This class is taught by guitar master, Tom Sandahl.  He is one of the very finest teachers in town for children(and adults) and we are so excited to have him at the school!

Tom will start with the anatomy of the instrument, tuning, basic chords, and then get kids strumming and singing fun and easy rock and roll songs from the 1950’s to current day.  This not only builds their confidence, self-discipline, and self-esteem, but will bring them much joy to play music with others and also for themselvesl

Tom will use songs by artists such as Bob Dylan, Beatles, Greenday, Ed Sheeran, and some other “Classic” favorites to demonstrate the many techniques, riffs, chords, and strum patterns. It is important to try to learn from all styles and genres of music, from folk to rock to pop music. Tom is honored to introduce and share his experience and knowledge with your children.

Especially for the beginner, a special focus on guitar techniques, fingerings, and rhythmic mastery will be reinforced by Tom.  He will demonstrate the importance of proper practice techniques thoroughly.  At this stage, it is crucial to develop good habits at a young age as to avoid future injuries from poor technique. 

These are small group classes.  We cap them at 10 students per class.  This allows for high quality instruction from our experienced faculty.  

This class runs every Monday from 10/1 thru 11/5, 4:30-5:20pm
