Guitar Lessons in Provo

By Chris M. - Provo Guitar Teacher

Nestled snugly in the Utah Valley, Provo is home to a surprisingly thriving music scene. If you're taking guitar lessons in Provo, you're in good company; famous artists such as Neon Trees, Imagine Dragons, The Used, Fictionist, and Mindy Gledhill all got their start right here in Provo.

Want to hear some awesome guitarists in your area? Check out hot spots like Velour and Muse on University Avenue, and The Wall at BYU to see up-and-coming and well-established bands, singers, and songwriters. Many of these venues also host weekly open mic nights, where all are welcome to perform.

Provo is also home to several well-known professional recording studios, like June Audio, Audio West, and Studio Studio Dada. These recording studios boast a diverse clientele of artists from Neon Trees to local groups like the Lower Lights.

While the Provo area is known for its vibrant indie scene, there are lots of opportunities to experience a wide variety of music. Besides live rock music, catch a performance from the One Voice Children’s Choir, a non-profit organization that works to inspire, enrich, and uplift the community through music. You can also check out the Utah Valley Symphony, college performance groups, and performing arts and music venues like the Covey Center for the Arts and the Scera Theatre.

When you're taking guitar lessons in Provo, there are several stores to choose from if you need new strings, sheet music, or any other supplies. Some of the best music shops include Summerhays for pianos and keyboards, classical strings, and band instruments; Best in Music for sheet music, guitars, and electronic gear; and Bert Murdock Music for a mix of all of the above. Best in Music is an especially good place for guitar repair.

I teach guitar, bass, and cello, and I also play occasional gigs in the area. I have hosted clinics and sectional rehearsals at local public schools, and with the Utah Valley Youth Symphony. My first priority is to teach you how to practice on your own. This is, after all, where most of the progress takes place. I also focus on teaching you to improvise solos; we start this as early as one month into lessons. All the while, I incorporate music theory, solid rhythmic security, and a little bit of history (as much as you can handle). I also strive to help you learn to use your body; knowing which muscles are at work, avoiding unnecessary tension, breathing, and managing performance anxiety.

My philosophy is that if you work hard, and dedicate yourself, you can learn to play and perform just like your favorite rock stars! The good news is that I’m just one of several incredible guitar teachers in the Provo area. Start your guitar lessons in Provo today!

Excellent Teacher.

I'm an experienced player, so I can't exactly say that he'd be good for someone who's just picking up a guitar. But he does an excellent job teaching technicality and musicality, which is something that many teachers lack these days. When I looked for a teacher I wanted someone who would help me better myself as a musician in a style I wasn't very familiar with. By musician, I mean someone who is not only technically proficient, but also very musical and a very good interpreter of music. So far he's helped me a lot in all of those aspects, while managing to keep a comfortable learning pace. I'd recommend him to anyone who really wants to push themselves musically.

West New York, NJ

I believe that teaching guitar requires a balance of structure and spontaneity with some humor and fun mixed in. I believe that learning to play music is a social activity which is ultimately about communicating something deep and meaningful. During the 8+ years that I've been teaching, several of my students have either gone on to play at their school talent shows, attend music college or simply learned to enjoy the pleasure of performing for their family and friends.

About Kaz
Hi! As a music educator, I have been active since graduating with my music performance bachelor's degree from Mason Gross Rutgers University in 2006.

I believe music offers invaluable lessons for developing creativity, hard-work ethic and self-awareness.

I consider myself to be an easy-going but effective teacher. Students have told me that I'm patient and great at explaining difficult things.

Prior to the first lesson, I will ask you for some background information about the student's experience with music
(lessons/teachers, listening habits, attention/focus, etc.).

During each lesson, we will go over fundamental techniques, songs and improving overall musicianship.

I started playing acoustic guitar when I was seven years old. I have been playing and teaching mostly bluegrass, old time, Irish, blues, and swing jazz styles for many years. I have taught both privately and have also done various workshops at festivals. I have taught guitar multiple years for instance at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival in PA.
My students learn to have fun with music. Students can work on rhythms, melodies, improvisation, song writing, getting into and/or hanging on in a jam session, etc.

About Tara
I have a Masters in Education as well as having spent many years performing, teaching in one on one and group settings both privately and at music camps and festivals. I play and teach bluegrass, old time, Irish, and swing jazz styles. I like my students to really enjoy playing music and their lessons as well as learning to become fluent in the language of music. It is not required that folks learn to read music necessarily, but it can be a part of the lessons if desired. I love to see my students able to continue learning and playing on their own, be able to hold their own at jams and on the stage is they so desire, or just enjoy making music for themselves. I have techniques that have proven effective to help get past jam phobia, that help folks learn to improvise who have not had any luck with doing so before, and help getting away fro
m sheet music addictions to be able to have fun and confidence out at jams. I also can give a good foundation in music theory as it applies to one's actual playing and have it be fun and make sense.

She said she was sure she'd get me playing and we'd have some fun, and she was right! She's patient and respectful for where I'm at musically and short fingers and all, I'm finally, after a couple failed attempts at teaching myself, making music with this guitar!

Hi! I teach acoustic guitar for all ages! I have 13 years experience playing and 3 years teaching. I tailor my lessons based on each individual students needs/goals. My specialty is playing and singing together, to include teaching students how to play cover songs to match their vocal range.

About Josh
Hello!

My name is Josh and I love to play guitar! I also enjoy teaching others and helping people find their inner rock star! I've been playing for 13 years, acoustic, electric, bass...you name it. I've been in a few bands (90s covers!) but find solo work to be my favorite setting. I'm fairly new to teaching guitar but have experience with people of all ages (7 - 40). I'm looking to grow my student base and find others who share the same passion for guitar that I do!

I am willing to travel to your location, meet at a park on a nice day, or book studio time (if requested) at a local studio. I also will invite you into my home to practice, whatever works for you!

I'm looking forward to working with you!
