Guitar Lessons


What’s the #1 reason to study Guitar at The Kitchener Academy of Music?

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, we’ll set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.

What styles of Guitar do you teach?

We teach all styles, from rock, pop and jazz to country, blues and classical.

Our lessons are all one-on-one, and targeted towards what you want to learn!

How qualified are your instructors?

Here at TKAM, we only hire the best guitar instructors! Our instructors all have

formal music education, and lessons are rooted in proper technique and theory. 

What will I learn from Guitar lessons at The Kitchener Academy of Music?

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 favourite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books, and encourage students to bring their smartphone or music to their lesson to learn their favourite tunes.

Do I need to know how to read music?

Not at all! Beginners are welcome, and your teachers will teach you everything you need to know in your lessons.


Do I need a Guitar to learn the instrument?

We do have a full size guitar at our studio which can be used during lessons, but we would recommend that you have a guitar to practice on between lessons. Please contact us at to discuss rental options, or for retail recommendations!


How much do lessons cost?

$120/month for weekly 30 minute private lessons, with a one-time $25 registration fee. Longer lessons are available upon request, contact us at for more information on extended lessons.
