Guitar Lessons
Tutor: Jared Sells
Length: Semester class Class Period: Wednesday, period TBD with students

Description: Private lessons allow us to contextualize our learning approach to each student’s goals and needs. We will learn notes, scales, chords, songs, and music theory, but also how to listen, speak, and share something with those around us.

Tuition Note:  There will be three 30-minute lessons scheduled during each period. The tuition for each 30-minute lesson is $29. The semester total of $435 can be paid with a single check, or a set of 4 checks.  Parents wishing to pay in installments must send in checks for $60 ($70 for later registrations), and 3 checks for $125.  The first check will be cashed right away, and the remaining checks should be post-dated and will be cashed on weeks 1, 5, and 10.

Scheduling Note:  All students wishing to register for guitar lessons must contact Jared directly to schedule a time slot. After he confirms a lesson time, students should also then fill out the registration form for Wednesday.
