Acoustic Guitar Lessons for Beginners (4/6, 4/20, 5/4, 5/11)

  • Apr 6, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members












WHAT: This is an Acoustic Guitar course designed for Beginners taught by John Silva. However, this is NOT an Absolute Beginner Course. If you are an absolute beginner we have a separate class that starts you off. This course assumes you can play basic chords (A, E, F, G, C, D Eminor. A minor). Our goal with this course is to enable to walk out after four weeks to more confidently play in a jam session with others. We will build upon what was covered in the previous Absolute Beginners course.

Content to be covered includes:

*Review of all the basic major and minor chords

*Exploration of 'e shaped' and 'a shaped' Bar chords

*More ear training

*Extensive practice on various songs from our Songbook

*More practice with different strumming patterns, getting a feel for the rhythm of a song.

*Chord transistions

*Learn to work well with others in a jam.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This is not absolute Beginner Course. It is designed for those who've gone through the Absolute Beginner Class that we offered in the past and/or can play the basic chords (ie-A,E,F,G,C,D, E minor, A minor) Maybe you are still struggling with F chord a bit. That's ok. If you want to start to make that bridge from beginner to intermediate this may be for you. We are looking for people who can play basic chords and want to expand their capabilities so that they can feel more confident taking part in group jams. If you've come to one of our free beginner jams and still feel a bit overwhelmed in your ability to keep up with others, then this class may be for you.

As with all classes, if you really want to improve you need to also set aside time to practice. Coming to a class without practicing really limits how far you can progress. If you plan on joining us make sure you can set aside time to practice.

THIS CLASS IS LIMITED TO 4 STUDENTS: Space is reserved when we receive your payment($76 through paypal, or you can send me a check for $72)

WHEN: This is a four week class which will be held on:

Saturday, May 4th, 2013

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

FEE: This is a class, it's not a jam so there is a fee of $76 through paypal or $72 if you pay by check. (Contact me if you want to pay by check. Space is ONLY reserved once we have received your payment.) This fee covers all four lessons. Each lesson is 1 1/2 hours long. The semi private class is limited to 4 students, to ensure more individual attention than larger class sizes.
