More About Music Styles

At Pakachoag, the basis for instruction for most instruments is traditional classical instruction.  Using this classical approach, we can teach skills, techniques and knowledge to provide a firm musical foundation.   You can then readily apply this foundation to other styles of music. 

In addition to traditional classical instruction, we also understand that some students are interested in particular music genres or styles. Guitar, ukulele and voice are three instruments in particular where teachers will often teach using different genres.  The table below outlines styles and genres available by instrument category.

If you have questions, we suggest you begin by submitting a Lesson Inquiry Form.  You can also call us at 508-791-8159.

Please visit our Faculty page for a list of teachers for each instrument. Jazz and Folk instructors are noted within the general faculty listing.
