Asheville Guitar Club announces 12-week fall course

The Asheville Guitar Club and Music Academy of Asheville launch a 12-week guitar course for three different age groups, starting Monday, Sept. 21.

Press release from event organizers:

The Music Academy of Asheville is continuing to host Asheville’s unique group guitar program, The Asheville Guitar Club. The AGC fall semester course is open to all those interested in learning or expanding their knowledge of the guitar. The weekly course will begin September 21 and runs through December 14.

The Asheville Guitar Club’s unique and fun guitar classes are aimed at shaping its participants into confidant players who are able to take their love of the guitar to a higher level. All are welcome, from ages 6 to 100, beginners through advanced players. These group-based classes allow students of all styles to work with their peers under the guide of experienced instructors as they explore techniques that will allow them to better play the music they love and expand their knowledge of music theory to better use their musical language.

Led by Music Academy faculty member Tim Doyle, these classes have been designed over the past four years and are influenced by Tim’s training with the Suzuki Guitar method, time spent working with Robert Fripp and the Guitar Craft and Guitar Circles, and his 25 years of experience as a student, teacher, performer, and composer of the guitar.

The AGC Fall Course Schedule:
• Ages 6-8 Mondays 4:00-5:15pm
• Ages 9-12 Mondays 5:30-6:45pm
• Ages 13-adult Tuesdays 6:30-7:45pm

Come join a community of like-minded guitarists as we improve what we love to do – play guitar!
