Group Guitar for Kids
Get started learning to play guitar! In this fun group setting you’ll learn about the strings, frets, tuning, and playing chords and melodies. You’ll explore reading tablature and enjoy playing songs together. This class will also do a weekly art project based around the guitar and its origins, history, and its place in our modern life. Acoustic and electric guitars are welcome, and we have acoustic guitars available to borrow for the duration of the class on a first come, first served basis if you need one.
Note: No class January 18.

IMPORTANT: The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our #1 priority. If, due to circumstances beyond our control, it becomes necessary for Artistree to close its doors this fall, any in-progress classes will move to an online format. Our instructors and patrons will keep in mind that a transition to virtual learning is a possibility. Artistree will issue no refunds or credits for classes that cannot continue to run in person and must move to a virtual platform.
