About this pro

We believe in a simplified approach to music education; that a prepared curriculum, proven methodologies, and a focus on student's musicial goals will engage music students more, and foster a long-term love of music and performance.

On Chord Academy has 8 different music teachers. We all have decades of experience in education, performance, and teaching... and we love passing that education and experience on to our students. We absolutely love to see our students perform for the first time at our regular Student Performances. We love to see our students move on to our regular coffee shop performance series and perform in public. We love to see our students master their instrument and start to identify as a guitarist, vocalist, drummer, or bassist.

Our teachers have music degrees and certificates from the University of Utah, Berklee College of Music, Salt Lake Community College, and others. Our teachers are active performing musicians who perform on the weekends, record and release music, and advance their own musical dreams. Students at On Chord Academy are taught by instructors who absolutely love to play music!


KSL Reviews
"My daughter has been playing for over two years and she has taken lessons from several instructors who provide group or individual lessons and the quality of teaching at On Chord Academy is beyond any other learning experience…The value for the money, the expertise of the instructors and the rapport they have with their students is remarkable. These classes have helped my daughter advance musically beyond what I ever expected and it has also helped her overall confidence and self esteem…Every lesson is completely tailored to her and incorporates her interests and musical tastes. I feel that this is what really sets On Chord Academy apart."

I honestly can’t say enough about this school! I absolutely love it, and am so very impressed with the teachers, and how amazing they are. They love music, and that enthusiasm is passed on to their students. Best thing I could have done for my son! I can’t believe what he can play after 9 short months of taking lessons."

"We signed our daughter up for the introductory lesson and were more than impressed with what she got. She went in with very basic knowledge about the guitar and, after only 90 minutes, left with knowledge of the instrument, the ability to read tablature, an understanding of counts and measures, and was playing simple songs. It was obvious that the instructors here really care about their students!"
