GUITAR LESSONS IN MONROVIA
(AGES 5 AND UP)
Our guitar instructors are kind and friendly, and want to get to know each student and parent on a personal level. By working with our students to build a lesson plan centered around their goals and musical tastes, MONROVIA MUSIC ACADEMY ensures the best experience for our students. Whether you're playing in local bands, a five year old taking their first lesson, or returning to the guitar after several decades, our teachers will share their passion for the craft and work with you towards your own musical aspirations.
Start your child on a journey that will bring them confidence and an incredible creative outlet. Students start their musical journey with us by learning to play the music they already know and love from the world of jazz, rock, funk, and more. Our instructors strive to make each lesson an encouraging and positive experience by incorporating our students’ favorite songs into their lesson plans. It has always been our philosophy that when learning is fun and engaging, students are more likely to excel and enjoy practicing their instrument. Our students and parents LOVE our Level Up Music Achievement program, which structures the learning process in achievable small steps that can be measured from day one. Our students feel more motivated earning stickers, wristbands and certificates!

FREE BAND WORKSHOPS
Throughout the year we offer a free band workshop to all our students called “Tomorrow’s Rockstars”. This unique program aims to give students the experience of playing in a band with their fellow aspiring musicians, a crucial element of their musical education. This workshop has been a complete success with both students and their families. Our students have a blast playing songs they love and building friendships with their bandmates. Most importantly, we see their confidence and motivation grow immensely through this special program. Many of our beginner students participate after only a few months of lessons.
LEVEL UP MUSIC ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM
At Monrovia Music Academy, we use a system of certificates, wristbands, and stickers to track student growth from level 1 to 10, similar to the belts in a martial arts program. This structured, nationally-recognized approach, is free and optional for all our students. Giving students a fun, tangible way to mark their success does wonders to motivate them to practice their instrument and push their limits.
UNLIMITED MAKE-UP LESSONS
Monrovia Music Academy organizes two recitals each year, usually held at the beautiful Boston Court Theatre in Pasadena. Recitals act as a goal for students to work towards as well as a place to showcase their talents for friends and family alike.
BEAUTIFUL FACILITY AND PLENTY OF FREE PARKING
Our state of the art facility includes a comfortable parent’s lounge stocked with free amenities, including Wi-Fi, water, coffee, tea, and magazines. We also have a charging station for your devices, a massage pillow, and coloring books for the little ones. There is plenty of free parking available right in front of our school.

A PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF EXCELLENCE
Trusted by hundreds of families that come to our Pasadena school each week since 2011, we are committed to offering the best possible music education and customer service. Don’t just take our word for it, visit our Google and Yelp pages to see what our students and their parents say about us.
THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES IS OUR TOP PRIORITY
We take multiple steps to ensure the safety of our students and families. Our entire staff and teaching faculty is background checked. All of our teaching rooms have security cameras and video footage is stored for two months. We also have an open door policy, meaning you’re welcome to join your child’s lesson at any time. And all of our rooms have observation windows (with the exception of our drum rooms, due to sound proofing).
Every year we host a free picture day with a professional photographer. This is a service that parents love. Students can bring their instruments to the photo shoot and wear whatever they like. Our adult students are welcome too!
