Test drive a lesson before committing to a monthly plan with an intro lesson. It's a great way to meet your teacher, get a feel for their style, and see if private lessons are for you.

We believe that recognizing progress by distributing rewards inspires students to achieve more than they ever thought possible.  With the completion of each step of our curriculum, students are awarded with prizes, medals and certificates to give their progress meaning.

Proven track record

Our students have won talent shows and guitar competitions, scored in the top 1% on music examinations, and even recorded full-length albums.  In addition to being great musicians, many of them have gone on to be great students at Harvard, Stanford and Duke University.

preparing students for excellence

Since I.R. Guitar Lessons' inception, we have been teaching students to set their own goals and reach them with their own efforts.  The self-discipline, group skills and performance practices they learn prepare them to succeed in the academic and professional world.

Performance opportunities

Performing is a vital aspect of learning to play the guitar, and our students enjoy recitals and ample performance opportunities.  Always optional and pressure-free, these chances to play and perform with and for others is a shaping point for young guitarists.

fun, hands-on approach

There is no reason that learning any musical concept cannot be enjoyable.  Our curriculum is fun, hands-on and exciting while still being holistic and rooted in proper technique and musical literacy.  We give you the tools to play Bach today and rock tomorrow.
