Dan Bailey is eager to share his craft with anyone wanting to learn guitar through a series of introductory group classes at School of Harmony in Beaver, beginning Jan. 9, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

“I taught many students through the years, as many as 55 to 60 people per week. I’d say 40 percent were adults,” Bailey reveals, adding that group lessons like his endeavor at School of Harmony are often less intimidating to beginners than one-on-one lessons.

“In a group setting, you don’t feel like all of the attention is on you.” From those who participate, Bailey estimates 50 to 60 percent will go on to continue lessons. “This is a good way to wade into the waters without jumping.”

In addition to desire, all you need, says Bailey, is a guitar that’s “pretty easy to play.”

The cost for the six-week course is $150 and space is limited. Call School of Harmony at 304-253-3095 or visit www.schoolofharmony.com for more information.
