Beginning Guitar

No experience is required for this fun and informative introduction to the classical guitar. 

Classes will take place on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-7:00pm for 8 weeks, starting on February 7th and wrapping up on April 4th (class will not meet on March 14th). All classes will meet in the Lobby of the Rosette.

Intermediate Guitar

This class is the perfect fit for adult students who have taken the Beginning Guitar Class, or who already have some basic classical guitar skills, and are eager to learn more in a fun, no pressure group setting.

Students will build new skills, such as reading in 1st and 5th position, learn ascending and descending scales and arpeggios, practice performing musically, dive into the next level of ensemble and solo music, and even give a performance at the end of the class! 

Classes will take place on Tuesday evenings from 7:15-8:15pm for 8 weeks, starting on February 7th and wrapping up on April 4th (class will not meet on March 14th). All classes will meet in the Lobby of the Rosette.

Advanced Guitar
