Acoustic Guitar Lessons



Our guitar instructors teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical styles on both electric and acoustic guitars. Beginners work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Our instructors get to know each student’s interests and goals, and craft custom lesson plans. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory, and Guitar students are encouraged to bring their favorite songs to try and master.

What’s the #1 reason to study acoustic guitar at Manasquan Music Academy?

Our guitar instructors are warm and friendly, and get to know each student and parent on a personal level. We work with you to craft a lesson plan that fits your individual needs and the student’s favorite type of music. Whether you’re playing in local bands, a seven year old taking their first lesson, or a fifty year old returning to the guitar after many years, MMA has fun, personalized lessons for kids, teens and adults that offers all the benefits of our beginner lessons, but is tailored to capture the attention of all students and set them on a path to music proficiency.

What’s a good age for kids to learn guitar?

Children under 8 years old generally have a difficult time learning the guitar. For children 6 and under we suggest Ukulele lessons to start their journey as it’s easier on their hands!

What styles of guitar do you teach?

We teach all styles, from rock, pop, jazz, and blues to metal, country and classical guitar – on electric and acoustic guitars.

How qualified are your guitar instructors?

Our guitar and music instructors have received their education from institutions such as The Berklee College of Music, Rutgers, Rowan, Cairn University, Monmouth University, and Brookdale. Many have toured the US, and continue to gig out at local venues!

What will I learn from guitar lessons at the Manasquan Music Academy?

Beginner guitar students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Our instructors balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson presents a new technical challenge or theory concept, and ends with something fun, such as your favorite riff or song.

Do I need to purchase a guitar to learn the instrument?

Manasquan Music Academy offers acoustic and electric guitars for student lessons (for your convenience, students can use one of ours at their first lesson). But to practice at home, you will need a guitar.
