We are very excited to announce that drum lessons are starting at the Shed! Zack Albetta will be teaching drums to students ages 8 and up. Lessons are available in 30 or 60 min time slots on Tuesdays starting June 6th.

This has been in the works for a while and now that our remodeling and soundproofing is complete, we are ready to start making some noise. Times are filling up, so register today to guarantee your spot.

Jaminals!

We are very excited to announce that you can now signup for Jaminals! Our teachers are on a first name basis here at the Shed, but when I am teaching little guys they refer to me as Mr. Parker.

Before opening Guitar Shed, I taught hundreds of preschoolers music in a school setting. I have always wanted to have my very own early childhood music class and Jaminals is finally here! Jaminals is a group early childhood music class for ages 2-6.

The classes will focus on movement, ear training, instrument exposure and fun with Mr. Parker! This is not a mommy+me class in that adults are not required to be in our “circle.” However, a parent is required to be at the Shed for the duration of the class.

Classes are from 9:30-10:00 am on the following dates and you can register here. Just select “Jaminals” in the instrument field.

7/13, 7/20, 7/27, 8/3

Pricing: One time $25 registration fee + $16 / class
