Music & Arts has invited all students, parents, and educators to attend their Open House weekend (June 22 to 24) for complimentary guitar lessons and live music, and a free guitar offer at all locations that offer musical instrument lessons. 

Special on-site programs and deals will be offered at each location during the event.
All weekend, visitors can take tours of the lesson studios and consult with Music & Arts’ university-trained, background-checked lesson instructors. Those who enroll in a month of guitar lessons will receive a free Laurel Canyon full-size or ¾ size guitar, or ukulele, while supplies last.

On Friday, June 22 from 6p.m. to 8 p.m., musicians will have the opportunity to perform as a soloist or band—or to watch local favorites—during the “Take the Stage” open mic night. 

On Saturday, June 23, at 11a.m. and 1p.m. the stores will offer two free “Pointers-4-Players” classes to guide beginner guitar players through the first steps of learning guitar, as taught by a professional instructor. Attendees can borrow a guitar at no charge for the class.

Find a convenient location and RSVP for free online here.
