Private Guitar Lessons

at UNLV in Fall 2014


UNLV graduate Ted Sablay is the touring guitarist for the Killers, the Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling recording artists from Las Vegas, Nevada. After completing his second world tour with the band, Sablay is returning to UNLV this fall to offer private guitar lessons at the School of Music. All UNLV students regardless of skill level are welcome to enroll. This weekly Guitar for Non-majors class – offered both a one-credit, half-hour lesson (MUSA 158-1003 or as a two-credit, full-hour lesson (MUSA 158-1004) – focuses on helping students acquire the skill set they need to play the music that interests them. Emphasis is usually placed on sight-reading, melody, chords, flat-picking, finger-picking and song forms. Depending on the student, lessons can be expanded to cover creative strategies for songwriting and instruction on Mac-based recording software such as Logic and GarageBand.
