Beginner and Intermediate Guitar Lessons

Facilitated by Mike Bravener

Thursday (3:00 – Beginner, 2:00 – Intermediate)  1 hour each.  September to May

You will learn all the basic chords and strumming patterns so that you can play 3 or more chord songs.  I help you learn to play the songs you love to play.  In the Intermediate class I build on that and teach Barre Chords and the little “riffs” that make your playing more interesting.  I also teach basic scales at this level so you can learn to solo. ($90 for 6 weeks)
