Guitar lessons in Staten Island at DEA Music & Art.

June Recital 3

At DEA we offer individual guitar classes as well as guitar ensembles & rock bands.

Students in our guitar class have a perfect opportunity to β€œjam” with fellow guitarists while learning songs from classic rock. This specialized course introduces young guitarists to improvisation techniques and teaches them to listen to other people as well as themselves in order to improve in their trade. They learn musical properties such as harmony and chord progressions, which are both vital to a guitarist’s musical education.

Individual guitar lessons offer students a one-on-one working environment with dedicated and experienced teachers. Students will learn essential guitar techniques, including convenient fretting hand and picking technique as well as skilled use of chords and scales. Of course no guitar lesson goes without note reading.

We believe that public performances provide invaluable experience for our students. This is why we host seasonal recitals where students have the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience.

Guitar teachers at DEA music and art are professional, fun and knowledgeable. All of our teachers are masters in their craft! DEA has multiple programs, performances and events year-round to keep kids busy and engaged.

DEA has always taken the cleanliness of our studios and learning environments very seriously. We disinfect our instruments after each class and students are asked to wash their hands before each class starts!
