Whether you want to learn on electric or acoustic, our guitar lessons will have you jamming in no time!! At Scottsdale Music Academy, we’re home to some of the best guitar instructors in Arizona.

From Elvis to Slayer, Taylor Swift to Joan Jett, Jimi Hendrix to Jimmy Page – we can get you up close and personal to the best guitar sounds around. Our specialized guitar teachers are professional musicians in an impressive variety of genres including heavy metal, modern rock, classic, blues, jazz, country, pop, and more! Most of our instructors are the leaders of their own music bands playing around town or even around the world. Whether you’re an experienced pro or an absolute beginner, barely a teenager or a born-again baby boomer, we’ll get your rockin’ and rollin’ in no time.

We will teach you the basics on technique, an infusion of flair and style, and tips of the trade to rock out at your next performance or garage jam. Or if you just want to play a few simple songs that you absolutely love, we’ll teach you everything you need to know to play with confidence and to have fun from the first strum to the last chorus.

We have classes for all ages and levels starting with the one-on-one sessions all the way to group lessons and band creation.

Your private guitar lesson is the playground to test out new styles of music. You’ll learn from your mistakes like a champion, and come out ready to take on the music world. We’ll play the songs you dream about at night and discover new tunes you never thought you could love. This is your practice space to get your playing off the ground or to the next level!
