Music is a form of self-expression. It brings people together and helps you relieve stress, anger, and sadness. If you or your child wants to learn guitar from the best, come to Evergreen Music School for private guitar lessons in Bellingham, WA. We’ll teach you or your child how to play and help you feel all the joy that music can bring.
Learning an instrument is a great way to improve focus, stimulate your mind, and improve your memory. For kids especially, an instrument can improve their lives and shape their minds to accomplish more.
Guitar is accessible to everyone. The instruments themselves are more affordable than other instruments. And basic guitar is easy to learn. Even if you know only a couple of chords, you can play songs, which encourages further practice and learning and instills a sense of accomplishment after only a short time.
When you come to Evergreen Music School, you’ll get only the best instructors for your or your child’s learning. Our instructors focus on one instrument or instrument family, which allows them to become the best in playing and teaching that instrument. We also welcome all ages and abilities, so whether you want to sign up your 5-year-old child or you want to sign yourself up at 66, we’ll be able to teach in the way that works for your needs.
As you learn, our school provides opportunities to showcase your skills and learn from others with our many recitals and activities. This is also a great opportunity for you or your child to invite friends and family and share this new skill with them.
