Group Lessons - Spring 2020 

Our group lessons are focused on giving you the skills you need to join a jam session.  From beginner to intermediate guitar players we have the right class for you! 

This three series course (Beginning Guitar Levels 1- 3) will walk you through everything you need to know to build good habits from the start. You'll get practice playing simple chord progressions over and over until you can transition smoothly and then starting jamming with your favorite music. If you have some skill already, but want to improve, contact us to discuss your level and which class best would fit you.
