Guitar Lessons


This course is designed for the beginner and intermediate player. Students will explore the basic fundamentals of how to play this challenging instrument. The class will examine basic chords, strumming, rhythms, finger-picking and much more. With practice, they will eventually be able to play simple and familiar songs. No previous knowledge of guitar is necessary. Students must have a guitar and an electronic guitar tuner in good working condition.

Special Notes:

This course requires Teams or FaceTime with a stable Internet connection.


The Guitar class is a thirteen-week course and is designed for the beginner as well as the intermediate player. We will examine the basic chords, strumming, rhythms, finger-picking and much more. No previous knowledge of guitar is necessary, but you must have a guitar in good working condition.

We meet once a week on Skype and the rest of the days you will practice by yourself following the practice guides that I’ve prepared for you in Buzz or through the lesson practices that I will send to you.
