From reading tablature to molding axe-wielding masters, Amarillo Guitar Lessons improves the play of aspiring guitarists of all ages and experience levels. With a music education degree from West Texas A&M University, primary instructor Tim McGaughy has been teaching since the late 1970s and has played guitar in local bluegrass bands and the Amarillo Symphony. With an individual evaluation to set a starting point, McGaughy can tutor musical neophytes and retired rockers in virtually any style, including bluegrass, folk/traditional, classical, jazz, and rock. During half-hour classes, six-stringers will learn how to tune the instrument and read musical notation, as well as how to avoid bad habits such as holding the guitar incorrectly or strumming with drumsticks. String-picking students should bring their own guitars and schedule lessons within four to six weeks of their first appointment.
