Guitar Lessons

Stimulate Your Brain

You open the closet door and out spills a world of clutter. Grab a broom or tennis racket and slip into a rock star daydream. You purse your lips, bob your head and play air guitar like you own the world.


The guitar represents freedom, independence and confidence. Realize your potential. You can learn how to play guitar today. 

The philosophy for taking guitar lessons at Naperville Music is simple and effective. Learn what you want to know to have fun and play the songs and music you enjoy. 


Learn what you need to know to become the knowledgeable, well rounded, creative and self-reliant musician you desire to be. 


This balanced approach to the immediate enjoyment of the instrument while also working towards building a strong musical foundation for the future is ultimately the most satisfying and rewarding approach to learning the guitar. 

Guitar Lessons

What You WANT to Learn


The first part of guitar lessons is providing students with what they want to know. This is obviously decided by the student and allows the student to determine what they would like to learn for a portion of their lesson. Some of the options that students usually choose to learn to include songs from their favorite artists, the main riff or lick from a song they are currently listening to, a style of music that interests them, a certain guitar technique, or an aspect of music theory that intrigues them. Most students choose to learn songs.


What You NEED To Learn


The second part of guitar lessons is providing students with what they need. We believe all students should know certain elements of music to become skilled, knowledgeable and, ultimately, creative musicians.  These elements would include basic chords, common rhythm guitar techniques, chord progressions, scales in the most commonly used major and minor keys and a practical hands-on theoretical understanding of how these chords and scales function together so as to help the student play the music they enjoy listening to and to create their own music. 

Understand Music


Create Your Own Music,Play By Ear, Play Lead Guitar (In the Right Key, With the Right Scales) Though there are many other elements we believe to be important and are included in our guitar lessons, the above-mentioned knowledge and skills are the ones that we feel are indispensable for every student. 

TWO Exciting Ways To Take Guitar Lessons- The Traditional Track and The Performance Track 


Here at Naperville Music, our philosophy of teaching guitar lessons is two-fold: provide students with what they want to know and provide students with what they need to know.  Guitar lessons are structured a bit different than other instruments, and you have the option of two different learning tracks. Talking with one of our enrollment counselors will allow us to discuss your specific goals. We can also explain the differences between the two tracks in more detail. The traditional track and the performance tracks will cover all the 4 essentials mentioned above, but approach the material in a different manner. 

Naperville Music is one of the largest private guitar lesson studio serving Naperville, Wheaton, Aurora, Lisle, Plainfield and other surrounding towns. We have been committed to music education, and guitar lessons were one of our first services when we opened in 1974.  Our guitar lesson studios and waiting areas are in our newly expanded and completely remodeled Educational Annex. 

Our Teachers


We have learned that the teacher's ability to motivate a student is critical to the success of the student.
