Guitar Collective Fall Membership

A membership to the guitar collective will provide the student with individual instruction in classical guitar in a group setting. The student can attend any of the 12 open class hours a week, and they can attend as many as they would like. You book your times right through our app! See class times.

 

The student is able to learn at their own pace while also having the opportunity to work on their individual skills in a group setting. The teacher provides individual instruction to each student and also provides time for them to practice while they help the other students.

 

They will be able to play a piece in the recital by the end of the Fall regardless of their starting level.

Who are these lessons open to? 

Ages 8 and up! - We ask that parents stay with their children during the lesson if they are under 12 years old. We may accept younger students if they are developmentally ready. 

What will beginner students be learning? 

  • Intro to classical guitar and reading music 

  • Basic music theory & rhythms

  • How to tune a guitar 

  • How to restring a guitar

  • Guitar technique

  • How to play with a metronome ​

Do you have any plans for multiple students in the same family? 

Yes! We offer a special family membership that allows for up to 4 people in the same family to attend these lessons. 

How much does the Fall session membership cost? 

Single Student- $25 a week (or if you pay all at once you save $37.50 - $337.50 for the 15 weeks)
