It’s Girl from Ipanema week. Come get devastated by beauty walking right past us this week.

Come Play with Us

Join our email list to stay up to date

You’ll get the news, you’ll get free sheet music, you’ll get inspired. And if you ever decide playing bagpipes makes more sense, it’ll be easy to unsubscribe.

We’re not meeting face to face until further notice, but you can still learn to play fingerstyle and classical guitar. Join us online.

For now, we’re gonna use YouTube to rawk. Go grab your instrument, download the assignment, and be ready five minutes before class to log on and join us live. Lessons last about a half hour. For those who can’t attend live sessions, I post the video recordings on my YouTube channel. Questions or private online lessons? Email me.

If you want to try playing ukulele, go here for that schedule of classes.

If you’re working on ANY level, or want to develop a program tailored to you, now would be a great time to set up some online private lessons. Right?! Email me for details.

How We WorK In Normal Times …

We began growing a city-wide orchestra on November 11, 2017, with guitarists who understand teamwork. It’s fun and you’ll improve your skills at a much faster pace than working alone. We know two things all accomplished players do … they practice (some more than others) and they show up to rehearsal. If you’re willing to do those two things, you should get in touch with us no matter your current skill level.

We think it’s wise for you to look at our Classes and Certification page prior to joining the full ensemble. Email us today and we’ll get you started: info@denverguitarorchestra.com

If you are studying with a guitar teacher, ask them to contact us so we can give them the certification materials and you can prepare with them.

Who should probably not look into joining us: If you want nothing to do with sheet music, or if you need to be the center of attention, or if you only want to play one type of song or from one specific genre then you probably have better options in Denver and we encourage you to seek those alternatives out.

Please call or text 303-984-0777 and we’ll get you up and running.

Our Mission: The Denver Guitar Orchestra supports community members of all ages and skill levels willing to practice, rehearse, and work as a team in a community orchestra education program to develop music from all eras and styles for presentation on the acoustic guitar.
