Beginning Strummers: 5 - 7 years

$188 ($178 members) · 55 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks · 5, 6 & 7 years

This playful class introduces kids to chords, rhythms and simple melodies on guitar. Through singing, dancing and musical games in a supportive social environment, kids learn to play our thoughtfully developed repertoire of folk tunes and contemporary melodies. Alongside encouraging teachers and friends, they engage in an adventurous process of playing guitar that builds upon early successes making music with their instrument.


Little Strummers and Little Drummers recommended but not required.
