Yes it's true...you'll learn to play in just one day! "Learn to Play Guitar in a Day!" is a one day workshop created to meet the needs of busy adults. Many adults want to learn to play guitar, but simply do not have time for weekly lessons. This unique workshop is filled with skills and information that are equivalent to 6 weekly lessons.

Students learn basic chords, strumming and picking patterns, play familiar songs, tuning techniques, tablature, guitar care, simple music theory, music resources, performance skills and more! The workshop includes the Learn to Play Guitar in a Day! book and an electronic tuner.
