Ready to play guitar?

Trade In Your Air Guitar

It seems as though virtually everyone wants to learn the guitar at some point in their life. Playing the guitar is not only fun, but with practice, most people can start playing many common songs within 4-8 weeks! This is one reason that students of all ages choose to take guitar lessons. Whether you’re learning acoustic or electric guitar, and if your passion is rock, blues, flamenco, country, Spanish, jazz or metal, Music By Ross has an instructor to take you from A to Z!

Video tutorials, DVDs and books can frustrate those learning the guitar, and regrettably this can lead to putting the guitar down for an extended period of time, or forever. Students who receive private guitar lessons from a professional instructor receive individual feedback and on average learn up to 60% faster!

Here are some advantages to taking private in-home guitar lessons:

  • Fully customized lessons – no “one size fits all” lessons
  • No traffic and no scheduling hassles – take lessons in your best learning environment
  • Learn to play guitar from a certified, local guitar instructor

Our guitar instructors are ready to get you started no matter where you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Music By Ross also offers online guitar lessons. Sign up today!

Why take lessons?

When you first start learning how to play an instrument, holding a note for a couple of beats or hitting a high pitch feels like an amazing achievement. As you practice and become a more experienced musician, making music enjoyable, not only to your ear but to others’ as well, is a very rewarding experience. Taking music lessons from an experienced instructor who knows how to assess individual skill levels and tailor your lessons to your particular ambitions will help you meet your goals much faster.

Here are some other ways you can benefit from learning an instrument:

  • Studies show that learning an instrument increases self-confidence, memory, and has proven to relieve stress.
  • Music lessons have been found to improve how the brain processes the spoken word. This finding could lead to improving the reading ability of children who have dyslexia and other reading problems.
  • A study by E. Glenn Schellenberg at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, as published in a 2004 issue of Psychological Science, found an increase in the IQs of six-year olds who were given weekly piano and voice lessons.
  • Studies have shown that students who play instruments are often better in math and achieve higher grades in school than students who don’t. Source: Friedman, B.
