Group Guitar Class   -   2nd through 5th grades

The Group Guitar class is the perfect experience for beginning guitarists who want to try the instrument in a group of friends. They'll begin working on playing melodies, reading guitar chords, and learning basic strumming patterns to apply to some rockin pop tunes. The class is a great way to try out the guitar and see if it's a good instrument for you, before you begin private lessons.

You will need to provide your own guitar and a spiral notebook for the class.  We can offer assistance in obtaining a guitar at a reasonable cost.

Tuesdays, 2:45 - 3:30 


Fall Group Guitar is $265.  ​​

The Fall session will run October 1st - December 17th.

Step the Beat Music Fundamentals 

Our unique group introduction to music class. Through our combined teaching experience of more than 50 years, the instructors of Musical Chairs have created an innovative music class designed to build a strong music foundation prior to beginning private instrument instruction.

Our 4 focuses are:

* Note Reading * Rhythm Essentials * Ear Training * Sight Reading *

Once these basic skills are mastered separate from the instrument, children move into learning specific instruments with quicker success, more confidence and significantly less frustration.

This class has two offerings:​
Tuesdays, 10:45 - 11:30        or        Wednesdays, 2:45 - 3:30 (only 2 spots remain)

A Kindergarten through 1st grade class will be offered if there is sufficient interest.
