Acoustic GuitARMY: A Song-Learning Boot Camp for Kids!


Just in time to keep guitar skills or gain some new ones over summer break! Learn song melodies and chords for popular and well-known tunes. Play them in the group together and perform them at the end of the session!

This class will be an 8-week session of 50 minute classes.

Class meets Tuesdays at 5:00-5:50 each week from June 4th-July 30th.            (No classes on July 2)

$150 per student.  ENROLL HERE! Space is limited to 12 students!

Students will need to bring their own acoustic guitar in a case or bag, a few guitar picks, and a clip-on tuner to each class. A folder and guitar music will be provided. (Discounts given for siblings, currently enrolled private students, and students from both Veritas Academy and Quest for Education & Arts)

This class is geared for kids aged 9 and up that have completed at least 6 months of guitar study. A minimum requirement is knowledge of all of the natural notes on the six open strings and knowledge of most of the open chords on guitar. (Having competed Hal Leonard Guitar Book 1 through page 24 or Alfred Kids Guitar through page 28 would be recommended.) This class is not intended to teach the student how to play guitar but to supplement and engage the student who is already learning through application to songs. Concurrent private guitar lessons or classes to learn technique, method and theory, as applied to guitar, is always recommended and encouraged. This class serves as an extension of knowledge already learned or actively being studied. There will be a fair amount of repetition in the class but the pace will be intensive overall.

No make-ups or credits for missed classes. There may be a finale performance for this class, details TBA.

All classes will be held at The Jim Howell Music Studio. (No make-ups or credits are given for missed class(es). An outline of class activities is handed out each session. In the event of a missed class this outline and any music notation can be emailed to you.)
