Guitarists of all standards from beginner to experienced are welcome at our area guitar ensembles, playing classical (nylon string) or steel-string acoustic guitars, electric guitars or bass guitars. If you're a guitarist aged eight to eighteen who would like to have fun playing music with others, we'd love to have you join us!

You don't need to be able to read music and our guitar ensembles play a wide range of musical styles including current pop music, rock classics; flamenco; blues, classical and more.
