program Description

Elemental Guitar is our guitar program, featuring Intro Guitar for beginning guitarists and Elemental Guitar ensemble for intermediate levels.

Students in grades 3 and up are eligible to participate in either of our two Elemental Guitar ensembles. The joys of making music with friends is available to young guitarists, too! Budding musicians with no prior experience can sign up for our Intro Guitar ensemble - no audition required - and guitarists with playing experience can audition for placement into our intermediate ensemble.

Classes are designed to give each student a solid foundation in classical guitar technique, musicianship, and ensemble playing. This is a unique opportunity for young guitarists to collaborate, come together, and learn fun music with our amazing staff.

Please contact Program Director Mak Grgic for information about these ensembles.

“Elemental Guitar fueled my son’s love of playing, improved his practice skills, taught him how to play in a group, and exposed him to some remarkable musicians.”
