I.R. Guitar Lessons is an Oakland Music School Dedicated to the Guitar.
We provide students of all ages the opportunity to create life-long passion.
We are conservatory-trained teachers with years of experience on the stage and in the classroom. More than instructors, we are role models and mentors dedicated to making sure that every student reaches their full potential.
Our curriculum creates the complete guitarist, so that students can be any type of musician. Students build musical literacy, technique and musical fluency while learning a variety of styles so that they can play Bach today and rock tomorrow.
We teach you to play the guitar in a hands-on setting with real music as the example. From the very first lesson, students learn strumming, plucking and reading music, while using interactive exercises to boost confidence and have fun.
We promote progress by marking students’ achievements with rewards. By completing monthly practice plans, graduating to new books and performing in recitals, students receive awards that keep them excited about learning.
pRIMING sTUDENTS FOR SUCCESS
Beyond music, we teach life lessons. Students make goal-setting and accomplishing routine, reinforce self-discipline and learn to work with others. In addition to becoming great musicians, our students have gone on to be great students at Stanford, UC Berkeley and USC.
Our students are part of an encouraging network of like-minded people who are passionate about music and learning. The I.R. Guitar community provides a supportive environment where we can share, socialize and collaborate.
