Title: String Band Group Lessons
Location: Grassroots Guitar
Instructor: Ryan Edwards
Description: This course is designed to facilitate students (ages 6 and older) in playing songs with others in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Students must be willing to learn and ready to have fun! Students should also take private lessons with an instructor so that the nuances of each particular instrument can be fully addressed.
Beginning students may focus strictly on the melody, or perhaps on the chord strumming. More advanced students will probably wish to learn both the melody and the chords, and may even wish to try songs on different instruments!
We play a variety of familiar folk tunes, classical pieces, and traditional songs. Students gain a basic understanding of common scales, chords, and keys. All music is provided for the students. There is plenty for everyone to learn at different skill levels.
Each course consists of eight weekly one-hour classes at $125 per student, available during most of the year. Courses must be scheduled in advance to reserve materials and placement for each student. Payment is due by the first day of the course. Reimbursement for home-school programs is often available.
