When Dru Silver isn't touring America with his band Locusta—a trek the group has made five times—he draws on his more than 10-year career to teach budding guitarists at Guitar Lessons Columbus. He starts slow with kids, not only helping each pupil have fun mastering a favorite song they like, but also preventing them from falling through their acoustic guitar's hole. With older students, whether they're beginners or advanced shredders, he personalizes lessons around each pupil's goals and interests, whether it's notating favorite songs by ear or learning to improvise solos. Those skills come in handy during the other activities Dru curates for his students, including jam sessions, recording sessions, and live concerts.
Musician Matt Steidle wears many hats: composer, performer, and teacher. As the owner of Stylie Studio, he has the chance to exercise all three. As a composer, he creates tunes for commercials or helps others record and stylize their own songs. As a performer, Matt soundtracks everything from weddings to birthday parties with ballads dating as far back as the '60s all the way to today's hits. And as a teacher, he passes on his expertise in guitar, electric bass, piano, and music theory to the next generation of artists.

Piano lessons build a sense of camaraderie between fellow ivory ticklers, and the booming percussion curriculum creates child-size drummers capable of keeping solid 4/4 beats. These three classes welcome beginners aged 8–11 as well as those 12 and older.

The private lessons, which cater to aspiring professionals, combine voice instruction with education about music theory.

Alternatively, basic instrumental lessons in guitar and piano cover basic chord structure as well as sight-reading.
