Guitar Basics Workshop

Daniel Magnolia is taking a hiatus from teaching, but you can contact him for referrals. Please check back for future updates and brief video lessons.


Have you ever thought about how cool it would be to learn to play the guitar?

The Guitar Basics Workshop has been designed from the ground up to meet the needs of beginner students who learn better in a group environment.

You and five friends (or soon-to-be friends) will meet for 60-minutes every week for six intensive weeks of guitar and music training. The small class size allows for an interactive, fun and cost effective opportunity to learn the basics of the guitar. No prior experience is necessary, but you will need your own guitar.*

The cost per student is less than that of regular private lessons usually cost. And for some being in a group of your peers accelerates the learning process.
