These one-on-one sessions are an hour long, with 30 minutes dedicated to learning technique and the other 30 minutes practicing technique--talk about hands-on learning! Any evening Monday through Friday (except Wednesdays) from 4:00p - 7:00p, Kevin's guitar lessons are for any experience level, too, so don't feel like you need to have prior knowledge to sign up!

Nervous to start playing? Let Kevin share his talent and knowledge to improve your confidence. Before you know it, you'll be the family member picking up the guitar to pick a song at the next bonfire!

In this class, Sarah will introduce young students to the joys of music making and creativity through singing, movement games, and improvising on instruments. Students will have fun as they listen to and "show" the patterns with their voices and bodies. By doing so, they will begin to internalize beat, as well as rhythmic and melodic patterns. Students will also spend time acting out stories and sight words, taking turns listening, watching others, and actively engaging. The classes are also a great way to develop fine motor, verbal, and literacy skills, as well as confidence!
