That is a great question! Our guitar teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal learning style and musical goals. Your teacher will ask about your favorite type of music and help you set goals to achieve whatever musical aspirations you (or your child) have. 

We do not treat every guitar or bass student the same in terms of what and how we teach. A 7-year old having their first lesson will have very different needs than a 57-year old returning to guitar after having had lessons as a child.

The main reason to choose Rick’s Music World as your lesson provider is that we are sensitive to the fact that every guitar student is an individual.
