Guitar Lessons at Northstar
Small class sizes and great teachers make learning how to play the guitar fun. Strum your first chords, rock some cool riffs, and play along to your favorite songs.
The guitar is one of the most popular instruments kids want to learn. And it's no wonder why. They see rock stars and bands on television, youtube, and social media all of the time! We recommend starting guitar lessons around age eight. Guitar strings can be tough on young hands. Any younger and you run the risk of scaring off a future guitarist with blisters and sore hands.
The electric guitar and classical guitar are good instruments to start on because they are easier on the fingers. Lessons at Northstar are fun and packed with the essentials needed to start your musical journey. Some basics our students learn include; How to read standard music notation, open notes, strumming patterns, and basic chords.
Group Guitar Class
Our group guitar classes are perfect for the beginner guitar student. Learn at your own pace while playing with students just like you. Grow in confidence and learn the basics all while having fun with others.
Students at Northstar Music have the opportunity to perform on stage twice a year. These performances give our young musicians an amazing experience and builds self confidence.
We also offer bass guitar lessons. Wanna be a part of the rhythm section of a band? Here is your chance! Learn how to really keep the low end of a song going.
Play your favorite songs
One of the best ways to learn an instrument it to play along to music that you actually like. At Northstar we try and get our students playing along to music, or learn songs that they like, as quickly as possible. This helps the student gain more interest and have more incentive to practice at home.
Improve social skills and gain confidence
Having the chance to play music with other people and collaborate creatively is a great way to make new friends. It also gives perspective as you learn and grow.
Playing any instrument has many health benefits. It can reduce stress and anxiety, bring happiness and pleasure by releasing endorphins, help develop motor skills, improve memory and cognitive function, and encourage confidence and self expression.
