The VMS Guitar Lesson Advantage

Guitar Lessons at VMS focus on everything from music fundamentals to instrument care. Strengthen your playing technique while you also learn about gear upkeep, amp usage, and choosing the right pedals or strings for the type of music you want to play.

Exploration can help develop a broader perspective and better musicianship. Try different instruments (a great 2nd instrument for guitar students is Ukulele or piano) or play in one of our bands or combos. Our teachers work together as a team and will collectively advise you on your discovery path. At VMS we don’t just teach lessons. We offer every student the opportunity to explore.

VMS guitar instructors are highly skilled players with music degrees and extensive professional performance, touring, and recording experience. A well-rounded teacher can provide a much deeper understanding of each student’s needs. Every student is different, so lesson plans are customized to fit each student’s interest and learning style.

 VMS students and parents may log in to the VMS student portal to track assignments and teacher notes for every lesson. Additionally, younger students may opt to enroll in the VMS Juniors Program. It’s a proven curriculum designed to inspire students to practice more while enhancing their love for music. Using check up tests with leveled prizes, it’s effective, free, and available through any teacher for any lesson.

Take what you learn in your lessons and expand!  Perform in a showcase, record in our state-of-the-art studio, or play in a band or combo – All at VMS! Extend your learning in various ways as you grow into the player you have envisioned. 

Every 6-8 weeks, every student has the option to perform in front of an audience. All students are welcome, and participation is encouraged but always optional.

A wide variety of producers, organizations, event organizers look to us to find talent. Through VMS, find out about auditions, performances, and contests for local, regional, or national events.

When there is desire, it’s time, but if little hands are too small, we recommend starting lessons with a ukulele, then your teacher will transition to guitar when ready.

Lessons are always available online, but for in-person lessons, for now, all teachers and students wear masks and maintain 6 ft or more distances.
