2019 Summer Music Camp: Beginning Guitar for Kids, ages 8-14 (10-noon)


For this Beginning Guitar Camp, recommended age is 8-14(please call for exceptions). We will assemble the “class” based on age group(try to keep them within 2 years of each other). Once a session(week long) is full, we will post it at the bottom of the page under the “please note”.

We will start with the anatomy of the instrument, tuning, basic chords, teach the students how to read rhythms and tabs, and then get kids strumming and playing fun and easy songs from old to current day.  This week long camp not only builds their confidence, self-discipline, and self-esteem, but will bring them much joy to play music with others and also just for themselvesl

Kids will learn and be exposed to songs from various genres and styles. They will learn songs and riffs by artists such as Bob Dylan, Beatles, Queen, AC/DC, White Stripes, Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, Greenday, Ed Sheeran, and some other “Classic” favorites to demonstrate the many techniques, riffs, chords, and strum patterns.

This intro to guitar camp is a great way to learn songs, develop basic music skills(counting, keeping tempo, etc) while also jamming with others. There will be a mini performance at the end of each week. Super fun! 

These are small group classes.  We cap them at 8 students per camp.  This allows for high quality instruction from our experienced faculty.  Class needs at least 4 students to occur.

This week-long camp runs everyday, Monday thru Friday from June 17- August 30th, 10AM-noon

The cost is $199 per week. Please call, text, or email to schedule your desired week(s) and to check availability.

Please call Tracy at (503)236-8613 to confirm which weeks(s) you would like to register your child. or email: happyvalleyschoolofmusic@gmail.com

Please Note: No camps during week of July 1-5(Happy 4th!)
