Welcome to the Friendly School of Folk Music

Upcoming Sessions

Group Guitar Lessons begin on Monday, January 8th.  Group lessons are great way to learn, you get to enjoy the comaraderie of music with people who are just as excited to learn as you are.  Our instructors are friendly, professional giggin muscians who enjoy sharing music.  In addition to learning how to hum and strum, you'll learn problem solving and lifelong coping skills.  Sessions are eight (8) weeks long.  Sign up with a friend or fly solo and meet new friends in class.  We've got classes for 7-10 year olds, 11-14 year olds and adult learners.
