Designed for absolute beginners, this class is a great way for kids to try out the guitar in a friendly, supportive group setting! Participants will learn the building blocks of music and note reading, basic right and left-hand technique. By the end of the session, participants will be able to play several beautiful melodies. Participants can continue their learning in September in our Guitar Group Class or in private lessons.

Going on vacation? Not a problem. Pick any 4 classes to attend (or come to all 8)!

Please note: Students will be provided with an instrument for the duration of the class, or if they wish, can use their own guitar (nylon string preferred). Participants do not need previous musical experience or knowledge.
