Beginner Classes

What is the difference between the levels of Beginner Classes at Girl Guitar? Great question! Everyone learns at a different pace and it's important to find the spot that's right for you. There is plenty of overlap between these classes, but here are a few specifics to help you out: 

Total Beginner: This class will cover how to tune, hold a pick, hold the guitar, and play 3-4 basic chords.

Beginner II: This class assumes you have some familiarity with G, C, D, A, E, am, and em and are comfortable holding a pick. You will dig deeper into strum patterns and songs with more chords than in Total Beginner. Beginner II is a great place to spend as many sessions as you need in order to log hours getting the basics under your belt!

Beginner III: This class will focus on ways to enhance basic chords and strum patterns and will gently introduce barre chords.
