Lessons in Longmont, Colorado


I’m proud to be a part of the lessons program at Guitars, Etc., Longmont’s oldest (and best) music store.

Guitars, Etc. offers private lessons on piano, guitar, bass, drums, and vocals as well as all brass, woodwinds, and orchestral strings. Currently, over 450 students a week study with the store’s 23 teachers.

As part of our private lessons program, students have a chance to showcase what they’ve learned on stage in the store’s 100 seat venue located on the lower level. Touring artists perform in this same venue, including acts as diverse as Lacuna Coil, Lita Ford, Muriel Anderson, and Pat Bianchi.

At Guitars, etc.’s Rock Camp, “campers” get the hands-on experience needed to play in a band. In each of the week-long sessions, campers form a band and learn several songs together. After five days of Rock Camp Learning Sessions, campers participate in a photo shoot and perform their “Big Rock Show” in a 100 seat venue. Rock Camp offers a great chance to become part of a team and learn how to use gear, play through a professional sound system under real stage lighting, and learn valuable performance techniques and tips from professional musicians.

Each January, Guitars, Etc. holds month-long classes for beginning bass, drums, guitar, and ukulele. These classes, which are free with the purchase of an instrument, give students a fun head start on a lifetime of playing music.

Don’t Wait… Call to set up your lessons today! You could be playing sooner than you think.
