Merewether Guitar Studio

GUITAR LESSONS

At MGS we will teach you how to play the guitar from the basics! You will be given the musical knowledge, correct guitar techniques and fundamental skills to be able to pursue learning the instrument. Motivation is a very important element of success for young people to play the guitar, so we teach popular pop and rock songs to children & teenagers in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere.
We teach all styles, levels & ages on acoustic (steel string), classical (nylon string) and electric guitars. Students can expect to learn chords, famous riffs, popular songs, melodies, TAB, arpeggio picking, fingerpicking, music notation, aural training and music theory.

BASS LESSONS

At MGS, We know the important role a bass guitarist plays in the band! You create the foundation and beats of the music, along with the drummer. Bass guitars have much thicker strings, longer necks and fewer strings (normally four).
For bass guitar lessons, you will learn proper techniques, TAB, music notation, chords, riffs, arpeggios and how to create your own basslines. We also teach primary students who are playing the bass guitar in the school band program. Let us develop your own style of playing the bass guitar.

UKULELE LESSONS

Ukulele has recently gained in popularity and it is easy to see why! It is a great simple instrument that sounds awesome in groups. Ukulele is an affordable and child-friendly instrument! It's a great introduction to the experience of playing a musical instrument for all ages. We recommend starting on ukulele lessons for young students between the ages of 5-7. The chording technique is much easier and less physically demanding than guitar, also it's smaller and easier to hold.
