2016 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence

Guitar Group Class

Offered for beginner and intermediate guitar students in grade 5 - 8.  This year, we are excited to incorporate the Consonus Music Institute Guitar Fundamentals which will allow for multi-level class instruction.  It is an online, layered method in which students will have access to a method book and on-line instruction in class and at home.  Students will be instructed in guitar basics, note reading, ?nger picking, chord playing, rhythm patterns, various music styles and improvisation.  The goal is to give students the tools needed to play music of their choice! 
All student needs to supply is an instrument.  Instruments can be rented or purchased at Zeagler Music, Allison’s Music and Guitar Center.  A good beginner acoustic guitar with nylon strings will be easier on the ?ngers to start (toy guitars not recommended).   
Guitar Class will be taught by Mrs. Michelle Nelson in the SGS Music Room in St. Cecilia Hall on Tuesday, after-school from 2:45 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.  
Pick-up is from the parking lot behind St. Cecilia Hall.  Aftercare students will be walked back to aftercare at 4:20 p.m.  Classes begin on Tuesday, August 27.
Private Lessons in guitar and violin are available. Contact Michelle Nelson (253) 691-3912 for information.
