Acoustic Guitar - Beginning
This is a basic course for students who have never played a guitar before. A guitar and a desire to learn to play are the only requirements. The emphasis of the class will be on playing the guitar and having fun. Basic chords will be stressed so that students can progress at their own rate. Students should bring their own guitar.

Acoustic Guitar - Intermediate
The Intermediate Guitar class is designed for anyone who currently plays the guitar and would like to improve. The class covers a variety of material designed to help the average guitarist become a more knowledgeable and advanced player. Topics include: Technique, theory, fingerpicking, and better chordal and single string understanding. An assortment of songs and styles will also be covered. Students should bring their own guitar.

Wine Tasting

In our wine tasting class, participants are exposed to a wide range of wines and learn how to compliment them with food. The curriculum touches on the process of wine making (growing and purchasing of grapes, choosing equipment, fermenting, bottling and storing) as well as explains the many health benefits of wine.
