Guitar for Beginners
with Pat Colwell
This class is designed for those who are either rusty or who have never played. Don’t worry if you can’t read music. Participants will learn to play basic chords that will allow you to join in on simple songs. You will become familiar with the parts of your guitar, “open” chords, finger placement, different genres of music and much more. Soon you will be strumming along to your favorite music! Bring your acoustic guitar, tuner, and a flat pick. A 3- ring binder or pocket folder is highly encouraged.
Please note: there will be no class on February 19.
Acoustic Jam Session
with Pat Colwell
Tired of strumming your guitar alone in your basement or garage? Ready to take the next step and start playing with others? This class will provide students with a low pressure, non judgmental opportunity to experience the joy that comes from making music with other people. We will focus primarily on acoustic guitar-based music, but other acoustic instruments such as mandolins, fiddles, bass & harmonicas are welcome, as are people who would like to try singing with a group. Students should have a solid understanding of their instruments including tuning, basic chords and rhythm patterns and be willing to work in small groups with other musicians. The ability to accept constructive feedback from an instructor is also important.
