Intro to playing guitar with just three easy chords.  With this simple 3 chord pattern, anyone can play literally thousand of familiar songs.  We will begin with three tunes that we  all have heard at some point : “Amazing Grace” “Happy Birthday”  and “When the Saints Go Marching In”. Then – it is easy to expand from there.  Each class will start with a very simple “Musical Ear Test”. We encourage parents & students of all ages to participate in this basic musical aptitude test.

WHY
Extensive studies have proven that anyone who plays a musical instrument excels in Math, Science, and Social Studies not to mention the Leadership, Teamwork and Social benefits. The art of Music is one of Gods Great Gifts to all of us.  Just listening to music is a joy however, playing music live is a much deeper positive experience.
