Guitar I: Starting Out (no experience required; adults)

This is where it starts. No previous experience necessary. If you’ve ever been curious, or if you’ve always wanted to play, this is the place your musical journey begins. You’ll explore the instrument and discover what makes it so special, and you’ll be making music from your very first lesson. You’ll discover why the guitar holds a unique place in American music of all kinds, from folk to rock to jazz to blues, and join with your mates in starting down the road to mastering the skills that let create your own sounds.


If there is insufficient enrollment in the class, participants will be given the opportunity to receive four 30 minute private lessons in place of the group class.


$30 registration fee for new students applies.
