At Music Maker Workshops, we offer engaging and dynamic guitar, bass and ukulele lessons for teens and adults. These instruments are renowned for bringing people together.

As students embark on their musical journey, they can expect to develop fundamental skills such as scales, chords, and melodies, enabling them to play various simple songs. With guitar lessons, students experience a gradual progression in their playing abilities as they gain proficiency in chords and learn to play multiple musical genres, including rock, blues, metal, country, and even classical on electric and acoustic guitars.

Our goal is to provide a supportive and enjoyable environment where students can cultivate their musical talents and become the life of any gathering.
