Guitar Classes

Spring Registration Now Open!

April 19 – June 11, 2021

Learn to play guitar in a fun and relaxed environment. We are going to meet via Zoom. I supplement our lessons using a google classroom with videos, source recordings, and chord charts.

“Maggie really was able to break down the art of making music in a way that made it feel accessible… and it was great of course to learn songs that my little one could enjoy.”


“I love your class, your enthusiasm, and doubtless love of music and the teaching of it.”


Intro to Guitar Continuing

Wednesdays 7:30pm (April 21 – June 9)

Fridays at 1pm (April 23 – June 11)

If you have taken my Intro class or you know only a few chords such as A, D, E, and G and you are just beginning to be comfortable strumming while playing chords at the same time, this class is for you! If you are interested in taking a guitar from scratch class over zoom this spring, please email me. We will find a time for a semi private or small group lesson (around a lunch hour on a weekday or perhaps in the afternoon on Weds or Thursday).

Guitar Beginner 1

Wednesday 6:30pm (April 21 – June 9)

We have learned several open first position chords and we can strum and play a few songs. We will build on our first position chords so that we can play 3 and 4 chord songs in several keys. If you have not taken my Intro to guitar class but want to jump in with us here, please reach out and we’ll see if you are a good fit.

Guitar Beginner 2

Mondays 7pm (April 19 – June 7)

Students at this level can play all of the open/first position chords including F. We know the basic “boom-chuck” or bass note – after strum technique. We have been enjoying working on some basic fingerpicking techniques and worked on Landslide during the winter session.

Guitar Beginner 3

Mondays 8pm (April 19 – June 7)

Beginner to intermediate songs with more challenging techniques: fingerpicking, some bar chords, tricky rhythms, and lead lines.
