All music lessons at WCGA combine solid instruction in music fundamentals with the student’s personal interests and goals. Guitar students will learn chords, scales, terminology, and technique along with note reading, chord progressions, and theory. Teacher duets are common in our lessons to develop listening and timing skills. Our guitar teachers make sure every student understands the fretboard in order to execute challenging melodies and riffs along with chords that are suitable for popular, rock, jazz and other styles of music. Teachers craft each lesson to incorporate the fundamentals of guitar playing with the personal interests of each student.

Nick made first experience super fun for my daughter. She is looking forward for the next session.

My two boys ages 8 and 9 started taking piano lessons with Nick about a year ago and they love it! He is very professional, always on time, and keeps them entertained the whole time! Although they are progressing at different rates, Nick is always patient and encouraging. I highly recommend Nick and his teaching abilities!
Stacey
My two daughters have been taking guitar lessons with Nick for 2-1/2 years, both on acoustic guitar and electric guitar. He has even taught my younger daughter how to play the ukulele. Nick is an awesome guitarist teacher. My girls have learned so much from him - how to read and write music, bar chords, strumming patterns, music theory and all different genres of music (like jazz, classical and even reggae). Nick can listen to any song my daughters want to learn, then immediately put the notes down on paper and teach it to them. Under his tuition, they’ve performed solo gigs, in their school talent shows, and for and with their friends. My older daughter also plays electric guitar in a teenage rock band. Thanks so much, Nick!!

He is a great teacher he helps you learn it so you can understand, he simplifies what your having a hard time on and then you'll get it

Tim is a really nice and patient teacher. I did not have any drum experience before, but Tim arranges the first courses from basic rhythm practice, and also asked me to set up a long goal of playing drum cover of my favorite song. So the drum lesson is always interesting and compact, which makes me want to practice more in my spare time. I hope I could follow up the courses with more improvement and did better with his guidance.

Were you curious about blues guitar? I'm the teacher you've been looking for. Of course I'll start you off with theory, but theory will help you to understand the workings of what makes blues guitar so good. I will be a good teacher for you because I can start you off right.

About Larry

First off, I want to mention something that potential Philadelphian students should be aware of. I can only go to certain sections of the city, and I can only give you lessons on weekday afternoons between 12-2pm. Sorry, no evening classes. I'll need time to travel between New Jersey and Pennsylvan

I teach both electric and upright bass. My focus is on a healthy and sustainable technique, ensuring fluidity in your playing with minimal strain on your body. Whether you're playing folk, reggae, funk, or metal; fingerstyle, or with a pick, I can help you sound better, play longer, more imaginatively, and more comfortably, and have more fun.

I've been playing folk, country, and rock guitar since 1995, and played upright bass, banjo, and rhythm guitar in gigging old-time bands for ten years. I currently play bass and sing in a cover band, and release original music and collaborations on major streaming platforms (under the name "Dan Easley".)

About Dan

I've been playing music since I was five years old (so, over 35 years now), beginning my 'stage career' as a saxophonist in school bands, then playing guitars, keyboards, accordions, mandolins, banjo, and bass in a variety of live acts throughout my adult life. I've made (as of January 2020) 16

Music Theory is the “rules” of music. Learning music theory helps you bend those rules to make your own music and interpret existing music as more than separate notes. Reading music is like reading a foreign language but instead of speaking it, you transfer it to an instrument or voice.

About Sharon

I love seeing my students learn. I enjoy making music so much that I’m always happy when someone else gets closer to their dream of playing a special piece or being able to figure out sheet music by themselves or whatever it is that they achieve. I am a trained classical musician with Master of Mu

This instrument is the most beautiful and I am very grateful to Hallie that I can carry out the beauty of this instrument. When I was growing up my parents only let me concentrate on academics. I am so grateful to Hallie to help me learn about music!"

5 Good Audition Songs for Musicals by Voice Type

Ready for your big break? Check out this list of good audition songs for musicals to discover all the fantastic options you have to choose from! Musical theatre auditions can be daunting, especially when they’re only asking for 16-32 bars of a song.
