GUITAR FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS
I’m excited to be offering a group guitar class for adult beginners! It’s a 10 week course developed by NYC Guitar School, where I formerly taught. Weekly hour long sessions include a copy of NYCGS’s Amazon best-seller “Guitar for Absolute Beginners”(check it out here), access to their Online Beginners Course (over 400 videos), and mimosas! I really love teaching this curriculum and I’m excited to offer it here in PDX. I’ve taught over a hundred students with this method and it convinced me that anyone is capable of playing guitar and strumming their favorite songs. Credit must be given to my former mentor Dan Emery at NYC Guitar School for developing the class over at least a decade (check out their website here). The focus of the class is to provide a strong foundation for playing with an emphasis on chords, strumming patterns, reading charts, and playing your favorite songs from the last few decades. Group classes give you a structured, step-by-step approach in a friendly, supportive atmosphere. You’ll learn to strum confidently and play some of your favorite songs, all while getting tons of joy out of that guitar you have sitting around. If you have the desire to play guitar, you will be successful.

The next session begins Saturday March 30th, 2019 from 12:30pm - 1:30pm
WHAT TO BRING?
A guitar! Acoustic or classical style is best but electric will work. It should be mostly functioning (I’m not a luthier) but I can help assess the situation.
$275 will cover the whole 10 week course including a copy of NYCGS’s Amazon best-seller “Guitar for Absolute Beginners”(check it out here), access to their Online Beginners Course (over 400 videos), and mimosas! Once you register I’ll ask for payment to secure your spot in the class. I can accept payment via PayPal, Venmo, check, or cash.
