Course details

From concert halls to grocery stores, music is all around us. Termed the “universal language,” it transcends cultures and finds a way to move us in a way few other things can. Music is powerful!

This guitar class is designed for beginner to intermediate players, and will help you get a better grasp of the basics of guitar playing and also of music composition. The goal at the end of the course is to provide you with the skills to a) play popular music and b) explore creating music through composition.

Note – you must provide a guitar for the classes. Acoustic or electric is fine; if electric, you need to bring an amp as well.
