This class is a great introduction for students who might then proceed to a private teacher. We will get your hands picking, strumming, and fretting. Electric or acoustic guitar is ok (no amplifier required).

Materials: Use a guitar you already own or we recommend First Act guitars (available online) as an inexpensive solution (starting around $35-40).
