Come on over and have a great time with us.  We learn how to play different chords, melodies and various guitar techniques as well as the basics of music.  Bring in a favorite song to learn and enjoy learning new ones.  No experience needed.

If you have played before, but have reached a plateau and need a refresher or are ready for new challenges, I do a special lesson set to fit your specific guitar needs.

Class may be taken more than once….every class is different.  This is a wonderful way to get out of the house, relax, have fun with others and learn a musical skill.
