Guitar For Kids!

This is a perfect class to teach kids how to play guitar. We start with the basics and learn about the instrument, what makes it special, how it works, and what goes into playing songs. In this step by step approach, get the instruction you need to start building your guitar skills.

What are the building blocks of songs and how will I use them on guitar? What are chords and how are they different than single notes? What is the difference between strumming and picking?

We go in depth into the parts and pieces that make the guitar special. Practice playing notes, picking techniques, building chords, and learning strumming patterns so we can dissect easy songs and have fun playing them!

Even with little to no experience, this class is a great way to explore your passion for guitar and start building your skills. We learn simple chords shapes and basic melodies that will be easy to execute, and best of all…. we keep it FUN.

We’ll look at songs like Baby Shark, themes to Fortnite and Minecraft, and more!

Office Hours

Need a quick refresher of something you did in a class? Did you forget a chord, a fingering, or short melodic phrase? 

Office Hours are short, 15-minute scheduled online “lessons” that serve the primary purpose of getting quick, extra help, better explanations, or short refreshers from a teacher outside of your normal class or lesson time. Office Hours can only be scheduled as an online session and are not available for in-home. 

Office hours are a great way to follow up with a teacher after an online class to get a one-on-one explanation of complicated concepts.
