Guitar classes are a great way to learn to play guitar! The Mojo School of Music has been teaching guitar classes to members of the Bellingham Community for over six years. Since then, hundreds of students have strummed their first chords with us. Each class runs for six weeks, and teaches the absolute rudiments of the guitar.

Please note that guitar classes are designed for the absolute beginning student. If you have played guitar previously, or if you can already strum a "C" chord, then you might consider furthering your skills with private instruction instead.
