|Ready to unlock your inner Jimi Hendrix? The Fullerton Museum Center is offering young players an opportunity to learn guitar basics through its "Summer Guitar Camp" starting July 23. |
Guitar Camp is a one-week course (July 23-27) designed for beginning and intermediate players in fifth through ninth grades. Players will enjoy class and private guitar instruction dedicated to music history, theory, and appreciation. Guitars will be made available to students for class and at home use.
"Students will learn how to play folk, rock and blues songs on a Fender acoustic guitar," said Aimee Aul, education coordinator for the museum. "They will perform in an end-of-session concert, create original art, learn from special guest presenters and much more."
All classes will be held from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Fullerton Museum Center, 301 N. Pomona Ave., one block east of Harbor Boulevard, in downtown Fullerton.
The classes will be taught be Aul and guitar instructor Eric Ray.
Ray, who holds a master of music degree in classical guitar performance from the San Francisco Conservatory, teaches guitar and the history of rock and roll at Fullerton College. Equally at home in classical and popular music, he also performs and records with his alternative rock band, "All of Us None of Us."
Tuition for the class is $130 for museum members and $140 for the general public. Tuition includes lesson book, art materials, use of a Fender acoustic nylon string guitar, and a one-year family membership to the Fullerton Museum Center.
Registration and further information about Summer Guitar Camp may be obtained by calling the Fullerton Museum Center at (714) 738-6545.
Persons requiring special accommodations to participate in the classes are asked to notify the museum staff when registering.
