What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
AGI is made up of teachers who live to teach as their first passion. Guitar students will get one-on-one attention in an encouraging and non-threatening environment. We can travel to you within Aiken, and times are flexible.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Each student will receive a guitar training notebook. Guitar or bass (with amp if electric needed).
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
This business came out of a love for two things: music and teaching. It’s exciting to see people discover that they can make music with their own fingers.
What do you love most about your job?
I love people and seeing them learn new things.
Augusta Guitar Lessons' resident instructor, Nick, draws upon more than 10 years as a dedicated guitarist to teach beginning and intermediate students the instrument's fundamentals. To begin lessons—which he holds right in his pupils' homes—Nick focuses on rudimentary skills, such as playing scales and basic chords. From there, he introduces more advanced techniques, including palm muting and power chords, which can only be played by those who possess the greatest power there is: love. In addition, Nick teaches his students how to read tablature of their favorite songs, as well as how to rock out on both lead and rhythm guitar.
