Guitar Lessons and Classes for Children and Adults made Fun and Rewarding!!!

BGA has a conducive program that teaches acoustic, classical and electric guitar. We introduce students to all different styles of music, allowing them to get a well-rounded sense of the many ways to play guitar. In each course or private lesson, students will learn to play the acoustic, classical and/or the electric guitar using their fingers and a plectrum for strumming and picking via Classical, Flamenco/Spanish, World and popular music such as Rock/Blues. Students will be taught aurally as well as visually to allow them to develop their listening, reading and remembrance skills.

About the owners:

Elysa and Jason (a married couple) are performers and instructors of Spanish, Flamenco and Classical guitar. Elysa and Jason teach children (starting at the age of 6), adolescents and adults. Each age group is taught with its own unique and comprehensive curriculum that is modified accordingly when needed, allowing for all students to succeed and progress at playing guitar.

Check out Elysa and Jason's music page to get a sense of their technique:

Jason also teaches a variety of other styles, including funk, jazz, blues and more. Check out Jason's other music page:

Elysa and Jason always promote students to collaborate and create music together. Students perform every month for friends and family. This is a great way for students to make music, stay interested and develop confidence and musicality.
