TMR’s kid’s guitar classes are designed to guide the student through basic and intermediate guitar technique and musicianship. Classes are structured across four progressive levels: Guitar 1, Guitar 2, Guitar 3 and Guitar Ensemble. Learn More

Kids Ukulele

Children easily adapt to the ukulele’s small neck and nylon strings, making this a good introductory instrument and class. Kids Ukulele 1 and 2 are offered, as well as Kid’s Ukestra, a class for students who have completed Ukulele 2.  Learn More

GarageBand Workshop

Learn how to play, record, edit and share your original music.  In this class students ages 13 and up will explore  the creative and technical features of GarageBand for iOS. All that is needed is an iPhone or iPad with the GarageBand application. It’s recommended that students bring Apple Earpods or compatible headphones for their iPhone or iPad. Students that are interested in recording electric guitar into GarageBand will require an iRig in order to plug directly into their iPhone or iPad.   Learn more

FREE Ukulele and Guitar Circles

Free Ukulele and Guitar Circles provide an opportunity for players of all ages to come together to play familiar, fun and favorite songs.  These sessions are not intended to instruct, they are to provide a platform for camaraderie in music.

Palatine Road, Palatine) Register here.
