How It Works: Setting Up Your First Guitar Lesson

1 Contact Us

Call us or send us an email and we will help you with selecting the right music course for you or your child. Do you need an electric guitar or an acoustic guitar, bass and violin or viola before the first lesson? Just reach out and we will help you select the instrument that’s right for your needs and budget.

2 Book

Once you have contacted us and are ready to start, we will pair you with an available teacher who matches your request and schedule your first lesson.

3 Play & Repeat

Payment is only due after your first guitar lesson and only if you are fully satisfied. If the teacher is not a good fit, the lesson will be free of charge.

After you have had your first lesson and are happy with your teacher, make sure to practice daily to improve. And don’t forget to have fun! Who knows, we might soon see you performing at one of our recitals.

Frequently Asked Questions

What age should my child start instrument lessons?

The minimum age recommended for starting lessons is seven years old. Due to the thickness of the strings and fine motor skills needed to play the instrument, we do not recommend children to study a string instrument at a younger age.

Do I need an instrument to start lessons?

Yes, you will need an instrument to start your lessons. Without an instrument, you won’t be able to practice in-between lessons and make musical progress. If cost is a concern, instruments for beginners are inexpensive. We can advise you in a purchase of the suitable instrument for you.

“It was such a pleasure to work with Stan Paleco on various music projects over the past few years, and when I was release my own project for my first solo album, Stan kindly support and was played on my few songs greatly. Stan Paleco is firm person, passionate, easy to work with and of course a great musician. I can’t recommend him enough and look forwarding for the future projects together!”
