Yes, I Have Thought About That....Often

Ever thought about picking up and learning how to play the guitar?

Guitar Acadiana and the Acadiana Center for the Arts have teamed up to offer a six-week course that will teach you the basics of guitar with two local guitar instructors - Tim Benson and Jim McGee.

You will learn fundamental techniques, how to properly tune your guitar, the most common chords found in popular music, the necessary scales to start playing leads and much more.

Classes are fun and structured to maximize your learning while applying all the covered techniques to some of your favorite songs. You can sign up even if you have never played a guitar before!

Each student who registers is required to bring a guitar to the classes. All lesson materials, audio samples, workbooks, etc, will be provided at the class.

Classes begin on Saturday, March 13th and will continue each Saturday afterward until April 17th. Sessions are one hour long (youth class is 45 minutes) and for the last class there will be a reception in the AcA's Art House.
