Campfire Guitar

Learn how to strum and sing along to your favourite songs with Renée Coghill. Campfire Guitar Beginners will introduce adult students to their first chords, singing while playing, and tuning their instrument all in a fun and supportive environment. Campfire Guitar Intermediate is for anyone with basic knowledge of major/minor chords or equivalent experience such as taking Campfire Guitar Beginners (formerly Campfire Guitar Level 1).


An introduction to Hawaii’s small but mighty guitar-like musical instrument, students will learn to strum, chord and accompany songs. Our Ukulele for Seniors course is led at a slower pace than our Campfire Guitar. Even if you are not a senior and would appreciate a slower paced course, all adults regardless of age are welcome to join! In our Ukulele Family Program, the whole family can join and learn to play ukulele! A child (ages 8+) and an adult caregiver (a parent, grandparent, sibling, or other adult ages 18+) must be enrolled in the program together. Both classes typically play folk, traditional, jazz, and 50's/60's rock music. Our ukulele programs are led by Gary Barbero.
