Private Guitar Lessons

Guitar lessons Huntington Beach

Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country, bluegrass, and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading, and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.

We always encourage and help our students to perform with other students. This can be accomplished formally through our annual recital, or informally by performing together with other students at our school's showcases or gathering events.

Free instrument rental program

For those who cannot afford an instrument right away, Concert Music School will pay for the first month rental so your child can try out an instrument with our highly qualified instructors, for example:

- Violin (1/8 to full size)
- Acoustic Guitar
- Electric Guitar
- Flute, Oboe, and other Wind instruments

We usually start students with one 30 minute lesson per week, depending on the student's attention span, and the student/parent's needs. New students receive one free 30mn trial lesson before committing to a tuition plan.

There is a one-time $25 enrollment fee for all students. Households with 3 or more students can get half off enrollment fees after paying full enrollment for the first 2 students.

You may choose our Monthly Tuition Plan, or Pay-Per-Lesson Option. Our Monthly Tuition Plan is best suited for consistent lessons being taken on a weekly basis. Our Pay-Per-Lesson Option is best for less frequent lessons (Bi-weekly or less frequent).

Semi-private Lessons or Private Lessons?

We believe that private guitar lessons offer you the best chance for success. The individual attention that you will receive in private study is far more valuable than the limited attention that you will receive in a group lesson. Even though group classes might seem more affordable, a group teacher is simply unavailable to give you the focused attention you need and will receive from private guitar lessons.

Therefore, we don't offer group guitar lessons. However, we do offer semi-private lessons (2 students per class) but it totally depends on if there are people in the waiting list who also wish to take semi-private. This plan might be suitable for siblings or friends who would like to have lesson together in the first few months to figure things out before taking more invidualized private lessons.

Performance opportunities

Recitals boost confidence! Taking part in a recital helps performers to overcome shyness, fear, anxiety and stage fright. It gives students a chance to showcase all of their hard work, dedication, and progress throughout the year. As children experience getting on stage, performing for an audience, and being applauded for their efforts, they gain self-confidence that will carry with them in all aspects of school and life.

At Concert Music School, we offer a variety of opportunities for our students to perform in a confidence-boosting and supportive setting. We have 2 recitals every year, our Annual Recital in the Spring and a Winter Recital at the end of the year to showcase our students' progress. Students will also receive a trophy at the annual recital.

In addition to annual recitals held at an outside venue, we hold mini-recital at Recital Hall of the school. This will give our students many more performance opportunities throughout the year. We always make sure that students get to perform on a grand piano. For our students these recitals are free.

Refer a Friend and Get Rewards!

We love referrals! Because we have such happy customers, we get a lot of new students through referrals. Getting your child’s friends involved with the program lets them share in similar interests and makes it all that more fun. Or maybe you have friends with children that love music and may want to start learning an instrument? Either way, as a way of saying thanks, we will gift both you and the referred family, each a FREE lesson! There is no limit to the amount of referrals you can make.

Frequently asked questions

What do you learn in your music lessons?

That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.

We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach.

A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty-seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.

The main reason to choose our school as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.

If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.

What styles of music do you teach?

We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, blues and classical.

Are your instructors qualified?

Our teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions such as California State University of Long Beach, Brigham Young University (Idaho), BAKIP Linz (Austria), and many others. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the US and Europe and have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.
