Interested in another instrument? We also offer Violin Friends and Piano Friends.

Students learn how to strum chords, pick melodies and produce a satisfying sound on the guitar. Intended for budding guitarists aged 5-6 years old, students learn how to position the guitar on their bodies and care for the instrument. They also learn songs that help demonstrate the mechanics of the guitar, such as tuning. Play-along tracks and practice videos keep students engaged all week long while the small class size ensures that each child receives some individual attention. Students interact with both standard notation and guitar tablature to learn chords and melodies in a variety of genres and styles. At the end of each semester, students perform in a group recital, building confidence and performance skills. *Students are required to purchase an appropriately sized acoustic guitar for this class. BKCM provides a starter guitar for students to use for their first two classes.
