Lessons for Teens

Guitar Lessons Schenectady

We don’t just teach teens how to play. It is so much more that that.

We set a foundation for learning that helps them start to recognize roadblocks as opportunities, not obstacles.

We have watched our teen students start to recognize that they can overcome challenges, and hear for themselves what is coming to life. This approach begins to develop neural pathways in the brain to achieve and replicate an attitude and aptitude for success.

Warren Music Academy’ highly-trained teachers are experts when it comes to inspiring teens to learn to play their instrument like a pro, whether it be in Guitar, Bass, Piano, Voice, Drums, Songwriting, or Ukulele. Our proven formula for learning effectively and quickly starts with private, one-on-one lessons (as well as optional group lessons that are offered) in a safe and friendly environment. Teens are also encouraged to come play at our Rock Camps that are held throughout the year.

Lessons For All Backgrounds and Experiences

From beginners to pro, we have taught them all. With a reputation of being top-notch music educators, we know when to act as a teachers, coach, and mentor to our students.

Styles we teach include: Rock, Blues, Acoustic, Country, Pop, Indie, Alternative, Funk, Metal, and Jazz. Songwriting and performance are also options we offer, and have a track record of success with.


Lessons are available for the following instruments:

  • Guitar
  • Bass
  • Voice
  • Piano

Whether you want to learn to play an instrument for your own pleasure, or have the positive experience that comes from playing in a band, Warren Music Academy is the place for you. Our teen lesson program is inspiring and fun, and includes private lessons for teenagers that will have them playing and performing the songs they love with confidence.

Lessons for Beginners

Our highly-regarded professional teachers instruct beginners using a method that has inspired students of all ages. Along with learning the fundamentals of your instrument, you will quickly be able to begin your first song and progress steadily as you gain the skills needed to play (and even create songs, if desired). We are known for helping teens build confidence and use music to reduce anxiety and promote positive social skills.

“ I really can’t believe how much my life has changed. I learned guitar and bass and actually played with other kids and I never thought I would be able to do that. I have felt a shift in me that feels more confident and it is all because of how you guys make me feel when I am learning”

Intermediate to Advanced Lessons

Our intermediate and advanced lessons are tailored to build on the skills that students have developed through their previous lessons. We have helped students take their existing skills to levels beyond their expectations. We have given lessons to other known instructors in the Schenectady, Niskayuna and surrounding capital district area.
