Why: Because it’s fun and easy, inexpensive, rewarding, and good for your creaky senior joints and brain too.

Hello to all students both former and future. I’m back for my third year of classes here in SaddleBrooke. This year, in order to better serve everyone who wants to participate, I will be trying a new innovation: rolling classes. This means that once four students sign up for any classes, we will begin. If others express interest later, I will simply start another section. Thus, if you and three of your friends wish, you can book your own class, starting and ending when you wish, setting your own curriculum and pace. If there are enough students to have more than one section of any class, it will allow for students to attend a “make-up” class if one has to miss a class.

Remember: You do not need to have any prior experience for any of the beginner classes, nor need to read music. Only guitar and ukulele students will have to bring instruments. In order to sign up, or for any further information or help finding a guitar or ukulele, call me, Ted Windham-Crowley, at 925-676-8558 or email me at [email protected]
