Open to district residents only. Limit of 12 people, age 16 and up.
This class is for the true beginner. You'll receive an introduction to the fundamental rudiments of general music, guitar music and guitar tablature. Learn to play by practicing finger exercises and note reading. Also covered are the three most common "open" major chords and their progression, fingerings, strum patterns, guitar assessment, construction, preventative and periodic maintenance, strings and changing them, guitar technique and tuning. Students should bring a guitar to class (acoustic guitars preferred; however, only very small amplifiers, 5 - 10 watts maximum, if bringing electric).
