THE INSTRUCTORS AT THE WILL RIPLEY GUITAR SCHOOL TEACH YOU HOW TO BE LOUD AND PROUD, TO TRUST YOUR TALENT, THE MUSIC AND YOURSELF.
No matter who you are, no matter what level you’re at, you’re going to learn the songs and styles you want to learn. Playing guitar and having the ability to create music is the most fun, fulfilling and enjoyable thing to do in the whole, wide world! As an extra added bonus, your “cool status” goes through the roof. You’re able to connect with and entertain everyone in your life like you never thought was possible.
Ripley’s first guitar teacher almost turned him off playing for good. Learning guitar should never be boring or frustrating! Ripley’s own teaching method begins with a list of your top 10 favorite songs – songs that inspire you and excite your interest in guitar. We dive into this list right away to teach you the skills, the chords, the techniques and the magic. With weekly guitar lessons, we will meet your guitar goals as soon as possible.
Every student of the Will Ripley Guitar School is eligible to perform at the Ripley Rock Recital, which happens four times a year at a live music venue in the city. The lessons leading up to these recitals are structured to ensure you’re ready to perform in this professional format. Nothing gets your guitar playing in shape like performing with a live band featuring a professional drummer, bass player and singer. They are there to support and showcase your progress. The audience is made up of other students, family and friends.
Make Music Together: The Will Ripley Guitar School offers group lessons that are upbeat and focused. Team efforts develop naturally as you encourage each other to become stronger guitar players. A supportive musical environment emerges when you take lessons with someone like your best friend, your son or daughter, your parents, or your significant other.
The Will Ripley Guitar School gives back: Will Ripley believes that no child should be denied quality guitar lessons based on low financial means. Please contact us to learn more about group lessons for kids who want to rock out!
