Leon offers four levels of year-long class instruction to over 165 students annually. Classes are currently taught by Ed Prasse and Mike Wendeln. Guitar I welcomes all students regardless of previous musical experience. The first week content includes sitting/hand position, learning the D, G and A7 chords, and strumming songs. The Guitar II curriculum presents advancing performance techniques in areas of fingerpicking, string bending, upper position note reading and improvisation. Guitar III/IV executes a performance-based curriculum representing our philosophy of accepting a broad range of styles/genres of music. Technique development, theory and instruction is presented in order to play pieces in Classical, Rock, Jazz, Bluegrass, and Pop styles.
