Guitar in Columbus

Simply taking guitar lessons in Columbus is often insufficient to mastering the instrument. Instead, you need to find motivation and discover new styles of playing by watching other musicians, learning more than just the pieces you cover in your lessons by purchasing sheet music and tablature, and enhancing your playing by performing live or finding new gear. Here are a few ideas to make the most of learning guitar in Columbus.

1) Guitar Festivals Jazz Guitar Festival Held at Denison University, the annual Jazz Guitar Festival is a weekend of performances, concerts, and clinics, all of which are free and open to the public. It is your chance to meet top guitarists, whatever your level of playing, and experience genres ranging from classical to bluegrass. Attend every October, and return to your guitar lessons in Columbus feeling inspired. (http://denison.edu/academics/music/whats-happening/18th-annual-denison-jazz-guitar-festival)

LMU Guitar Festival Loyola Marymount University holds the annual Guitar Festival every March, inviting guitarists from around the world to perform in a weekend of concerts.

Live Music The Tree Bar This bar and live music venue presents a different local or national act up to five nights a week.
