Guitar for Beginners — Part-time
The focus of this course is to learn to play the acoustic guitar.
The course is designed to allow absolute beginners to learn how to play the guitar in a group setting.
Each week we will aim to learn 2 chords and play a simple song using these chords. You will learn basic strumming patterns, all of the open chords and build up a repertoire of easy to play songs from various music genres.
