Acoustic guitar

The acoustic guitar is a versatile instrument for, for example, pop, rock and folk. Our guitar course deals with different styles and playing techniques.

In our beginner course you get an introduction to the guitar as an instrument and we work with playing technique, basic chords and simple riffs. The course will give you what you need to get started with guitar playing and playing songs. Through exercises you learn to maneuver on the guitar neck and hit the right strings when you play. We also go through how to tune the guitar and start playing simple songs early, alone or together in the group. The course requires no prior knowledge and is for you who have not played before or played very little.

We have two type of courses: 
  • Youth course 12 to 16 years
  • Ordinary courses from 15 years- no no upper age limits.

Our courses focus the joy of playing music, as well as mastering the instrument on every step of the way. The teaching takes place in a safe environment, in groups of up to five participants. Large parts of the courses will be arranged according to the level of the participants.
