You’ll be introduced to chords, simple strums, and tuning in a fun, laid-back and supportive environment. Learn about the instrument, basic music theory, and elements of rhythm and harmony.

Our guitar program is designed for every level player. Whether a complete beginner, self-taught, or advanced, we will help you improve your musicianship. The foundation of our program are the GUITAR 1, 2, and 3 classes. As you move through these classes you’ll progressively add more chords and technique. You can apply those skills in our GUITAR: SONG REPERTOIRE 1, 2, and 3. With each you’ll add songs to your song bag, build artistry and refine your performance skills.

  • We use the same Songbook in all three levels of the classes, and we use it extensively.
