          We teach all styles, from rock, pop, jazz, and blues to metal, country, and classical guitar – on electric and acoustic guitars.

          How qualified are Westminster Arts Academy's guitar instructors?

            We carefully select instructors that are professionals in the music industry and/or have a college degree in music. All instructors work great with all ages and genuinely love teaching just as much as they love music. Upon registration, tell us your expectations and we will set you up with the right instructor that works for you or your child. See our Instructors page for more information on each instructor.

            What will I learn from guitar lessons at Westminster Arts Academy?

              Beginner guitar students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Our instructors balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson presents a new technical challenges or theory concept, and ends with something fun, such as your favorite riff or song. We employ a variety of guitar song books in our retail center and have sheet music on hand to sell. The classrooms are equipped with computers and speakers, so students can easily learn and play along to their favorite songs with their instructors.

              Do I need to purchase a guitar to learn the instrument?

                The Academy offers guitars for student lessons (for your convenience, students can use one of ours at their first lesson). But to practice at home, you will need a guitar. We offer a variety of instruments appropriate for beginners.

                Are there guitar recitals?

                  Absolutely! Every Summer and Winter, students have the opportunity to perform in a real theater and be treated like a rockstar! Unlike most of our competitors, we do not charge students a fee to perform. All family and friends are welcome to attend. In addition to the on-stage recitals, we also provide virtual concerts and performances around the community. See our performance page for more information.
