Group Guitar Class - Beginner

Throughout the year we offer beginner level guitar classes at the Santa Clara Adult Education Center and through the De Anza/Foothill College Short Course Program.  Both classes are taught using the book I've Always Wanted to PLAY GUITAR written by instructor Rich Hawthorne.

Both classes are great for students that have no prior experience on guitar.  Here are just some of the topics covered in class:

Proper right and left hand technique.Playing a simple "Blues Riff."Basic chords.The fundamentals of rhythm and note reading.Strumming patterns and using them to accompany a couple of simple songs.
And that's just the beginner class!  Once you complete this class, you will be eligible to continue with more advance classes at The Guitarist.
