Welcome to the Accent Guitar Studio Website

Accent Guitar Studio teaches all types of guitarRock, Pop, Folk, Jazz, Classical, and Metal.


To supplement and achieve a basic grounding on how music is played, Terry has written and recorded 5 graded books, called “Conceptual Guitar.”

Each book includes learning scales, then learning how to improvise (write music), note reading and chord rhythm. We combine this with the songs students would like to learn.

There are exams that can be taken at the end of each grade. You will receive an exam report and a certificate. We also have a guitar giveaway prize.


Here are a few recommendations from some current students:

“Thank you for every lesson you taught,
every practice you put up with us,
Inspiring us each time we doubted ourselves,
Believing in us from beginning to end,
And for making us realize if we try,
we can do anything.”

“Thank you for all your patience and hard work teaching E guitar! She has loved her first year with you.”

“Thanks for another great year of guitar lessons for K. We really appreciate all the extras you do!”

“Thank you for everything that you have done for me! You showed me what I can do with my passion and you are helping me to overcome a fear that I haven’t been able to shake off. With your help and guidance you have brought me into your music world, and for that I can’t thank you enough.”

Terry is also a music consultant with Canopy Productions.
