Year-round, hours vary
Taught by Brandon Dyke, the Mauldin Cultural Center hosts a wide-range of classes, including guitar ensemble, rock improvising, and music theory. You can also bring a friend or family member and take paired guitar lessons, which continue to offer more individualized attention than a larger class would, but can add extra fun and motivation as you learn along with someone else. Brandon offers both group and private lessons.
