  • Guitar
  • Ukulele
  • General Music and Songwriting

Guitar and ukulele students will learn to play their instrument along with some basic music theory (through fun games with your duet partner).  You are required to bring your own instrument.  Decent ukulele packages (comes with bag, tuner, ukulele, etc.) can be purchased on amazon starting at $55.  Guitar recommendation can be made upon request.

General music and songwriting students will have fun playing games that teach basic music theory, share favorite music, and engage in songwriting activities.  $15 fee for a personalized kit with small percussion instruments and materials will be added to all general music and songwriting student packages.

All Summer Duet students will have the option to participate in our summer showcase in August (likely will be held virtually, but exact details TBD).

Lessons will take place in our tented studio with plenty of shade and space for social distancing.  SEC staff will wear masks, but masks are optional for students during lessons as long as they maintain 6 foot social distance at all times (tent will be clearly marked).  Students should be able to participate independently and adhere to social distancing practices.

COST: Determine with your duets partner how frequently you would like to participate in lessons.  Duets meet once or twice per week for 4-weeks.  You may choose to sign up for one or  two 4-week sessions.  Each student will register individually and indicate the name of their duets partner on the registration form, as well as preferred times for their lesson.  We will contact you to finalize a schedule that works for all parties.  50% of package cost is due at registration.  Final payment is due by week 2 of the 4-week session.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Please note, refunds will not be given for missed lessons, except for in the unlikely event that SEC cancels.  If SEC needs to cancel due to severe weather or teacher absence we will do our best to offer a make up lesson prior to offering a refund.  If it is known in advance that both students need to miss the same lesson, we will do our best to arrange for a make-up, but can not guarantee.

Music interventions may include, but are not limited to, singing, playing instruments, music and movement, guided listening, songwriting, and improvisation.  NO PREVIOUS MUSIC EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.
