Guitarist Meet-up

As extension of our Campfire Guitar program (on hold until in person classes can resume), this is for beginner to advanced guitarists interested in learning more about guitar technique and theory with our guitar instructor Renée Coghill. Come connect with other players and share in our guitar community. Sessions are available once a month and you can join for just one month or come to them all. These are one time courses, so, registration in previous sessions is not required in order to join the next upcoming session.

Harp

In Build Your Own Harp, you will spend a weekend building a wooden harp from a kit. This workshop is led by our harp instructor Cécile Denis. You can follow-up this workshop by registering in Private Lessons with Cécile to learn more about your new instrument.

Ukulele

An introduction to Hawaii’s small but mighty guitar-like musical instrument, students will learn to strum, chord and accompany songs. Level 2 continues to build skills learned in Level 1
