Acoustic Guitar / Electric Guitar / Banjo / Ukulele Lessons (ages 6-adult)
Guitar, Banjo, and Ukulele Lessons at our Covington, Mandeville and River Ridge schools are available at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Guitar students will learn to read standard as well as "tab" music notation, play melodies, chords, and improvise. Our guitar students at LAAPA are welcome to and encouraged to bring in recordings of their favorite bands and players to learn, study, and transcribe.
All of our guitar instructors teach and perform in many different styles. Guitar lessons are available in rock, pop, funk, r&b, gospel, classical, jazz, christian, and more. Whether you're interested in learning classical guitar technique or are ready to rock out, your guitar lessons at LAAPA will consist of an individual lesson plan specifically tailored to your goals.
Our guitar faculty members are all hand picked by the Academy for their high level of communication and teaching skills as well as for their abilities to inspire and motivate. You'll find many of our guitar faculty members performing locally at regular gigs in various venues and clubs throughout the city of New Orleans and the surrounding metropolitan area.

Private and Small Group Lessons are held for 30, 45, or 60 minutes each week. An additional weekly 45 minute group theory class is also available to all currently enrolled guitar students free of charge.
