Guitar for Singers

This ten-session live, interactive, group class is for singers who would like to improve their guitar skills. Classes are held via live video conference, and are also recorded for enrolled students to re-watch later -- and so you won't miss a beat if you need to miss a class. The first of the 10 weekly sessions is Wednesday, January 25th, from 7-7:45 pm. 

As a singer, being able to accompany yourself on the guitar opens up a whole new world of opportunity.  You will be self sufficient, more marketable, and a better musician.  This class presents an organized approach to basic guitar and gaining the coordination necessary to accompany your voice.  With materials ranging from beginner to intermediate for each subject this class is suited for students of various levels.  Here are some of the topics we will cover:

  • Extensive Study of Common Chord Types
  • Strumming Techniques
  • Fingerpicking Techniques
