Music Theory for Guitarists course (in-studio or online)

Music Theory for GuitaristsHave you been playing the guitar for years, but feel as if there is a ‘hole’ in your understanding of the instrument? Do you struggle with playing with others, or improvising solos? Do you feel ‘stuck’ and haven’t progressed on the guitar as you feel you should be?
We believe that learning music theory for guitarists is an essential skill that will help you overcome those problems. Our course, Music Theory For Guitarists, is invaluable for guitarists looking to improve their improvising skills, learn new songs and solos, and compose their own music.
This course is ideal for the experienced guitarist who has never had formal training.

Our four week Music Theory For Guitarists course will cover the following topics in detail:

  • Beginning music theory: notes and the chromatic scale.
  • Song keys, and what chords & scales fit in what key (and why)?
  • What are chord progressions?
  • What are scale modes?
  • What scales do I REALLY NEED to learn?
  • How are chords (major, minor, seventh, augmented, diminished, etc) built?
  • What is a triad, and how can I use it when improvising?
  • Much more based on the student’s level.
This is a one-on-one course that can be tailored to each individual. Note that this course is available both online, or in our Manchester NH studio. The course consists of four hour-long courses which can be scheduled by the student based on their availability. It is a perfect gift for the guitarist in your life.
