The Top 10 Reasons to take Guitar Lessons at The Guitar Academy

  1. Experience
    We have taught over 40,000 individual guitar lessons mostly in Colorado Springs, and we are PASSIONATE about teaching.  We love teaching beginners!   We customize lessons plans for every student, so so any learning style can have fun while learning.
  2. Our Owner IS the Teacher
    The Guitar Academy is owner operated.  That means you are taking guitar lessons with the owner himself and not a hired employee.  This also means you will benefit directly from his lifetime of teaching experience, currently over 40,000 lessons.
  3. Enjoyment!
    We make learning guitar FUN.  You won’t be learning to play “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” (unless you want to!) or “Skip To My Lou, My Darling”.  One of your first assignments is to make a list of 12 to 15 songs that YOU would LOVE to be able to play on guitar.  We will use those songs to teach you how to play guitar.
  4. Safety
    Each studio is fitted with windows that are always unobstructed so you can watch the lesson being taught. Of course, parents can ALWAYS sit in on lessons.  In addition we have a ‘open door policy’ where a parent or sibling can come and go during a family members lesson.
  5. Convenience
    We are located in Colorado Springs, not online.  Our guitar instructor teaches guitar lessons from 12pm to 8pm Monday - Friday so there is always a day and time that will work for your schedule.   We accept credit cards to make it more convenient for you to pay for lessons.
  6. No Contracts.....Ever!
    You won't sign any contracts here, so you are not locked into anything long term. Guitar lessons are booked on a month by month basis.  You can can continue to take lessons as long as you like or stop any time you want.
  7. Patient
    We LOVE helping people learn how to play guitar.  Having learned ourselves and having taught hundreds of others to do the same, we know it is a process. More importantly, we enjoy the process.  Patience is our middle name.
  8. Special Needs are No Problem!
    Some of our students live with Autism, ADD, ADHD and other various challenges.  Jim has worked with many of these students, loves doing it, has had great success and believes unquestionably that anyone can learn how to play guitar. Anyone!
  9. We Can Record Your Lesson
    Students will always leave their guitar lesson with written homework. To make your lesson even more helpful, we allow you to record portions of the lesson so you can watch and learn at home.  There is no extra charge for this.
"We would like to give our complete endorsement of Mr. Greer as a miracle worker.  When our 9-year old son started taking guitar lessons, we weren't sure exactly how it was going to turn out.  But with encouragement form Mr. Greer, he started to blossom very quickly.  

Our son is very shy and quiet but through Mr. Greer's dedication, patience, and outstanding mentorship, we are seeing a whole new side to our son.  He is now asking for more challenging songs to learn, and Mr. Greer has a way of teaching them so that they are easily picked up.  He has motivated our son to perform in two talent shows in front of an audience of more than 200 people.  he now feels great about himself and is showing real promise as a young musician.  We couldn't be happier."
