Guitar Centers in Dallas-Fort Worth will be offering free music lessons beginning December 27 as a part of their Music Mentor Series. The program, created and housed by Guitar Center, will begin with a series of free introductory guitar lessons aimed at those who just unwrapped their very first acoustic or electric axe, as well as the guitar-shy buyers who are finally ready to approach their instrument like a pro.
Through the launch of the new Music Mentor Series, Guitar Center is offering its customers, including budding acoustic and electric guitar players, the opportunity to participate in a series of free in-store guitar lessons. Each one-hour lesson will feature Guitar Center’s expert staff members demonstrating introductory guitar techniques including proper playing position, tuning, basic strumming, chords and instrument care. The first set of lessons begins on Thursday, Dec. 27th through Sunday, Dec. 30. All 240 Guitar Center stores will continue offering these introductory guitar lessons each Saturday throughout January 2013. The guitar lessons are all free to customers and aspiring guitar players who have purchased a new or used guitar at a Guitar Center store or GuitarCenter.com.
Classes will be available by registration online or in-store at all 240 Guitar Center locations nationwide – customers are encouraged to call or come in to their local Guitar Center with any questions. For Texas locations click on this list of all Texas Guitar Center stores.
