Guitar is one of the most interesting and versatile instrument ever created. I truly believe that because it can be used to perform as a lead, can be used in a band, can be used as an accompaniment, multiple genres can be played on the instrument from basic Happy birthday to western pop, western classical to hindustani ragas or carnatic music. Apart from the above, even the basic knowledge of the instrument sometimes is enough to create music!!!

My classes are specifically designed for adults for them to start physically playing the instrument fast. We do this by learning skills and then applying them for a song. Since adults have developed motor skills compared to kids, it is relatively easier for them to get acclimatize with the instrument.

Duration of the class: 60min

Starting date: 1 April 2024 

Frequency: Once a week

Timings: Flexible(subject to agreement of all the students in the batch)

Class type: Solo class
