« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Join Jerad in Cabrillo’s state-of-the-art music education building for a week of building basic guitar skills and learning creative collaboration. The week starts with an introduction to chords, melody, and learning notes on the guitar strings. You will learn to play traditional as well as popular songs with a focus on reading music using guitar tablature and standard notation. You will explore rhythm and strumming patterns while learning to play with other musicians through group interaction. This camp is a great community environment to be creative, learn the guitar, play songs, make new friends, and gain an appreciation for music.

No experience necessary! Guitars are provided, or you may bring your own.

Before bringing your child to camp, please read through this list. Following these steps will help us assure that your child is safe, healthy, and has tons of fun at camp!
  • Always send your child with a snack and a drink. Food = mood, and we want campers to be at their best! No food is available on campus.
  • Please be sure you have notified us of any behavioral or medical conditions we need to be aware of to help your child have a successful week at camp.
  • Campers need to be signed out every day by the individuals who have been approved by parent or legal guardian to pick them up, and are required to show a photo ID every day.
  • In order to protect the privacy and security of all minors on our campus, photographs by parents and family members in class are not permitted. Instructors and Extension staff often take photos and may share them with campers’ families via email once camp has concluded. Campers’ name tags will be removed for these photographs to respect and protect privacy. Please contact the Extension office directly if you do not want your child to be included in any photographs taken by our staff.
