Music Lessons for the Whole Family--From Toddlers to Seniors

We offer the following music lessons at G-Clef Music Academy

GUITAR LESSONS
(for ages 5 and up)

Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical guitar lessons in Tucson, AZ. We teach on electric and acoustic guitar. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their guitar lesson to learn their favorite tunes.

PIANO LESSONS
(for ages 5 and up)

Our piano teachers teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. Whether you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Our piano faculty will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first 6 months. Our piano teachers have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love for the piano with you.

VOICE LESSONS
(for ages five and up)

Our voice teachers primarily focus on popular music. If you have always wanted to be a better rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel or R&B singer, then we have the right voice teachers for you. Voice students spend time each week doing physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more. All voice students set goals with their teacher to work on sounding like their favorite recording artists, or if they prefer, to develop their own unique voice. We not only teach singers, but also local TV and radio personalities who want to enhance their speaking voices. We offer voice lessons in Tucson seven days a week.

VIOLIN LESSONS
(for ages five and up)

Our violin teachers teach a variety of styles from classical violin lessons to pop music. Our teachers will show you how to read, give solid technique and theory, but they’ll also incorporate songs you want to learn into the process. Our violin teachers have great personalities and make learning the violin fun.

DRUM LESSONS
(for ages 6 and up)

We have one of the most professional drum lesson rooms in Tucson, with state of the art sound proofing and two Yamaha drum kits for students to use. Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles. Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort. All drummers bring in their favorite drum parts to learn in their drum lessons and theory is encouraged. We have many drum students who play in local bands be it in rock clubs or their local churches. You do not have to purchase a drum kit to take lessons.
