Besides having some of the finest instructors in town, we are home to Ferner Fine Instruments, the only custom boutique instrument builders in Memphis, TN. Additionally, The Memphis Guitar Spa is a full service repair/restoration/setup & maintenance shop, and the only full service custom finish shop in the Midsouth. We offer 10% off of ALL repair and maintenance work for anyone taking lessons from us, as well as 10% off all strings and accessories!!! We are your one-stop place for all things music!!!
One of the greatest joys we get here is being able to meld the creation of playable art with our own passion for playing! This is reflected in our excitement when working with students who are looking to forward their own ability, no matter what level they are on. Between our builders, repairmen and instructors, we have hundreds of years of experience in all genres of music. You can visit our websites, www.fernerguitars.com and www.memphisguitarspa.com, as well as our facebook page (The Memphis Guitar Spa - Ferner Fine Instruments) for thousands of photos and reviews, and also our Youtube Channel for videos of our instruments at this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLQZz4nxJHnQPWakub_FOPQ?view_as=subscriber. Our instruments have been used by discerning players around the world for over a decade, and have appeared at such events as The Country Music Awards, The Academy Awards, Farm Aid and Rock in Rio to name a few, and additionally appear on many recordings. Our instructors are all professional musicians and we go out of our way to match your style and level of playing with the right instructor. Since we are a small, boutique operation, we go out of our way to provide a very special level of attention to our students.

We first find out the goals each student has, as well as their level of playing ability. We then match them up with an instructor who fits their style or genre. Our instructors are extremely flexible in structuring lessons. Some of our students prefer weekly lessons, some every other week in order to digest and practice what they have learned. We accommodate any preference where this is concerned, and we are open 6 days a week.
All members of our staff are professional teachers, musicians and luthiers who have been making their living in the music industry for decades. Every one of us has recorded material as well as performed live.
Lessons are charged monthly. We charge $125.00 per month which covers four (4) half hour (30 minute) lessons, or two (2) one hour (60 minute) lessons. Students wishing to have one hour (60 minute) lessons every week have a discounted rate of $230 per month.
We work with all types of students. We have students of all ages, and instructors of all ages as well. We have students with no experience who literally are starting out by naming the strings and learning to tune their bass or guitar, all the way up to top shelf players who are looking to add to their chord knowledge, phrasing or theory.
More than anything I tell students to be as descriptive as possible about what their expectations are as well as the style of music they want to learn. The more you let us know what you want, the better we can serve you!
