Preteen to Teens - Private Lessons on Zoom
All Programs

Catherine Bronson - Mom and college professor.

"Our son's been learning through MGA since 2017. Stephen is a phenomenal teacher, by all measures. In addition to being a talented professor of music at Notre Dame. He is most patient, thorough-going and through his expertise helped our son craft his guitar-playing. Highly recommended!​"

A nylon string classic guitar is required. Special sizes available to rent or purchase.

The learning activities are geared for more mature children and teens, but also include ear training, singing and music reading in a step-by-step approach.

An Interactive Program

Each student learns solos, duets and chords in private lessons as they master the fundamentals including ear training, reading and technique. The material is straightforward and user friendly. Each semester advances to a greater level of proficiency and fun!

The Advantage of Semesters

There are three continuing sessions in a year with break weeks between each semester so students may continue their studies year-round.

Our students pay less than other places because they are not paying for the break weeks. Students at other highly rated studios must pay monthly year-round to keep their spot in the teachers schedule.

The break weeks also give students time off from lessons; and for school age children and their parents time to adjust to the Fall and Spring schedules.


See Enrollment Info

These sessions are offered starting later than the regular sessions to accommodate students that enroll after our regular classes begin or in the summer for school aged students.



-Electronic Tuner (battery included) Snark "Super Tight" headstock tuner (available on Amazon at

We have selected the best and easiest to use tuner so that the student can keep the guitar in tune from the beginning.

-Foot Stand (on Amazon at

This is used to elevate the left leg so that the guitar is in the best possible positioning and the student does not have to use the hands to hold the guitar in place. The hands and fingers are freer to play correctly.
