Judith Kay helps students from ages 8 to 80 play the guitar and sing the music that they want to do. She encourages them to develop strong musicianship skills and learn music theory, so that eventually they can become their own teachers. The semi-annual Repertoire Class gives students a chance to meet, hear and learn from each other and special guest artists. Everyone loves it!
Advanced Players, Please Note:
Judith Kay is an expert in teaching jazz inversions, chord‑melody playing, and authentic bossa nova rhythms.
