Acoustic Guitar Lessons

At the Joe Ferrante Music Academy, we have a unique acoustic guitar program that includes lessons from degreed teachers and a stimulating musical environment for all budding acoustic guitarists. Made famous by musicians like Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, our teachers take a modern and innovative approach to acoustic guitar lessons. Our progress reports (STEP Reports), offer techniques that build upon a solid foundation.

The intimate approach of the acoustic guitar can be used from leading a rhythm section to writing and performing original songs, even solo music! Our expert acoustic instructors use Academy STEP reports to track development of important skills like hand positions, interpreting chord charts and beyond!

For singers, the acoustic offers a wonderful accompaniment tool to support their own voice. For the casual musician, let our one-on-one private instructors help you learn that favorite Beatles or Rolling Stones tune. Whether you or your child are looking for an extracurricular activity or studying for a professional career as a musician, our teachers are trained to meet you at your level and take you forward!

My 5 year old son wanted to take piano lessons so we reached out to JF music academy. They were running a special for January plus a free introductory class. Ms Lorraine is our sons teacher and he's really enjoying his sessions. He is enjoying his sessions so I'm hoping he will continue his Interest in learning.

Nicest people in the world! I brought my niece for her first guitar and the teacher was great, along with the young lady who helped us out in the front. My niece is loving the lessons and I couldn't be happier about who amazing they are l, and the level of professionalism.

I started taking guitar lessons with Alex about 2 months ago. It has been fantastic. Everyone at the school is incredibly nice, and it really has a low-key small town community type atmosphere. My lesson is one of the best parts of my week and I look forward to it every time. Most of the students are children, but I'm not. If you think you are too old to start an instrument or to take music lessons, you are incorrect! It's never too late to strike up the band. Give it a try, you will be glad you did.

They're really professional there. I got to take piano lessons while in high school, and although I didn't appreciate it then, it was a great experience. I later took guitar and piano lessons there as an adult, and I was happy with their teachers. The staff was always accommodating. When I have kids, I will definitely be taking them there. The teachers are great!

Online zoom call lessons have been working great. Patient teachers, service oriented front desk staff, charter school payment allowed. This place has been excellent for my 3 children. We took guitar, song writing, mandarin, piano, and tried out a music application type class for our youngest preschool age child.
