  • Community Events

    From our free Intro to Guitar classes, to our Fearless Performance Workshop, to our exhibit openings in the Upstairs Art Space, there is sure to be an opportunity for you to visit our studio soon.

  • Guitar Maintenance

    Got an old guitar sitting around collecting dust? Thinking about picking it up? For $25 we’ll sit down together to inspect and restring your instrument (strings included). If it’s in good working order Chris will show you how to restring and tune it.
