Northville Guitar Lessons

Emily Maxwell is the owner of Northville Guitar Lessons, Michigan’s only all guitar music academy. Northville Guitar Lessons has been open 9 years and has helped hundreds of people achieve their dreams. Being able to help people figure out their goals, meet their goals, and provide a safe and fun environment where they can learn guitar the right way so they can express themselves musically, is what we’re all about. We love people and we love guitar!


There are many things that make Northville Guitar Lessons the best place you can choose if you’re wanting to improve your skills or start from scratch. First and foremost, we are literally the only school in ALL of Michigan who is actually trained and certified in how to teach guitar. Music degrees are not enough to be an effective school, you must be trained in HOW to teach as well. We all know more math than an 8 yr old, but that certainly doesn’t qualify us to teach 2nd grade. How to “teach guitar” verses how to just “play guitar” is what makes us great! We also realize that every individual has a unique or different goal when it comes to learning guitar, wether it’s for a fun hobby, to play at open mic nights, to jam with friends, or to play professionally, so we make sure we have an actual plan in place for every person, and we closely track their progress to ensure that we are helping to meet their goals and that they are always moving forward.

We make sure that you are not only learning the correct items in the correct order, but we help you to enjoy the process the entire way. We are excellent at providing the appropriate amount of content while insuring that you are never overwhelmed… we give you plenty of time to train on the subject being taught, and not bombard you with information overload. We will never “wing” your lessons, we always have a plan for you! We even offer a FREE trial lesson for you to come and check us out! Throughout each year, Emily undergoes constant training with a specialized mentor in guitar businesses, investing literally thousands of hours of her own time learning how to provide the best value possible to her clients, learning how to teach guitar in the quickest and most efficient way possible (because who wants to learn an instrument if it’s going to take forever?), and learning how to help others overcome their frustrations/obstacles so they can enjoy the journey they’re on.


We truly care about every person that walks through our doors; we are more than music, we are a family that helps inspire, encourage, and uplift one another! *In her free time, Emily enjoys spending time with her husband James, stepson Matthew, and her 2 rescue dogs Lacy and Laila. She also enjoys working out at Applied Fitness SolutionsPlymouth daily, and singing at church on Sundays.
