Beginner's Guitar Course

Students ages 6 to 18 learn to perform solo, duet and ensemble pieces in a group setting. Instructors choose the required materials to promote the best learning environment.

Beginner's Guitar Class I is a 10-week course designed for the beginner looking to learn the basics of music notation, chords, picking and strumming technique. Students learn to perform solo, duet and ensemble pieces in a group setting. Instructors choose the required materials to promote the best learning environment. All ages are welcome. Adult classes are sometimes offered if there is sufficient interest.

Classes meet every Tuesday at the USC School of Music building (room TBD). A concert takes place on the last day of the course, giving students an opportunity to perform and share what they learned with their peers and guests.

After completing the beginner’s course, students have an opportunity to continue their education by applying to another session of the class offered in the spring term or by applying for private lessons (recommended).
