Music is humanity's universal language, narrowly beating out such close contenders as Esperanto, The Simpsons references, and yodeled profanity. Learn how to rhythmically communicate across cultures with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get four private lessons for the guitar, bass, mandolin, ukulele, or banjo at The Guitar Store (a $120 value).
James Schultz, owner of The Guitar Store, issues a font of melodic knowledge to budding guitar gods and other aspiring stringed-instrument deities and presides over a team of talented instructors. After selecting their instrument of choice and deciding upon a date for their weekly lessons, learners embark upon the path to musical wisdom. During the course of four 30-minute lessons, teachers ease pupils into picking fundamentals before detailing the proper techniques for dulcetly strumming, playing chords, and dramatically smashing guitars into smaller guitars. Students can dust off disused axes, giving them the attention they've always deserved, or borrow one of the store's loaner instruments during their lessons.
The Guitar Store
The sounds of squealing electric guitars mingle with the delicate plucking of ukuleles and booming basses inside The Guitar Store, a music-lover’s haven nestled in Greenwood. Wall-mounted guitar holders display an exclusive selection of handcrafted G&L guitars and basses alongside a rotating inventory of vintage instruments. In addition to selling and repairing instruments, The Guitar Store’s staff includes a team of skilled instructors, from bands such as PRS, Harvey Danger and Queensryche, who teach burgeoning musicians the art of rock during flexibly scheduled music lessons and vision quests.

“Justin is a great instructor, and all of the staff were very nice and helpful. And when I decided I wanted to buy a guitar from them, they threw in a couple of freebies simply because they're awesome people. I'd highly recommend them to anyone shopping around for lessons and/or quality guitars.”
