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!

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.
