Our guitar lessons focus on getting you to quickly be able to play your favorite songs or compositions! The guitar instructors at the Music Academy of Acadiana are all experienced teachers and performers and can help you with any music style that you are interested in learning.
Guitar lessons with an instructor is the quickest way to learn proper techniques, theory, and also can help prevent bad habits from developing. Having a guitar instructor is beneficial in that they can show you in "real time" how a song, lead lick or scale should be played; as other methods of learning can't see if you are playing something correctly or not!

Mandolin and Ukulele are similar instruments as the guitar, but are easier to play for young students. They are smaller and the strings are easier to press down. Plus, they sound amazing and are very popular in music right now!
Our teachers can even help you with guitar repair: such as the set up of your guitar or replacing your strings!

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT WILL I LEARN IN GUITAR LESSONS?
Our teachers understand that every student is an individual, with personal musical needs and goals. We make it a priority to tailor how we teach and what we teach to your individual needs.
If you enroll here for guitar lessons, your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child. Together, you will develop a plan to achieve your goals! We love beginners, so even if you don't know where to begin, we can help!
WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC CAN I LEARN?
We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, worship, blues and classical. We combine the important fundamentals with the music YOU want to play. With 38 teachers at the Music Academy of Acadiana, you are sure to find the best match for YOU.
ARE YOUR GUITAR INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?
Our guitar instructors are highly qualified, all have teaching experience, and most importantly, they have a passion for teaching. Being a musician doesn't automatically make you a teacher--that's why we search for those who are best qualified for mentoring our music students!
We search the entire area for the top teachers, who embody the high values at the Music Academy of Acadiana. Most importantly, our instructors strive to relate their teaching to each individual student's learning style. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the USA and Europe and have years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level. We search high and low for the BEST teachers, so you don't have to!
WHAT'S THE #1 REASON TO STUDY GUITAR AT THE MUSIC 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.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN TO PLAY GUITAR?
There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn to play. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable.
I DON’T HAVE ANY MUSICAL BACKGROUND OR ABILITY. CAN I STILL HELP MY CHILD PRACTICE?
Yes. Even if you don't have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit in on their child's music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands.
