The VMS Advantage: 7 Reasons to Take Guitar Lessons With Us:

Guitar lessons at VMS focus on everything from music fundamentals to how to take care of your guitar. 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.

At VMS we don’t just teach lessons. We offer every student the opportunity to explore.

Exploration can help develop a broader perspective and better musicianship. Try different instruments (a great second instrument for guitar students is ukulele or piano) or play in one of our bands or combos. Our teachers work together in teams and will collectively advise you on your discovery path.

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.

Parents of kids taking guitar lessons may log in to the VMS student portal to track assignments and teacher notes for every lesson.

Take what you learn in your guitar lessons and let the world hear your talent!  Perform in a showcase, record in our state-of-the-art studio, or play guitar in a band or a performance group – All at VMS! Extend your learning in various ways as you grow into the guitarist you have envisioned.

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

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

FAQ for Guitar Lessons

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

For in-person guitar lessons, masks are no longer required but are always honored. We also have them on hand, so if you want one, ask! If you prefer for your convenience, all lessons are available online. In addition, the COVID-certified iWave air scrubber is installed in our central air systems throughout the building, as well as many in-room air purifiers are also installed for sparkling, healthy, clean air!

For the first lesson, you or your child can use one of ours, and your teacher will advise you on how to buy the right guitar for you and your lessons.

All lessons are offered with extreme flexibility to suit various scheduling needs. Click here for VMS Lesson Pricing options.
