Guitar & Ukulele Lessons for Kids and Adults 

Are you looking for guitar lessons in a clean, safe environment with university trained instructors?

Then The Ballard and Shoreline Academies are for you. And the best part is that you can register at any time of the year! Our professional facilities have sound dampened rooms with windows in every door. All of our instructors are university trained and have undergone a criminal background check for your piece of mind. And we always have a front desk person to assist you. In addition, our academy is free from the distractions present in home lessons and lessons offered in the back of noisy music stores.


The Ballard and Shoreline Academy offers guitar lessons for acoustic, electric and bass guitar.  Most of our guitar teachers also teach Ukulele, which shares most chord and scale shapes with the guitar. We have an excellent guitar teaching staff and teach guitar lessons in everything from rock to jazz, classical to pop, Spanish to chording.  Many of our teachers actively perform on guitar in local seattle bands.  Our guitar teachers have college or university music degrees so they know the proper theory and technique no matter if a student is interested in metal or classical.  Guitar lessons at the Ballard Academy are enhanced by the opportunity of learning how to jam with other musicians in a rock band setting or how to perform solo in one of our recitals.  No matter what type of guitar lessons you are interested in, we have the right teacher to help you.  Typically a student would be 6 before starting guitar lessons, due to their hand size, but some younger students start with a junior sized guitar.
