KUNG FU
GROUP GUITAR

Kung Fu essentially means “mastery through time and effort”. In Kung Fu Group Guitar classes you will master the art of music and how to fully apply that to the guitar. You will feel confident and creative while working your way up the colored strap system. In Kung Fu and other martial arts, you earn your colored “belt” as you improve. In Kung Fu Guitar Lessons, you earn a colored strap! This represents your skill level in the Kung Fu Guitar curriculum. The idea of becoming Kung Fu Music Master is that you can eventually play any style of music with anyone, anywhere in the world. Whether you are a complete beginner or a performing professional, Kung Fu Guitar Lessons will help you become a true music master with “time and effort”.
