Guitar Classes

  • Spring 2021 COVID-19 Pandemic Update

    The Adult Guitar I class will not be meeting this spring due to health concerns and limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Given the likelihood of a vaccinated public over the next several months, we are optimistic that it will be offered again for the fall 2021 semester.

    However, registration for both online and in-person private lessons is currently OPEN and will be ongoing and rolling throughout the semester. For more information on lessons, please see the Private Lessons page.

    For additional information from the IUP Community Music School, please see the IUPCMS home page, and for more information from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, please see the comprehensive Coronavirus Information page.
