Beginning guitar class:

This is where it all begins! If you've never played guitar before, or if you have, but it's been so long you can't quite remember which hand you strum with, then this is a great opportunity to get started. Classes will focus on learning melodies, basic chords, strumming patterns, tuning, and keeping time in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Students grouped by age. Classes meet once a week for eight weeks.

Tuition: $160


Beginning Drum Class:

Students in this class will begin to learn the skills necessary to play drums in a rock band - basic stick technique and drumming skills, along with fundamental back beats and fills. Classes meet once a week for eight weeks.

Tuition: $160


Beginning Violin Class

This is a great way to get started on the violin at any age! Students will learn fundamentals of technique and will develop aural skills. Classes meet once a week for eight weeks.
