Guitar Classes at Highlandtown #237

Guitar Classes at Highlandtown #237

55 guitars strumming on S. Eaton Avenue. Guitar classes, using the Suzuki Method, premiered at Highlandtown #237 this Spring. Presented by the Baltimore Talent Education Center, children as young as five years old on up to Grade 8 were welcomed to the Introduction to Guitar Classes. Students meet weekly after school. Parental involvement is strongly encouraged; most parents find themselves learning right along with their children, developing satisfying musical skills of their own. By introducing guitar, Highlandtown music teacher Jill Warzer and BTEC hope to add other instruments for classes next semester. Beyond the energy of the lessons, the Guitar classes are helping to develop a fresher approach to guitar instruction to include other cultural influences. Recent Portland transplant, guitarist and artist Jacob Elias is in charge of this curriculum shifts. www.baltimoresuzuki.com
