How we hold the guitar has a lot to do with what style of guitar you are playing.  Often the type of guitar we choose will influence the style of music we learn. If you are a beginner with a desire to play guitar but do not know where to start, music lessons may be your answer.At Leyenda Guitar, students will be  guided in developing positive practice skills, proper posture habits and a variety of techniques for both left and right hands. Instruction in pick-style melodic playing, found in the jazz and blues genres, is also taught.

Many students will find themselves settle into a preferred genre of study; for example classical guitar and notation reading or acoustic style finger-picking.  

Become the player you want to be!

As a professional guitarist and certified educator for over 30 years I have taught hundreds of students how to play in a variety of guitar styles. Topics cover all aspects of learning an instrument and include reading music notation and tablature, fretboard theory, choosing an instrument, changing strings and even writing your own songs. Students interested in singing and strumming are also invited to pursue private instruction.
