Have fun acquiring a basic understanding of music while learning to play a most delightful musical instrument – the guitar – in noncredit Northland Pioneer College classes in Show Low starting August 21.

Whether an afterschool activity for youth ages 6 to 16, or adults wanting to expand their musical knowledge, Dennis Kemp’s Basic Music and Guitar classes meet for 23 90-minute sessions for just $150. The class (reference MUS 099x-56) meets on Mondays and Thursdays, August 21 through November 9, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Students must provide their own guitar, or can rent one for a refundable $35 deposit plus $1 a week paid directly to the instructor. The class will not meet on Labor Day, September 4.

Instructor Dennis Kemp is a multiple genre guitarist, from Bluegrass to Rock & Roll, Country Western to Mariachi. As a teen, he started his own rock & roll garage band, The Playboys, performing throughout his native Minnesota. More recently he played with Strings & Things, based at the Happy Trails Resort in Surprise, AZ, and at the annual international Mariachi Festivals in Rosarito, Mexico.

Sign up for the Basic Music and Guitar classes at least three days before the class starts to ensure it is not canceled due to insufficient enrollment. Register at any NPC location during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays.
