"Learn to Play Guitar in a Day!" is a one day workshop for busy adults that would like to play guitar but don’t have time for weekly lessons. Students will learn basic chords, simple strumming and picking patterns, play familiar songs, tuning techniques, guitar care, music theory, music resources, tablature, performance skills and more. Students provide their own acoustic guitar. By the end of the workshop attendees will be able to play songs, care for their guitar and understand guitar music and guitar music resources.
