Little Strummers

$156 ($146 members) · 45 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks · 4 & 5 years

This class allows you to participate in your child’s journey with music. Your child learns basic elements of the guitar and begins using this knowledge to play music, starting your child on a musical journey that lasts a lifetime. Class repertoire includes age-appropriate popular songs from the past and present, including folk and other styles.

Little Strummers is a parent-child class--an exploration of music and song and musical concepts through the guitar. Our goal is nurture a love for music and the guitar through this class. We learn to care for the guitar, hold the guitar, name its parts, and delight in the sounds we can make with guitar! While grownups don't need to bring their own guitar, they participate alongside their children--witnessing and supporting their child's growth.

We don't have the capacity to offer makeups for this class, but if you miss, we invite you to come to one of our FREE open Jams and in particular the Saturday Jam any Saturday at noon at 909 Armitage. This is always open to you and a great place to practice, play, and DO music with kids of all ages, teachers, friends, and family.


No experience necessary.

Special Info
