 Carol McComb’s Summer 2021 Guitar Classes


Our classes will be meeting live via Zoom, and I’ll also videotape each class, in case you can’t tune in at the scheduled time. You MUST pre-register to participate, because I’ll need to send you the link for your class in addition to PDF’s of the handouts each week. 

Hope to see you soon!
