Guitar/Bass Lessons

MUSIC ROYALE GUITAR/BASS LESSONS

Music Royale offers guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin and banjo lessons for beginner, intermediate and advanced musicians. We provide private, one on one classes for most styles of music including rock, blues, jazz, classical, bluegrass and country. Whether you are an adult, a child, a complete beginner, a serious musician or someone just looking to develop a fun hobby, we can help you. At Music Royale, our lessons are customized to help achieve personal musical goals. We believe that anyone with a passion for music should have an opportunity to play, including students with physical disabilities or special needs. Every student is unique and your lessons should be too. We are located in Powell, close to Dublin, Worthington, Lewis Center and Delaware Ohio

If you have had lessons in the past or have tried online videos and you still are not reaching your musical goals, we have a teacher for you. All of our instructors are professional musicians with experience as performers, in the studio and in the lesson room. We offer many performance opportunities for students, including recitals, open mic nights and our Rock School program. Music Royale understands that life happens outside of music, which is why lessons are scheduled from month to month. Our rates are very competitive and there are no long term contracts to sign, so, if something comes up, you are not obligated to continue. We will always welcome back any student who wants to get started again. Since opening in 2002, we at Music Royale have taught thousands of musicians. Many of our former students have gone on to music school, perform in bands, work in recording studios and become professional musicians themselves.

Music Royale is an independent music store owned and operated by local, professional musicians. We are located in Powell, Ohio at the intersection of Sawmill Parkway and Powell Road, just minutes from Columbus, Worthington, Dublin and Delaware. We are easy to find and have plenty of parking. Please check out the bios and videos of our guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin and banjo instructors below.
