Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Music Lessons

Beginning music lessons

Focus on how to play basic 3 chord songs, how to read tablature or music notation (depending on what instrument you’re learning), knowing and understanding your instrument, positioning and proper form, as well as getting a feel for basic timing, scales, rudiments, or exercises. We’ll also learn to play fun songs and develop a small catalog of songs that other people can easily recognize. Our beginning music lessons is where you will develop a strong foundation for playing your instrument. We will take things slow, and step by step to ensure you understand everything correctly.

Intermediate music lessons

Work more with intermediate techniques, barre chords, some basic music theory, intermediate level sight reading, syncopation, coordination, how to play with other musicians, performing small concerts and shows, as well as developing personality, and timing, dynamics (volume), and structure. Intermediate music lessons will work towards you performing a small set of 3-6 songs in front of an audience, as well as playing with students your age at group lessons, and for live performances.

Advanced music lessons

Focus on things such as music theory, songwriting, odd time signatures, syncopations, advanced level sight reading, learning to play with dynamics (volume), following and leading other musicians, singing and playing at the same time, playing with other musicians, performing concerts and shows, as well as advanced techniques, and speed development. When you take your first music lessons with Lessons That Rock, we will assess your level and guide you towards becoming a better musician. Letting a professional who has “been there and done that”, can really make the difference in your playing. You’ll spend less time looking for answers, and more time figuring out the solutions to questions like “how do they get that sound?” “how do I construct scales”, or “how do switch chords quickly”, and so on.

Group Music Lessons

However, the upside of group music lessons is having a team of other students who you can count on to help answer some questions, and who you can rely on to play songs with. Group music lessons are an inexpensive and fun way to get started with music lesson.
