Playing a musical instrument is a skill that will serve you throughout your entire life, like safe cracking, horse punching, and toddler juggling. Add to your resume with today's Groupon: for $40, you get one month of weekly guitar lessons at Guitarworks, valid at your choice of three locations in Calgary and Rocky View (an $84.95 value). All four sessions must meet on the same day and time for four weeks.
With more than 20 years in business, Guitarworks staff services, sells, and instructs in the use of musical axes and accessories. Fine-fingered instructors guide half-hour private lessons in a freestyle curriculum designed to harness each student's interests, learning style, and problem areas. Based on students’ prior experience levels, professional pluckers can teach basic techniques, music theory, note reading, or myriad musical styles from blues to animal call imitations. Guitarworks provides complimentary tablature paper as well as any needed books, available as a separate purchase. Sessions are offered seven days a week during open store hours.
Ever since it first opened its doors in 1987, Guitarworks has done everything in its power to keep musical creativity flowing throughout the Calgary area. The display areas brim with electric, acoustic, and bass guitars crafted by renowned producers, including Fender, Gibson, Martin, and more. Whether visitors are just starting out, upgrading to a new model, or adding to their collection, the staff members can help them find the most suitable instrument. As further proof of Guitarworks's dedication to providing truly personalized attention, the shop's guitar teachers offer lessons for all skill and experience levels, customizing the instruction for each student. Factory-authorized technicians are also on hand to provide all manner of repairs by restringing instruments, performing custom restorations, or tuning temperamental air guitars.
