Did you know that rocking out can actually reverse your body’s response system to pressure? Researchers from the Netherlands found that patients who practiced music for more than 100 minutes a day showed a significant drop in blood pressure and a lower heart rate than those who didn’t. Studying a musical instrument can actually benefit your body as well as your brain!
To serve our rockers, rollers, and other many diverse guitar students, we offer lessons in acoustic and electric guitar as well as bass guitar. Students may choose to study a variety of techniques and musical styles, including classical, folk, rock, blues, jazz, pop, metal, country, gospel, and contemporary Christian. Whatever a student’s musical goals, our qualified and experienced guitar instructors will customize lessons to each student’s needs while simultaneously helping them to develop specific musical knowledge and skills appropriate to their level of development as a musician.
During the school year, Private Guitar Lessons are offered Mondays – Thursdays from 1:30 – 8:30 PM, Fridays from 1:30 -6PM, and Saturday mornings. We recommend that students wait to begin guitar lessons until they are at least 7 or 8 years old.
Our Small Group Guitar Classes are designed for beginners and consist of 2-3 students. Placement in a class is based on age, skill level, and availability in the teacher’s schedule. The minimum age for the beginner guitar class is 2nd grade.

INSTRUMENTS: Investing in a quality instrument is an important element in a student’s success. This will make the learning process more enjoyable. If you already have an instrument, please make sure it is in good repair. Guitar students can schedule an evaluation of their instrument with one of our instructors. A nominal fee may apply to repairs and maintenance on instruments. Sometimes minor adjustments can make a world of difference in the way an instrument plays. Student-size guitars may also be rented from the Rockwall School of Music, based on availability, for an additional $20/month.
