Ages: 5 yrs and up
Cost: $30/ Class
10 Weeks

Our very own Kindergarten teacher, Mr. Colin, will be our new after school guitar teacher! Colin has always had a passion for music. This eventually led him to teach himself how to play guitar. Colin has been playing guitar for 20 years and taught guitar in France before moving to the United States. This class will offer an exciting and fun way to learn the guitar. It will include references in both English and French in order to increase our students' musical vocabulary in both languages.

Parents will be responsible for renting or buying their own guitar, however Mr. Colin and myself will be available to help with any questions regarding sizes, strings, and brands. When you do purchase or rent a guitar it is highly recommended that it has nylon strings. Nylon strings are easier to manipulate by younger musicians
