Have you ever wanted to play guitar? Bruce will be teaching semi-private lessons this semester. His focus will be on proper hand technique (left and right), learning the fingerboard, note quality (birth-breath-finish), basic music theory, and understanding how this stuff fits together. We will be covering scales (diatonic major and minor, blues scale et.) simple tunes, and how to build songs out of these scale lessons. Limit 2 students per session (2 sessions) Series of 8 classes. If you do not have your own guitar, York County Community College has a few for rent for $25 for an 8-week class.

Bruce Bjork has been playing guitar for more than 55 years, banjo, dobro for more than 30 years, and pedal steel since 2017. He hosts an open mic at SoMe Brewery in York and has been teaching guitar since 2015 as part of the Guitars4Vets program; music therapy for combat veterans. This will be his third semester at South Coast Senior College.
