Guitar Institute of Learning was established in 1999 by Lou DeFusco, a musician from New York. The goal of GIOL is to teach kids, teens, adults, and seniors to guita/pianor and train you on a variety of styles, including rock, jazz, country, blues, folk, alternative, pop, R&B, classical, and more! With the invention of "Skype," we now have the opportunity to give live online lessons nation wide. Although we are based in the Central Valley (Modesto/Turlock area) of California, and can instruct in your home or our studio, we are reaching out to the West Coast, all 50 states, and beyond! All of our teachers are professional, certified, and run through extensive testing and background checks. We make learning to play easy and fun!
GIOL does not just teach you how to play guitar, but how to practice it and how to become a great musician. It can be one thing to play an instrument, but to know how to play with other musicians requires a development of playing with others and applying your knowledge. Which is what guitar institute of learning can help you do.
I have been playing guitar for about 5 years. I studied with Lou De Fusco from GIOL and I recommend them to anyone serious about learning to play all styles. Looking now for a jam partner!
Before I began studying with Clint, I could not even tune a guitar. His engaging lessons and endless patience were essential to my growth as a player and recommended to anybody who wishes to fast-track their learning curve as a musician.
