Beginning Guitar (Begins at 11:00 A.M.)

Do you think the guitar may be right for you? Enroll in our Beginning Guitar Class and find out! Beginning Guitar is a course designed to introduce basic guitar playing to beginners, with no previous music study needed. Emphasis is placed on learning guitar skills through playing classic pop songs. Essential guitar skills and basic note-reading are taught in a fun, supportive setting that allows students to develop at their own pace. Classes are formed by age group, and class materials are flexible to accommodate the interests of each class group.

This class is designed to introduce young beginning singers, with no previous experience, to various
basics skills of healthy vocal production through the teaching of diverse songs from all cultures. We
will learn through the oral tradition of paperless singing as well as learn some basics about how to read
music.

Cultures throughout the world sing and play hand drums to bring their community together as one.
Learn how to play the basic drum tones on your hand drum while staying relaxed and at ease. This
class is geared towards those who have little or no prior drumming experience, but can also easily
accommodate intermediate players. For the warm-up we cover the basics such as holding and striking
a drum and basic coordination drills. After that we will learn and play the rhythms listed on the class
handout.

Beginning Violin (TBD)

If your child has expressed curiosity in learning violin, this class is perfect for them! This small, engaging group will allow your child to discover the excitement of violin playing. Students will learn the basics of violin playing and musical literacy. Beginner students will start with fundamentals such as learning the parts of the violin, bowing and proper finger placement all while learning fun songs. BCAC Mentors will help students discover their potential of producing a good, controlled, solid sound of the violin and will instruct in a very understandable way so that learning will be enjoyable. Their learning will culminate in a final performance for family and friends to attend at the final session.
