Beginner’s Guitar Academy
Do music symbols look like foreign drawings to you? Learn to speak the musical language with your guitar! Beginner’s Guitar Academy will help you understand basic skills and demystify terms, symbols and the basic theory of music. Learn correct left- and right-hand positions; special exercises to accelerate the guitar playing; get started with chords; rhythm patterns and strums; learn successful practice techniques; and much more. Students will need own guitar. MAEC has a limited number of guitars available for use on a first come basis. Participants can enroll in a second Beginner Guitar Academy to review materials or continue with more advanced instruction.
