Guitar Workshop!

About Guitar Workshop!

Students will be led through an intensive one-month electric guitar class. Learn the fundamentals of popular songs through chords, melodies, rhythms, and essential fretboard technique. Knowing how and why musical patterns work will help you to teach yourself and develop a solid foundation. Proper hand technique and ergonomically correct playing will be a focus. Acoustic or electric guitarists of all levels welcome.

  • - Recognizing and playing common musical themes
  • - Learn songs you like from a list compiled by the class on the first day
  • - Tricks and tips for learning music more quickly
  • - Easier memorization of pieces
  • - Being able to play with others

  • - Electric guitarist's guide to tone and basic pedal order

Hi! I'm a professional guitarist and educator in Los Angeles, California. I graduated with an M.F.A. in music and am a doctoral student. I believe learning the fundamentals and ideas behind WHY songs work will help you teach yourself and build a foundation.

Class: Guitar Foundations with Sara Landeau

solid teacher with a vision as to where she wants the class/lesson to go, and new ways of approaching for all level especially novice/beginners. This class was nice as the sections were well defined and you could follow even in an after class process.

A great balance of theory and practical exercises covering a breadth of topics. I felt like I improved so much more during this 4 week period than I would have on my own!

Sara does a great job enjoy her classes and the wide range of styles she was made to be an educator/instructor comes very naturally to her. This is my third class with her and at times the material repeats from prior classes, but that being said I will be back.

Really a good format for me as it was pick and choose, lets me integrated what I was trying to achieve but still learn new ideas, the Triads have been a great daily exercise for soloing and hammer on off practice, will be doing these programs moving forward better format for me than one on one lessons.
