IN-HOME GUITAR LESSONS
Up Tempo tailors guitar lessons in the Sioux Falls area to fit a student’s skill level and taste in music. Our skilled instructors start with basic chords and song structure to give new students early success. Kids as young as six years old can start guitar in the Up-Tempo Tour program where they learn on a specialized three-string guitar, specifically designed to fit them. As students progress, they learn scales, notation, and music theory all through the songs they learn. Up Tempo also offers bass guitar lessons! The bass is an essential instrument in any band. It is responsible for the low frequencies and plays a large part in keeping a steady rhythm. Students starting on bass will learn basic notes progressions, and how they fit with songs. Then students can expand on walking basslines, rhythms, reading notation, and creating bass fills.
Our advanced students can go on to dive into specific genres, like rock, country, pop, and even preparation for jazz band at school. Every year guitar students in our Headliner program have the opportunity to form a band with other students and perform at the Up Tempo Student Concert. The concert is the highlight of the year, and guitar students can show off their songs, stage presence, and even guitar solos!
