Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Take your guitar strumming to the next level. Rock is full of iconic acoustic guitar riffs that YOU CAN PLAY! Kendall will help you transform the strumming basics into tasty grooves you can use to get your kids’ creative juices flowing. In this workshop, you will: learn to play loud and proud, get the lowdown on how to “cheat” at chords, transcribe strumming patterns, be your own drummer and bass player without looking like Burt from Mary Poppins and leave with all the tolls you need to sound like an acoustic guitar DEMIGOD. This is meant for more advanced guitar noobies. You will have more fun if you can move between first position chords reasonably quickly however, anyone interested in learning teaching methods that help students put the drive in a song using only wood and steel is welcome.
