Try a class before committing to the full 8 weeks

Everyone is welcome to try the first class before committing to the full 8-week session. If for any reason you don't wish to continue, you'll just be asked to pay $45 at the end of class for the single class, if you're not sure that you're in the right level you can try a class of a different level at no additional cost - this takes the pressure off deciding!

Online Course Included 

Each in-person class is accompanied by an online course where each lesson has an instructional video that is posted with any accompanying handouts after the live class takes place. This gives you the opportunity to review what happened in class, and if you miss a class you will be able to catch up with the video.

Online-Only Courses

All Classes are also available to be taken "online only". This is great if you are not able to join us is person. All online classes are 50% off the class cost. It's also 50% off to repeat any class level except for "Guitar for Lifers" (Upper Level Class).

Wednesdays 6:30 - 7:30pm
January 15 - March 4


For people who know a few chords (C, Em, G, D, A, Am and E), can change between these chords (even slowly) and are just starting to strum (there is very little strumming in L1 - we start strumming in level 2). We also begin finger picking and learning to read tablature. 

 

Mondays 7:30 - 8:30pm
January 13 - March 2


In the Level 3 class we continue to work on strumming (adding more complex strumming), and we start to learn about the language of music and how it applies to our playing. Sometimes people take this class for the music theory even if playing is a bit more advanced.
 

 

Mondays 6:30 - 7:30pm

January 13 - March 2

The Level 4 class is all about embellishing chords. If you can strum in time and want to kick it up a notch (and understand what you're doing) this is a good level for you. We work with suspended chords and techniques to embellish both strumming and fingerpicking. We also continue our theory knowledge with learning how to harmonize the scale to build chord progressions. Sometimes people take this class for the music theory even if their playing is a bit more advanced.

 

This class will be offered again in the Spring!
The Level 5 class is all about learning, practicing and understanding barre chords! (as well as continuing to utilize all we've learned in previous levels) This is a big step in unlocking and being able to visualize the rest of the fretboard. Barre chords are physically challenging so we stay steady and intersperse the barre chords with a great fingerpicking song!

 

Thursdays 6:30 - 7:30pm

January 16 - March 5

In this class we start to open up and utilize the whole fretboard.  We learn all the moveable chord shapes with their partial chord voicings and use this as the basis for deeply understanding the fretboard. You'll be able to play, embellish and improvise with the songs that you're interested in playing. (More info on class page!)

 

Thursdays 7:45 - 8:45pm

January 16 - March 5  


Have you been playing other people's songs and now you'd like to write your own?

Have you always wanted to express yourself in song? (More info on the Songwriting Page!)

 

Online Class
January 13 - March 2  

You'll be identifying specific playing goals and you'll get encouragement, inspiration and guidance to turn your musical desires into reality! This is great for both current students as well as for students taking a break between sessions who are wanting to stay motivated to keep playing.
