VTMA is more than a music factory for guitar lessons, we’re an immersive, one-of-a-kind school that teaches you how to find your true tone and style. Learning guitar is more than just learning how to recreate the notes and chords of your favorite songs. When you learn a song, chord, solo or riff at VTMA, our instructors show you both the how and the why. Music theory, technique, rhythm and tone are just a few of the elements that make a VTMA guitarist sound like a real pro who was born to play the guitar.
