« back to classes page
Welcome to the world of guitar! In this introductory course, teens will learn everything needed to start strumming their favorite tunes in no time. We'll begin with the basics of guitar anatomy and proper technique for holding and tuning your instrument. Then, we'll dive into the world of melodies and harmonies, learning how to play major, minor, and 7th chords that form the foundation of so many great songs. We'll also cover the basics of rhythm and strumming patterns so you can start to develop your own unique sound. And of course, we'll touch on the essential skills of reading guitar tablature and sheet music. The final class will feature a jam session for all families to attend!
