SYNERGY's guitar program is specially tailored for each individual student. We have multiple Brampton music studios that offer in-person guitar lessons as well as online guitar lessons that can be taken from anywhere in the world!
Music lessons are available for ages 4+.
'For the Love of It!' means that our goal is to instil and foster a passion for guitar. Our guitar teachers focus on your goals and develop a plan to help you achieve them.
Guitar Lesson Curriculum
Guitar for the Small Fry
SYNERGY guitar teachers preferred curriculum for young beginners is Guitar for the Small Fry. This fun and interactive series guides younger children through age appropriate pieces and technique. Repertoire and etudes paired with our Synergy Method theory book are designed to engage young guitarists.
TEENS & ADULTS
Our Hal Leonard method books are a favourite among our guitar teachers. They provide adult learners tools to start playing more complex pieces faster while also studying how to confidently read music. Theory lessons are incorporated into the practical lesson. Students can also request additional repertoire to learn outside of method books.
SYNERGY guitar teachers are all highly experienced in teaching the RCM curriculum and preparing for exams. Technique, ear training and sight-reading are all included in the guitar lesson. Group theory lessons are available conveniently before or after the practical lesson or online to get started on the co-requisite theory requirements early.
ONLINE OR IN-STUDIO
Our guitar program is one of few in the GTA that includes your theory class back to back with your guitar lesson. Join us in the studio or online for an additional 30 minutes for as low as $8!
Why study theory? Not only is this a compulsory required in the RCM curriculum starting in level 5, it supports your learning and understanding of the music you're playing. We break the music down to help you read notes, rhythm & identify harmony with confidence.
Our private guitar lessons are available Mon-Fri and Saturdays. Beginner to advance level teachers tailor the lesson to each individual guitar student.

If you're looking to learn guitar 'just-for-fun' and prefer a program without exams or recitals, our guitar teachers can work with you to develop a program that will work towards your specific goals. Whether you're looking to study specific classical pieces, rock, jazz & improv, composition or more - we have teachers available with a variety of experience.
Our group guitar lessons are designed for beginner students who are looking to try out the guitar without the commitment at a lower cost. These are 8 week long courses. Guitar classes are one hour each week. Ages 5-13.
