ADULT CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
Have you always wanted to learn to play guitar? This class focuses on the basic nuts and bolts. You’ll learn chords, scales and all the fundamentals. We balance learning with having fun – part of each class is working on the skills but we always take plenty of time to have fun and play songs – we don’t do boring music – we start with great songs from the Beatles, Eagles, Neil Young, etc… And you’ll be able to participate and play along from day one. You’ll receive an individualized learning plan that fits your interests and goals.
Already know basic chords and maybe some scales? Level two will help you take the next step. You’ll learn additional chords, barre chords, fingerpicking skills, combining chords and riffs, how to turn scales into lead parts and the riffs of particular songs. There is a lot of room in this class to individualize your learning – we’ll create an individualized plan to help you develop exactly what skills are next for you. As in Beginning Guitar, there is a balance between skill development and group playing, song development and fun.
Come immerse yourself in the music. You’ll still learn but the emphasis is more on playing together in a group format. From absolute beginners to more advanced players, it’s a blast to play, sing and be a part of the music. No one is put on the spot – it’s easy to blend in and just let the music move you. This is a great way to make music a wonderful part of your life. The chords and lyrics are projected on a screen for all to see. Just like you might drop into a yoga class, you’re welcome to come to a Playing Class anytime.

Finding myself with some time on my hands and acting on a recommendation by a friend to check out “Meetups” to find people with similar interests, I came across Harmony Music Center’s music jams and beginning guitar classes. What a fantastic find! I cannot say enough about the organizer and instructor, Andrew, who not only is a fantastic musician, but more importantly is a great guy with a lot of patience.
I highly recommend these classes as a wonderful opportunity to polish your skills, or maybe finally pick back up that guitar you’ve been storing away for years (me). Or, if you are someone who always wanted to play but couldn’t find the time – these stress free classes are perfect for you!
Andrew supplies the music and the know how. Bring a guitar and the desire to play and sing music in a group of peers in a totally non-competitive atmosphere. I look forward to each class and the next lesson and miss the group when I cannot attend. Group lessons and Sunday Jams. They are now just a part of my life.
I, like many others before me, have always wanted to learn to play the guitar, it’s on my very short bucket list! I was briefly introduced as a teen, and quit; was re-introduced as a young mother, instructor moved away after 2 lessons, so I quit. I met Andrew in September of last year and the 3rd time has been a charm! Andrew is a wonderfully patient, encouraging, totally supportive teacher! The best part of it is there is no pressure and Andrew truly makes it FUN! I love playing and I even love practicing. I can see my improvement every month and look forward to each lesson – it’s my time and this is just for me. I can actually play some popular songs now and he has given me the tools to work on these songs on my own as well as helping me in class. I highly recommend that anyone who really wants to play add Andrew’s class to your own bucket list!
