Have a guitar sitting somewhere, just waiting to be played? Ever wanted to strum the strings and make music, but think it's too hard for you? With a little practice, anyone can learn to play the guitar, so sign up for this class designed to transform your view of the guitar into the joyous, creative, and accessible musical instrument that it is.
Learn how to read music, play the open chords that are widely used in guitar music, and gain an overview of basic music theory. You and your fellow students will help pick the pieces to be taught, so everyone will have a choice of music.
