Jon Kapity Guitar Academy offers music lessons in:

Acoustic, Electric, and Bass Guitar, and Rock Band Classes.



That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.

We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach. 

A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty seven year old taking up guitar for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.

The main reason to choose the Academy as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual. 

If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.


We teach many styles including rock, pop, country, blues, christian contemporary, video gaming music, themes from your favorite tv shows, movies, and more...


Our teachers have have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.


(for ages six and up)

Our guitar teachers teach many styles from rock to pop, blues, metal, country and christian contemporary guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this including our very own in-house designed curriculum Guitar90 and 8 Cycle Guitar Methods.
