Discover Guitar Center’s Variety of Classes and Workshops

Are you behind on your New Year’s resolution to improve your guitar chops? Or maybe you’ve dreamed of becoming a DJ or mastering audio engineering? Guitar Center at Public Market has a workshop or class for you.

For the aspiring but reluctant new musician, why not check out Guitar Center Emeryville’s Open House on Sunday, April 1st. At this event, the staff and instructors will be on hand to give free 10 minute lessons in Guitar Center’s high-quality facilities. The family friendly Open House is the first Sunday of each month from 1 PM to 4 PM. During open houses, Guitar Center waives registration fees for class sign-ups.

Additionally, Guitar Center at Public Market offers the following special workshops:

  • Senior Group Classes (FREE) every 1st Friday of the month, 10:30am-12pm.
  • Guitar for Kids (FREE) every 2nd Tuesday of the month, 6:30pm-8pm.
  • Women’s Guitar Night (a FREE jam night in GC’s rehearsal studios) – every 3rd Friday of the month, 7pm-9pm.

The low-pressure setting isn’t nearly as intimate as a lesson with a private instructor, but allows students to get their feet wet before deciding whether or not the guitar is for them. The age group for those attending free classes and open houses at Guitar Center is wide-ranging, from eight years old to 60+.

Guitar Center at Public Market is a great site to begin or brush up your music skills. With comfortable, sound-proof studios and professional instructors, the Emeryville location specializes in music lessons for adults.

Stop by the Guitar Center at Public Market today and ask an associate for more information. They’ll even take you on a tour of the store’s facilities. And finish your visit with a meal at our Food Hall!
