BEGINNING GROUP GUITAR
A fun and low pressure environment is the best way to get started on the guitar. Harley Cullen will help you jump-start your playing while helping you avoid the common pitfalls that “internet education” can lead to. Students will learn chords and strumming patterns to popular songs and basic guitar theory, so you’ll be well positioned to keep growing as a musician once the class is over.
BEGINNING GROUP UKULELE
Ukulele has risen in popularity over the last few years, and it’s easy to see why. This instrument is compact, bouncy and easy to play. But don’t let the initial simplicity fool you: this instrument can be taken to very exciting musical places. Ukulele teacher Lindy Campbell creates an extremely warm and positive environment in which to get started. You will learn chords and strumming patterns to popular songs. Come see what all the fuss is about!
BEGINNING GROUP BANJO

Music on the Hill’s preschool ukulele class is designed for young children who love music, but aren’t quite ready for private lessons yet.
