Group classes at The Richardson School of Music are fun and exciting! They are an excellent way for Children, Teens and Adults to begin their musical training. These classes will focus on fundamentals, and will give students a supportive environment to blossom in their musical journey and also to be ready for the more intensive demand of private lessons. RSM classes will have a student/teacher ratio of 6/1 in most group classes —allowing for a significant amount of individual attention.
Parents often wonder if they should sign their child up for group lessons or private lessons! There truly is no right answer. Although many students, regardless of personality, do well in private lessons, some students learn better in a group setting. The social environment of group lessons just makes it a better fit for some!

PARENT/CHILD GROUP GUITAR
Learn with your child
This class is for parents who are interested in learning the guitar along with their child. As music educators we often hear parents say, “We can’t really help our child when they practice at home because we have no idea what they are doing!” Well, this is the next best thing besides taking lessons of your own! In this class parents will mainly work in a group as the children will also work in a group. On occasion parent and child will learn side by side. Theory, using computer software, is also a component of this class.
