January 4, 11, 18, & 25 and February 1 & 8 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Learn the basics of playing guitar and discover how enjoyable it is to play as part of a supportive group! You will learn guitar tuning, basic chords, strumming patterns, keeping time, and a few easy songs. This class requires no experience, just a desire to learn and the time and determination to practice daily for 20-30 minutes. Students will take away an organized approach to practice and the ability to play some fun, easy songs in various keys. Making music is good for the soul! Supply list located at artcentereast.org/calendar. Please enter through the 5th Street door.
