You Can Will Learn How to Play Guitar
I'll teach you how!
Welcome to The Guitar Academy.  I'm Jim, the owner and I'd love to be  your future guitar teacher.  If you've wanted to learn how to play the guitar and don't know where to start, you've landed at the right place.  Let me tell you why:

  • I specialize in teaching beginners and have spent 20 years doing it.  I LOVE working with beginners and understand the unique struggles you’ll encounter in the learning process.  My experience is going to help you overcome challenges and learn faster. That’s a promise!

  • I'm an experienced teacher!  I've taught over 40,000 private lessons. (Every time I say that I feel old!) I've taught all ages and all levels. Teaching is a skill and like any other skill,  the more you do it, the better you get.  I've done it a lot!

  • I'll be your teacher, not someone just starting out.   Sometimes you only get one shot at learning how to play the guitar and you need a really good teacher to help you.  An inexperienced teacher can hurt your chances of success!  The good news is that all the skill I've gained teaching over the years will be used to help you learn quickly and easily.  

  • You're going to have a lot of FUN!  That's because I'm going to teach you how to play the guitar by using some of your favorite songs as your lesson plan.

I’d love an opportunity to help you or someone you care about learn how to play the guitar.  I offer a free one-on-one lesson to check us out.  Let's set up a time to meet.  I'll explain what I do, answer your questions and help you anyway I can.    To schedule your free lesson, click the orange button below!

"We Highly Recommend!

We Love the Guitar Academy
​"Our 10 year old son has taken guitar lessons for two and a half years. The first year he took lessons with an instructor while we were living in California. The last 14 months, he has taken private lessons from Mr. Greer. The difference between the two teaching styles is amazing. Our son has blossomed under the instruction of Mr. Greer. Mr. Greer has a wonderful teaching style and is able to easily connect to his students. He inspires them through his knowledge, through his positive attitude and through the music. Our son really enjoyed having his lessons tailored specifically to him with songs he chose from his own song list. Mr. Greer's passion is infectious and his knowledge is paramount. We would highly recommend him to anyone interested in guitar lessons."    Ty and Lori
