Guitar Lessons in Bossier City

We teach our students to "become musicians, not robots!"

If you’re stuck only reading Tablature or Sheet Music, then you’re limited by whatever tabs you have, or what you have memorized.  But! If you learn how music works as a language, then you can have fun for hours making things your own!

The best of the best. My son has been a student for over a year and has learned so much. Chris is super talented and extremely passionate about helping his students become the best guitar players they can. He finds fun ways to encourage them and keep them engaged. My child enjoys and looks forward to lessons! We have been extremely pleased and recommend Hirsch Guitar Academy every chance we get!!

What a great experience so far. What I wanted out of guitar lessons is not what I have received. It's been a great deal more. I went in wanting to play the basic acoustic guitar. Chris has educated me on the technical aspects of playing which have enhanced my skill tremendously. The group class is better than I thought as it gives you time to practice a new skill that you just learned while Chris is teaching others. Music is therapeutic and so is this class. Chris has great energy and personality! You'll love it!

My mom wanted me to get into guitar. At first I thought that it was just going to be another instrument that I’m gonna be forced to learn and that I’m gonna quit in a couple months. As soon as I meat Chris in person however, I saw that he was different from the rest. He was passionate and very excitable. I could to relate to his spastic attitude which helped a lot. What was different about his teaching style from the rest of the teachers that I had was that he picked songs that guitar players would want to learn and encouraged you to pick your own songs to learn. As I had more lessons with him, I realized how knowledgeable he is when it came to music theory and how he simplified it so well that a even toddler could understand it. I also like the group lessons he uses. It makes it feel like there is less pressure on you personally and gives a sense of relatability to the other players around you. I think Chris Hirsch is the best music teacher I have ever had, so much so that he inspired me to chase a career in music. 11/10, would absolutely recommend.

I’ve played guitar for a few years. I had never taken lessons and I was ready to take my guitar knowledge and playing to the next level. Chris has been the perfect fit for what I wanted and needed to do that. He has expanded and improved everything from my technique, theory, comping and becoming the “Rock Star” I was meant to be. Ha. I’m still trying to get him to do a stage presence series of lessons where he can show us his crazy stage presence. Long story short, he’s not your Grandmaw’s guitar teacher. If you want progressive in your face exciting lessons that will challenge you to learn and improve quickly.......Chris is your guy.

Unbelievable Results! After only a month of lessons, my daughter has learned more from HGA than from all the other individuals we've tried before. Chris has developed a system that has proven results and has kept my daughter growing in her knowledge and ability and most importantly she is loving every lesson!

My son, Michael, LOVES the guitar thanks to Chris Hirsch and his unique way of teaching! My son played songs after 4 lessons that my friends' children did not learn in 8 months!!! The way Chris runs his business and the passion he has for each and every student is phenomenal!!! If you or your child has ever thought about learning to play the guitar, give Chris and his staff a call and I promise you will be blown away by how fast you are playing!!

How will you level up?

Lead Guitar Technique

Ranging from fiery passages from Van Halen to melodic "slow hand" like Eric Clapton, develop your chops and play those amazing solos effortlessly!

"Practical" Music Theory

Instead of learning a bunch of theory "just because," we focus on teaching you the stuff that will actively make a difference in your playing! Imagine knowing how to effortlessly create progressions and solos instead of wasting time on obscure things that 97.3% of guitar players will never need to use.

Rhythm Guitar Technique

Whether it's strumming for campfire acoustic songs, or laying down amazing metal riffs, you gotta be able to hold down the rhythm!

Personal Setlist (Repertoire)

It's important that in addtion to learning lots of techniques, scales, chords, theory, etc that you also spend time playing songs you like. Having fun is important to continuing progress over the long-haul!


One of the most fun and best ways to test your working ability and practical knowledge is to learn and practice the art of improvisation. Whether it's ripping solos or basic melodies, this is a great area to work on to get those creative juices flowing!

Playing with others

At the end of the day, music is kind of boring if it's just you playing to a wall. One of the main areas we dedicate a good bit of time to is being comfortable in group settings!
