This class is designed for people of all ages who do not play at all or perhaps play a few chords on their own. You'll be joining a group of like-minded people who love music and want to learn how to play their guitar. Students will learn basics elements of music theory needed to play songs right away. They will leave the group with the ability to play several songs and to learn new songs on their own. The group will be primarily hands on with the instrument. The class will also be a judgement free zone where students can feel comfortable learning.
Each student will need a guitar that is playable. This can be an acoustic (classical or steel string) guitar or an electric. If electric, you must also have a small amplifier and connecting cord. Students should bring a small notepad and pen.
