Item Description

Bari Zwirn is a self taught guitarist who especially enjoys teaching beginning musicians. Whether you're a young child who has never played before, or an adult who just wants to play camp fire "sing alongs", Bari is comfortable helping you coordinate strumming, chording and singing. Focus will be on keeping rhythm, finding your vocal key, and becoming comfortable with simple styles of playing. Theory and tablature are touched on but not emphasized.

When not teaching guitar, Bari is a classroom teacher. She also plays and sings in a local folk/pop group and helps to host a weekly open mic, currently held in Rancho San Diego on Thursday nights.

Lessons will be given at New Expression Music.

This daily integration of music with academic learning provides positive, inspiring musical access for all students as part of the regular school day.
