Guitar Classes

What happens during Guitar Classes? Students work independently while following a guided lesson plan made for them by their instructor. Their lesson plan checklist changes every week according to what the student needs and their individual pace and also functions as their practice sheet for the week. 

Who are Guitar Classes for? Our classes are designed for children aged 8 to 10 and 11 to 14 who are beginners at the instrument and want to have fun while learning! 

When is Guitar Class? Guitar class for students aged 8 to 10 will be on Mondays from 4:30 to 5:30. Guitar class for students aged 11 to 14 will be on Wednesday from 4:30 to 5:30. Classes will begin the week of January 22nd.

What will students learn from joining a Guitar Class? They'll learn traditional note and rhythm reading, chords, scales, fretboard knowledge, and how to play songs. This functions largely like a college guitar class - except we've simplified a few things and made our goals more attainable! They'll also gain confidence and will learn how to teach themselves and be self-motivators. The goal of guitar classes is to inspire and instill a love for music making that students will carry for the rest of their lives.

Do we need instruments at home for this class? We have extra guitars around the studio if you don't have one or if yours doesn't make it to class. We're very focused on making music accessible to all and keeping it fun while picking up some new skills along the way. (Disclaimer: you'll have so much fun that you'll definitely want to practice! The more students are around their instrument and playing the more they like their instrument!) Instruments are always available for rent or purchase in Nugent Music & Audio if a student wants to learn at a faster pace.

What is the Cost of Guitar Classes? The spring semester will consist of 15 weeks of lessons for a discounted total of $435. Lessons will begin the week of January 22nd. This can be broken down into 5 installment payments of $87, due on the 1st of January, February, March, April and May. A $3 convenience fee will be applied to the monthly installments.
