NOLA Guitar Lessons & More isn't your average music school. We're set apart not only by passion for our students and the range of instruments we teach, but by personalized lessons plans built around the music tastes of our students, and perhaps most notably through our affordable rates!
Think for a second about the average piano lesson. If you’re a parent looking for your child’s music teacher or are returning to an instrument after decades, you might’ve taken this lesson. I once had a stuffy senior of a piano teacher, insisting on the efficacy of the method book she’d been raising students on since the 70s. There’s a good chance you’ve seen this classic tome.
It’s a disastrous combination of cardboard, paper and staples, filled with public domain nursery rhyme tunes and Christmas carols. If you’ve ever interacted with a child, you could probably assume these method books don’t grab their attention all that well. I can tell you I wasn’t enthralled with them as a six-year-old.
Now I want you to think about why students want to learn music in the first place. They could've been inspired to pick up guitar by anything from a TV character to a street performer having a blast on Royal. These are not people who are playing "Hot Cross Buns."
What parents and music students seldom realize is that there are much more fun and engaging ways to get started making music. Many of the pop and rock songs that kids hear on the radio are well within the range of songs that can be picked up by kids in their first lessons. We’ve started students off with songs by Pink!, Johnny Cash, Halsey, and other songwriters that didn’t have mutton chops. I've had kids who'd never touched an instrument pounding out "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by the end of the first session, I've seen seven-year-olds time and time again strumming and singing Disney tunes and Taylor Swift songs after just weeks of lessons. They start loving their instrument very quickly.
