Class Information

This is a course for beginner guitarists to learn to build their skill through the structured learning of new chords, notes, strumming patterns, and ultimately whole songs. It is possible to accommodate a slight range of skill levels but the goal is for everyone to eventually be on similar pages skill level wise. Students will be exposed to various guitar players via the internet and educational videos. Students will learn different genres of songs. This course focuses mostly on pop and rock, not the classical style of playing guitar.
