Hagerstown Community College’s Center for Continuing Education offers a unique setting for learning guitar. A group class is starting September 12 for absolute beginners. This course is open to adults and children 11 years and older, so parents and children could learn to play the instrument together in a low pressure, slow-paced environment.
Instructor Candice Mowbray will teach students the fundamentals of basic guitar performance including chords, strumming, finger picking, and note reading. Students need to bring a guitar (acoustic preferred), pick and music stand.
The group will meet Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. through Oct. 17.
Registration is available by phone at 301-790-2800, ext. 236, in person at the HCC Valley Mall Center or main campus, or by visiting www.hagerstowncc.edu .
