My husband and I try to encourage our children to find extracurricular activities they have a passion for. Growing up I took piano and voice lessons but had to travel a distance to do so. Thankfully we have a Guitar Center nearby so musical instruments and education are right at our fingertips whenever we wish.
Music education was something that enriched my life in many ways. I learned to sing in different languages and express my emotions through music. I also learned to love different genres such as opera, jazz
Two years ago my daughter chose to start playing the cello in the orchestra at school. She loved the look and sound of the cello and the beautiful music it makes.
Earlier this year she started taking private lessons. I have seen a huge difference in her confidence and self-expression since starting the cello. I love seeing how transforming music can be. It is especially wonderful to see her improve little by little.
Music education is an extremely important foundation for social, cultural and academic success. While looking around at local music stores I found Guitar Center. Guitar Center is one of the largest independent music educators in the U.S.
I was so excited to visit my local Guitar Center in Fairfax, VA to learn more about what they offer.
Do you know that Guitar Center offers lessons in guitar, drums and more?
Learning that my local Guitar Center offers lessons in guitar, drums, bass, keyboards, vocals, band and orchestra, recording software and more, was honestly a shock.
I had no idea that Guitar Center offered instruction, in fact, I drove by the store so many times thinking it was just a music store and nothing more.
What a nice surprise to learn that Guitar Center offers not only music lessons but also repairs instruments as well.
