The First Note
Rose City Guitar is a queer woman-owned guitar school focusing on community and collaborative-based education. RCGC specializes in various subgenres of rock, metal, Americana, and fingerstyle percussive guitar.
Here at RCGC, we continue to create a space where our students feel comfortable and motivated to progress in their craft. We will tackle a lot of subjects throughout the lessons ranging from discipline and inspiration to songwriting, music theory, and learning some of your favorite songs. We provide weekly lesson plans that students can take home to practice and review so that they are hungry for more when they come back to class.
Beyond Typical Guitar Lessons
When we first starting putting together our plans for a guitar school, one of the most important aspects of our vision was to provide more resources for learning, jamming, and building a community for our students. Learning in an ensemble format is extremely valuable and most schools simply do not provide this. In addition to lessons, we will be providing jam sessions, hosting open mics at local establishments, NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Badges for select students (18+ only) for January, and exclusive opportunity's to guitar-related events and concerts.
The Future Sounds Good
Our founders Samantha Russell and Amber Russell have years of experience with performing, touring, handling contracts, sponsorships and endorsements in the music industry, so they would like to do what they can to help our intermediate/master guitar level students learn how to get to that next step in their career depending on what their individual goals are.
We’d love to hear from you!
