Youth Guitar Classes - Suggested Ages 10 thru 14
The Friendly youth guitar curriculum teaches your child the fundamentals of music theory and an understanding of how the guitar works, all while jamming traditional, classic rock, and contemporary tunes in an encouraging and fun group environment.
CLASSES ARE 60 MIN. AND PRICE IS SET FOR 8 WEEKLY LESSONS PER SESSION.
Beginner Classes - MONDAYS 5:00-6:00
The Friendly beginning guitar class is for youth, suggested ages 10-14, who are new to the guitar. In the beginning class, we will learn fundamental rhythm and strumming skills, chords and riffs, reading tablature and rhythmic notation, and songs in guitar-friendly keys. The beginning guitar class is the first in a two-part guitar curriculum and is intended to be repeated until the prerequisites for the intermediate guitar class are met.
Advanced Beginner Classes - MONDAYS 4:00-5:00
The Friendly advanced beginning guitar class is for youth, suggested ages 10-14, who have passed the Friendly School’s beginning guitar class, or by instructor permission. In this class, we will develop more complex rhythm and strumming skills, learn melodies and riffs, focus more specifically on good tone, and continue to expand our chord vocabulary. The advanced beginning class is the second in the Friendly School’s two-part guitar curriculum and is intended to be repeated until the student is ready to join an ensemble or to perform a piece at a showcase or open mic.
