2. Multiple Teaching Program & formats

At SLC Guitar we have many innovative programs for learning guitar that all center around you having fun, getting amazing results, and having confidence in your guitar playing. 

3. Professional environment with a comfortable waiting Room & Free Wi-fi

Instead of lessons in a closet in the back of a music store or dropping your kid off at a strangers house, at SLC Guitar we have a comfortable waiting room where you can hang out while your kid is in his/her lesson, or use our speedy Wi-Fi to get some work done.  We also provide large observation windows on every door so you can watch your child's lessons while you wait.  For adult students you can also get warmed up before your lesson. 

4. World Class Guitar Method

Unfortunately the standard for guitar lessons is either boring method books or disorganized  "custom private lessons." At SLC Guitar we've developed our own unique teaching pedagogy called Multi-Dimensional Guitar Training where we'll systematically build your SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE, and your CREATIVITY. 

5. Flexible Scheduling

With our unique programs we've also built in the convenience of scheduling lessons. This is perfect for adults who's job has irregular hours or for parents who need some flexibility with managing kids's schedules. 

6. Proven Track Record of Excellence since 2010

Whether you're a total beginner without any musical experience or you've been stuck for years we can help you. We've had many great success stories of players of all ages and skill levels. We are so proud of our students and are happy they chose SLC Guitar to help them in their guitar journey. Visit our reviews page to see what our students are saying and watch them play!

7. Opportunities to earn FREE Guitar Lessons & Gear! 

At SLC Guitar we like to find fun ways to reward our students who are putting in the effort and working hard.  We also know that our guitar parents want their kids to develop critical life skills in their youth that will serve them as they grow up. Why not find fun simple ways to instill these life skills and positive mindsets with something THEY want to do?

8. Full Time Instructors 

At SLC Guitar we are full time professional guitar teachers and don't teach "on the side" splitting our time with other professions or even other instruments.  Taking guitar lessons from an expert will save you a lot of time and money. 

9. Most technological advanced Guitar school in Utah

With normal guitar lessons, the teacher the student is left on their own until their next lesson. What happens if they have a question, practice wrong, or forget what to do? Studies show that students only remember 10-15% of their lessons which of course is very bad for learning!
At SLC Guitar we've built a world class online guitar academy that utilizes gamification. When students are home they can log in, practice with the resources, watch tutorial videos, unlock bonus lessons, get points for developing their skills & proficiency, ask questions on the forum, go head to head on the leaderboard and much much more! 

Our online academy is so effective we have students all over the USA 
 getting better results than with their previous private instructor!

11. Killer performance Opportunities

We don't do cute little music recitals. WE ROCK! Bi-annually we put on mini concerts for students to show case their skills for friends & family, gain experience playing in front of others, play LOUD, and look, feel, and sound like rockstars. 

I know it's probably not the outcome you're looking for but I told my husband I was tearing up at the concert over kids I didn't even know. Seeing the nerves on their faces and then just crushing their songs" - Jen (parent of a student)
