The Guitar Lab elevates musicians' guitar-playing skills with lessons for players in all stages of the learning process. Lessons cover a wide range of knowledge, from music theory and sight reading to improvisation, with a focus on experimentation. Instructors also put an emphasis on ensemble playing, offering lessons with The Guitar Orchestra, in which up to 12 guitarists participate in workshop-style group lessons.
Childhood choirs sparked a lifelong love of music in accomplished teachers Reggie Jackson and Kevin Johnson. At CTM Studios, they combine their dual passions for song and education during lessons focused on piano, voice, guitar, and violin, as well as various woodwind and brass instruments. Available to students of all skill levels for group and private lessons, Reggie and Kevin help pupils master their instruments by teaching everything from basic scales to advanced soloing technique. Besides instilling the tenants of craft, both instructors strive to make their students confident performers by employing methods less startling than randomly setting off pyrotechnics during lessons.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I provide well-rounded instruction so that from day one my students build a strong foundation in music theory, sight reading, ear training, technique, rhythm, expression, performance, practice, and music appreciation.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
For the first four lessons I provide all lesson materials including sheet music, flash cards, staff paper, etc. All you need is a piano!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I believe learning to play an instrument has a multitude of benefits for the growing mind beyond playing an instrument including developing problem solving skills, attention to detail, fine-motor skills, hand-eye coordination, listening skills, focus, discipline, motivation, and confidence.
What do you love most about your job?
Finding that spark in my students that incites a love for music that encourages them to learn and work hard. Most importantly, my students and I have a lot of fun!
"Learning to play music should be fun" states Bach to Rock's philosophy. "It's called play for a reason." This warm, inviting spirit permeates everywhere students work individually or in groups with seasoned players to improve their skills in guitar, voice, drums, piano, keyboard, and even in turntables. They then put their musicianship to practical use in extended jam sessions, learning how to be expressive and glue their instrument back together after smashing it. Once pupils have progressed to a professional level, they can check out Bach to Rock's professional recording studio, which are open to artists who want to lay down tracks for an album or fine-tune their already-existing songs.
