About the Studio
Charleston Classical Guitar was founded in 2016 as the private teaching studio of Chadwick Becks. Chadwick taught for 13 years prior to relocating with his family from Pittsburgh, PA. It serves the Greater Charleston area and the world through private lessons and classes taught both in-person and via streaming video.
Students range from around 7 years of age to 90. Though the studio may specialize in classical guitar, it students are not limited to only studying classical. Everything from pop, jazz, rock, and blues are taught in these walls. As a matter of fact, a former student and his hardcore punk band ( Code Orange) have just been nominated for a Grammy.
It is a foundational principle to allow each student the freedom to develop the sound they are most interested in learning. There are fundamentals to be learned, but the creative spirit should never be neglected.
Lessons are scheduled on a weekly basis at the same time. When scheduling lessons, it is important to realize that you are requesting a specific time that could be otherwise filled by another student. Making up a lesson is usually available during the same week with prior arrangement. Otherwise, the lesson is forfeited. If the teacher is absent, then the fee will be added/deducted from the next month's lesson tuition.
The following prices are for a full month of lessons. Depending on the length of the month, this could be four or five lessons. For more information on the studio policies, please see the policy page.
- 30 minute lesson: $120/month
- 45 minute lesson: $180/month
- 60 minute lesson: $240/month
