10. Rewards Based Referral Program offered to students and their families.

We Make Referrals Easy! We offer $25 in JKGA Bucks to every friend, family member, and acquaintance you refer. When a student you referred signs up, you also get $25 in JKGA Bucks and a $25 gift card of your choice (Amazon, Starbucks, or Fandango...your choice). 

11. Guitar Bucks Program for Students Age 12 and under.

Students age 12 and under receive a weekly Guitar Bucks Tracking Sheet to fill out and turn in at each lesson. Students simply fill in the amount of time they spent practicing on each given day, have a parent or guardian initial it for accountability, and then they receive 3 guitar bucks for every 15 minutes of practice time. Our students may then redeem their guitar bucks for special prizes, kind of like Chuck-E-Cheese. This has been one of our most successful programs at Jon Kapity Guitar Academy. Our students absolutely love it. Even more importantly, our students parents love it! This program was designed to reduce the parental problem of nagging their children to practice at home. This program gives our students, under the age of 12, a natural desire to practice on their own due to the nature of the reward based system. This program has been a knight in shining armor for parents.

12. Rockstar of the Month Program for Students Age 13 and up.

Our students requested a rewards based program for ages 13 and up, and we responded with our "Brand New in 2018" Rockstar of the Month Program. This is a student highlight program to recognize our most outstanding student achievements.

We offer a variety of ways to qualify into the running for this program each month. Qualifying under multiple categories greatly improves the students odds of achieving the "Rockstar of the Month" status. Here are the 4 current ways to qualify into the running:
