Alicia Brooks Says:
My 13 year old daughter is learning to play guitar at Thrive, and she completely fell in love with it after the first lesson! We just love that the instructors are so friendly and accommodating.
Katy Says:
We have been visiting Thrive since it opened and have had nothing but wonderful experiences. From kids bands, to group lessons, to private lessons, we have done it all! The new All-Access group program is great and gives my kids the opportunity to try out several different instruments.
Susie Says:
My 10 year old son recently participated in the week long Intro to Rock Band summer camp. This class let him try different instruments and find a love of guitar…he thought it would be the drums before it started! The facility setup is perfect for the different types of classes offered. We felt so welcomed and taken care of each day!

Group Guitar Lessons

Some students find a one-to-one lesson environment too intense. Group lessons take the pressure away while still providing some individual attention.

Many students learn better within peer-learning contexts, especially while they are beginner/intermediate students, and there is more of a sense of accountability and healthy competition when it comes to practicing between lessons.

Our group lessons are taught in small groups of 3-5 students and include a combination of instruction and independent practice, which allows each child to progress at their own pace. Together with fellow students, your child can learn to play the guitar within a fun and supportive atmosphere!

Why Choose Group Guitar Lessons?

  • Learn multiple instruments, try a new instrument, make up a missed class, or take multiple classes on the same instrument to progress faster
  • Easy to schedule
  • Customizable to fit your needs
  • Flexible to fit your schedule

Add a band class or private lessons to take your experience to the next level!

Private Guitar Lessons

Private lessons are perfect for either the student who is ready to take their guitar skills to the next level or the student who just works better in a one-to-one setting.

Private instruction provides the most attentive learning experience that is tailored to each student’s individual needs and skill levels, and it is most beneficial for intermediate and advanced students.

The one-to-one environment allows students to progress at their own pace, taking as much or as little time as desired with the guidance of a skilled teacher. In private lessons, your child’s teacher will help them foster a love for guitar and reach their full potential!
