Discover Guitar follows in the footsteps of our amazing Discover Series by presenting the process of learning the guitar and expanding it in ways and directions that makes it accessible to everyone. We start by teaching students how to think about their instrument (the how and why it works), how to apply techniques (the reasons why we use them), and that’s just the beginning.
Our program focuses around learning repertoire that develops individual skills, as well as performing in a group. Students learn how to play melodies (picking), and move on to playing chords (strumming).
Our goal is to teach basic skills and techniques, focusing on developing listening, with emphasis on showing participants how to work together democratically, building upon ideas of collaboration.
