For this class, recommended age is 8-14(exceptions made)

This class is taught by guitar master teacher, Tracy Kim. He has taught thousands of students over the last 20+ years! And can still remember the names of most(including names of parents!)

Tracy will begin this basic guitar class with the anatomy of the guitar. Teaching the notes and how it relates to both the piano and guitar. Kids will learn basic open chords and will soon be singing folk classics(Bob Dylan and Van Morrison) and then modern classics(Ed Sheeran).

Tracy will share his important warmup routine which will develop right and left hand independence and coordination. Proper fingering technique is crucially at the beginning stages to develop good habits and avoid future injury.

Picking and strum patterns will also be examined all while learning fun and familiar songs(by Beatles, Greenday, etc). Tracy will help the student learn to master reading guitar tabs- then the student will soon be able to teach themselves!

Tracy will also introduce the art of fingerpicking. All the students will learn excerpts from songs such as the classic, Blackbird, by the Beatles. Also, the song Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran is used to demonstrate a more contemporary approach to fingerpicking.

This is a fantastic intro to guitar class that will get the students playing and loving to practice! The parents will not have to tell them to practice…..guaranteed! The kids always enjoy play fun simple riffs at home for friends and family.

These are small group classes.  We cap them at 10 students per class.  This allows for high quality instruction from our experienced faculty.  Acoustic or Electric guitar is fine. We supply all teaching materials.

This class runs every Wednesday from 10/3 thru 11/7, 5:30-6:20pm
