West Colfax Academy is the number one guitar lessons program in Lakewood, Littleton, Wheat Ridge, Evergreen, Arvada, and other surrounding communities in West Denver!



(AGES FIVE AND UP) Our guitar instructors teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical styles on both electric and acoustic guitars. Beginners work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory, and ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song. We employ a variety of guitar method books based on student needs and preferences and encourage students to bring smartphones or CDs to their lessons to learn their favorite tunes.  

What styles of guitar do you teach?

All styles, rock, pop, jazz, and blues to metal, country and classical guitar- electric or acoustic.

What's the #1 reason to study guitar at the Academy?

We work with you to craft a lesson plan that fits your individual needs and the student's favorite type of music. Whether you're playing in local bands, a seven-year-old taking their first lesson, or a fifty-year-old returning to the guitar after many years, we’ll set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.

What will I learn from guitar lessons at the Academy?

Do I need to purchase a guitar to learn the instrument?
The Academy offers acoustic and electric guitars for student lessons (for your convenience, students can use one of ours at their first lesson). But to practice at home, you will need a guitar. We offer a variety of instruments appropriate for beginners, starting at just $89.00.
