Guitar Classes

Ages 8–18
  • Guitar Roots: Building Core Skills

    Are you new to the Guitar? Do you have a little bit of playing experience and are still building core foundational skills; like learning the string names and numbers, how to tune with an electronic tuner, and the musical note names and rhythms? In this class, you will learn some sweet, simple single string melodies and riffs, how to read and play a song using tablature, how to read a chord grid, and to learn a handful of chords so you can strum some of your favorite songs. Students can expect to spend, on average, up to four terms in a Roots level class before moving on to the Rockers level. 

    Prerequisite: 8 years and up

    • Ages
      8 - 18
    • Fees (Per 10-week Term)
      $175
  • Guitar Rockers: Mastering Core Skills

    Have you been playing the guitar for a bit and can play a few simple songs and chords? Do you know how to tune, how to read tablature, and can play in rhythm with other guitarists?   Do you regularly use more than one finger on the neck of the guitar? This class will help you master the foundational skills you learned in Guitar Roots. We’ll smooth out the transitions while strumming chords, learn about the pentatonic and major scales, begin working on bar chords, read chord charts, learn position based riffs, and introduce the musical staff and standard notation. Students can expect, on average, to spend several terms at the Rockers level, often a full year as they grow and develop their musical strength and confidence.

    Prerequisite: Demonstrate Guitar Roots Benchmarks and/or Instructor Recommendation

    • Ages
      8 - 18

    Have you been playing the guitar for a bit and can play a few simple songs and chords? Do you know how to tune, how to read tablature, and can play in rhythm with other guitarists?   Do you regularly use more than one finger on the neck of the guitar?
