UpFront Guitars Music Lesson Program
“Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.”  – Plato

  1. All lessons are private and provided at the UpFront Guitars studio location at 2 South Maple Street #2, Bellingham, MA. 

  2. First lesson for any student is $45 for 45 minutes. Subsequent ½ or full hour lessons may be purchased in packs of 3 sessions. Rates may vary among instructors and will be communicated to prospective students before scheduling. 

  3. Students pay for and schedule lessons through UpFront Guitars staff directly.

  4. Non-vaccinated students and instructors will wear masks. 

Here’s how it works …

  1. Student completes a survey (online or in person), and UpFront Guitars establishes instructor availability and best match. 

  2. UpFront Guitars sets date/time for the first lesson with both student and instructor and collects payment for the first lesson from the student. 

  3. Following the first lesson, the student may book subsequent lessons by calling or texting UpFront Guitars at 508-657-1817 or emailing

  4. Instrument Rental, if required by the student, will be added as a monthly charge. A separate rental agreement will be provided.

  5. UpFront Guitars may solicit private feedback from both student and instructor to ensure continued satisfaction with the lesson program.
