Beginning Guitar Class

from 89.00

Instructor: Adam Gardino

This class meets Saturdays 10:00-11:00 am

We’ll cover the basic building blocks you’ll need to understand your instrument and to begin to make music as quickly as possible. Some of the subjects we’ll cover:
o The parts of a guitar
o How to hold your guitar
o How to tune your guitar
o A few basic chords
o Basic strumming with picks and fingers
o How to read a chord/lyric sheet
o Simple songs
o How to practice

We won’t get much into music theory or particular playing styles. The goal is to get you playing a simple song or two as quickly as possible.

Prerequisites: A decent-quality guitar that won’t impede your progress is important. A pick. A tuner. A capo. We’ll take it from there!
