Guitar Lessons For All Skill Levels

Beginner Guitar Lessons

Beginner guitar lessons at Green Hills Guitar Studio teach you how to play basic open position chords, foundational strum patterns and rhythms, exposure to different time signatures and listening for rhythm. You will learn common chord progressions to play along with your favorite songs.

Get technical skills—like how to use a capo—when you need them. We don’t work according to some prescribed schedule that doesn’t have practical applications. Even if you’ve never picked up a guitar or bass before, you can learn to play the songs you want to hear.

If you’re not ready to take private guitar lessons with a professional Nashville guitarist, our Absolute Beginner’s Guitar Course has everything you need to get started.

Intermediate Guitar Lessons

At an intermediate level, guitar lessons at Green Hills Guitar Studio again are student-driven skills-based lessons that help guitar players learn the techniques to expand their abilities and repertoire. This is an area we specialize in because we approach it differently than other studios.

Working on your technique is valuable and important, but equally important is developing your ability to play dynamically and with a deeper knowledge of phrasing. Paying attention to what the other musicians are playing, playing as a unit and understanding the form and structure of music is very important in developing as a musician. Here, you will deepen your ability to actively listen and improve your ear training.

Shake up your normal woodshedding patterns and get a fresh perspective on your playing. Learn how to make different connections with the instrument and your music and deepen your well of inspiration. Our students are professional and amateur musicians in Nashville and around the world looking for techniques to keep them at the top of their game.
