Class Experience

Students will learn the parts of a guitar and how to tune a guitar. They will learn how to read chord charts, and how to form them. Students will also learn a few strumming patterns. With these basics, students will have an excellent foundation for playing many of their favorite songs!
For homework, students are encouraged to practice what they have been taught between classes. 15 minutes a day is encouraged.
Students must have a guitar (acoustic or classical). It must have 6 strings.
They must also have a tuner. A free tuner app downloaded to a device is absolutely fine! Please have the tuner ready before the first class. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
