Question from Virginia E.
Hello, I just signed up for a beginner guitar course and realized that I won’t be able to make the first class. My question is: should I cancel all of the sessions and try to find a better fit? Or is it possible to sit in on another *first* class to make it up? Thank you for your time! Warmly Virginia

I really enjoyed the class and always wanted to learn how to play, but found it difficult to start on my own. I am truly an absolute beginner, and it was nice to take a class with peers that were at the same level. If you’ve always dreamed of playing guitar, I would recommend this class to turn the dream into reality. With a little commitment, it’s not as hard as you would think. Have fun!
