Introduce your child to the exciting world of classical guitar! An instrument equally comfortable in a college ensemble as on stage as a soloist, classical guitar is a globally thriving instrument that provides a lifetime of enjoyment for practitioners. Students will build on prior knowledge from their school’s music program with activities that begin them on the path of classical musicianship, and additionally provide them with beginning-level skills and knowledge necessary to pursue any musical activity that speaks to them later in life–a true comprehensive musicianship program. While this class is designed for students who may be home-schooled, all students are welcome.
Materials Needed: Classical Guitar
Minimum Class size: 4
