Stamford Library to Host Classical Guitar Workshop Series

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 2/8/24 | 2/8/24

STAMFORD - Stamford Library is excited to announce an upcoming classical guitar workshop series with local guitarist and musician Drew Azzinaro! The 10-week ‘Guitar in the Mountains’ series will begin on Monday, February 26 from 4 to 5 p.m. and classes will continue every Monday at Stamford Library from 4 to 5 p.m. 

Whether those interested have been playing for years and want to increase their guitar skills and knowledge while having a chance to play with others or they are a complete beginner, this guitar class is for them!

During this 10-week series, participants will learn the fundamentals of finger-picking and flat-picking, increase their chord and scale vocabulary, improve their rhythm, and learn to improvise, all while performing fun blues pieces, classic rock pieces, classical pieces, and more!

Every student will have parts created for their skill level, specifically designed to help them learn and grow. Participants will make music during every class and the series will culminate in a showcase concert performance!

Classes are FREE and open to those ages 6 and up. Adults are also welcome and encouraged to take part. Participants will need to provide their own acoustic guitars with nylon or steel strings.

Space is limited and pre-registration is strongly encouraged by stopping in the library or by calling 607.652.5001. Stamford Library is located at 117 Main Street in the village of Stamford. For more information, visit their website at

This program is an applicant for the Delaware County Arts Grants, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered in Delaware County by the Roxbury Arts Group.
