Class Information

Welcome to OHS Guitar Studio!
Guitar Studio is a semester-long class that is open to all students in grades 9-12.  It is designed for students who do not have any previous playing experience on the guitar and are looking to gain the basic skills behind proper guitar playing.  *No prior musical background is necessary!*  During the course, students will learn both the melodic side of the guitar, as well as how to use the guitar as an accompaniment instrument.  They will learn how to read and play standard notation and tablature in first position, how to strum in several different styles, and how to play many standard chord progressions.  Students will also gain knowledge in music history and basic music theory in order to enhance their guitar playing skills.
