Seattle Circle Guitar School to present a 1-week summer program for middle school students

Seattle Circle Guitar School will be presenting a one-week intensive immersion class at Billings Middle School (Greenlake), open to players at all experience levels. Rather than say “Go practice!” we say “Go start a band!” The class will be conducted by a team of teachers from the Seattle Circle Guitar School, allowing us to learn songs, write and rehearse music, play together, and perform, whether we can play one note or hundreds. Grounded in the tradition of Guitar Craft, the SCGS staff has 25 years of experience working with what it takes for a group of guitarists to come together and make music. All work will be done on steel-stringed acoustic guitars.

You do not have to be a Billings student to take part. For details and registration info, contact the Billings Middle School Summer Program.
