Guitar Strap Program
Bentley and Romito have drafted a guitar program to lead beginner guitarists to become complete guitar players. The program focuses on rhythm playing, reading music, improvisation and ear training while touching on the many intricacies of playing the guitar. Students are given a white guitar strap when then begin their studies, and move up through various colors until they earn the black guitar strap. At certain points, students will test before their teachings to prove that they are ready to move up to the next strap level. Graduation recitals will be held every four months to celebrate the students’ progress. Cost of the Guitar Strap Program is free.
