Learn the basic elements of the six-string guitar and be introduced to chords, various strumming styles and the keys to playing along with your favorite music. Kevin uses quick learning tips to have fun learning how to tune the strings and play basic chords from different musical genres. The class is for beginners, children and adult guitar enthusiasts. Students must bring a six-string guitar to the class.
We will continue to build on the concepts of chord structures for songs from many different styles of music. The class will also introduce students to the basics of melody and solo line playing over the music on any chosen song. This class is for those who have previously taken a beginner guitar class from Mr. Campbell or any other guitar teacher.
If you are unsure, please contact us, and we will help to appropriately place you in the best class for your level. Students should bring their own guitar to class.
