Class experience

US Grade 4 - 8
Beginner Level
To ensure effective tutoring, the teacher suggests meeting 2x per week. Book additional recurring meetings after the initial purchase.
Learning guitar notes 
Picking and playing a note to make it “sing” 
Strumming and rhythm
Hearing the basics of a favorite song
Chords

Homework Offered

Assessments Offered

Grades Offered
Provide a basic classical (nylon strings) acoustic (no electric) or electric guitar (with amplifier)
