Small group guitar lessons with Amy Laber (Gardiner Library’s “Miss Amy”). Beginner guitar lessons for young children with a gentle, playful approach. We will learn the parts of a guitar, and explore basic musical concepts such as beat, rhythm and pitch. Students will approach learning individual notes on the guitar and simple chords.

Starting guitar lessons at an early age can help children to develop patience and self-confidence, improve coordination and concentration, learn a new skill, and make new friends!

It is recommended that students bring small three ring binder to organize handouts.

If you have any questions or would like to inquire about private lessons for beginner students, please contact Amy at amylaber@gmail.com.

Amy is a singer-songwriter, early childhood music specialist, and children’s librarian. With over 20 years of experience making music with young children, her approach is patient, caring, encouraging and fun!
