Gordon Kreplin’s welcome statement:  Thank you for visiting my music instruction webpage.  I look forward to learning about music and about the guitar together with you! I offer guitar lessons in our beautiful Outer Banks studio location – Ascencion Music Academy – in Kill Devil Hills. All ages and levels of serious music student are welcome.  In my studio, here is what you will learn:

Beginners are introduced to basic skills for the guitar applicable to further development in classical, jazz, folk and pop styles. These include how to tune and hold the guitar, strumming, basic finger styles and reading music. For students 7 years old and above. Younger beginners (under 7) may be accepted after initial assessment of readiness.

Intermediate level students pursue classical instruction, folk tablature reading, strumming, finger picking styles and chord progressions. As well, we study basic music theory for the guitar.

Advanced level students receive comprehensive classical instruction and repertoire is expanded with more advanced study of music theory. For those interested in pursuing music studies at the university level, college preparation is undertaken. Also, basic jazz progressions are covered.
