GUITAR provides a vehicle for personal expression whilst at the same time developing fine motor skills and complex co-ordination. It promotes discipline, responsibility and commitment to working towards a goal. Above all else, guitar lessons will transmit a skill that can be shared with and appreciated by others. These classes are open to students aged 7 years up to adults.
