Guitar and Bass Lessons

Guitar lesson in Miami

Join the many who have made the leap from thinking about learning to play guitar to doing it.

We teach students of all ages, levels and interests. We teach all music styles and genres, including rock, metal, jazz and blues.


In addition, we offer many free opportunities to our students to grow musically outside the class and in conjunction with their lessons. Once a week, for example, we invite our students and the public to our free acoustic guitar jams. Our guitar jams are a great chance for our students to learn to play with others and to learn from other guitar players.

We also offer specialized seminars and workshops to let our students really focus on the style they want to play, with the masters in that style. For example, this January, master fingerstyle guitarist Richard Gilewitz returns to The Guitar Nook to teach his popular fingerstyle workshop.
