Beginner Guitar Classes for Ages 6-10

Is your child the next Eric Clapton, or maybe Andres Segovia? Either way, this class is a great introduction to playing the guitar. In just 4 short weeks we will cover basic left and right-hand techniques, learn simple melodies and accompaniments, and even explore ensemble playing.

Music education has been proven to assist children academically as well as emotionally and socially. Introduce your child to music with this hands-on class to see which instrument your child is drawn to naturally. Children will have the opportunity to try both instruments as well as play musical games.
