Private Guitar Lessons for Adults

Horizon School of Music is located in the heart of Vancouver, BC, offering easy access to transit and gritty views of the cityscape. It’s a safe space with a warm vibe and plenty of natural light designed to inspire musicians of all levels. But if you prefer learning guitar from the comfort of your own home or if your current location/schedule doesn’t permit in-studio lessons, we offer remote tutorials via video chat platforms. Whatever setting works best for you, works best for us.

Learn with the Masters

Our team of highly skilled instructors are widely considered the very best axmen in the city, and they are just as passionate about teaching guitar as they are about playing guitar. Backed by years of stage, studio and classroom experience, our guitar gurus use proven instructional strategies and a positive approach that helps students make continuous progress and realize their full potential. Come meet your new six-string sensei today and get inspired!

Schedule at Your Convenience

At Horizon, our goal is to make learning guitar accessible to everyone, regardless of how busy they are with work, family and other commitments. That’s why we offer a flexible, stress-free scheduling platform that allows students to confirm, cancel and reschedule lessons as they see fit. No commitment, no contract, no getting locked into the same allotted time week in, week out – just the freedom and joy that comes from learning the language of music on your own timeline.

Customize to Meet Your Goals

To ensure every student gets the support and instruction they need for his/her particular skillset, Horizon offers complimentary consultations. Our instructors are experts at tailoring their teaching techniques to help individuals take their playing to the next level, wherever that may be. So, whether you’re an experienced riff maestro with a touch of writer’s block or a full-on newbie who simply wants to learn how to strum a few campfire ditties, we got you covered!

Be it classical, acoustic or electric, the best place to learn any type of guitar is at Horizon School of Music. We specialize in all genres – from free jazz to heavy metal to coffeehouse pop to worldbeat, blues, country, rock and all points in between. Our well-versed instructors have the expertise to guide students looking to concentrate on any specific area of music. And for those students wanting a taste of several musical styles, our teachers are well-equipped for that too.

Kris started as a guitar teacher and ended up a friend. I couldn't have learned guitar from a better person. His enthusiasm, never mind unbelievable talent make guitar learning a joy..

Paul Newton

Our kids are hard to please- but the style and attitude of the group is so unique and engaging that our kids ask to go back. It’s a pleasure to watch them enjoy music and have fun with it while they learn. We highly recommend this school.

I have the great fortune of being taught by Kris.. and catapulted me into a whole new level with no limit in sight! I have taken lessons from other teachers there as well and they are all phenomenal.
