Since 1971, Blue Bear School of Music in Fort Mason has taught more than 20,000 students how to play instruments and how to sing. There is also a special "Little Bear" section just for kids. Whether you're an adult or a child, Blue Bear is a great way to learn an instrument at an affordable price, through group or private lessons.
I've been learning guitar since January 2008, and have thoroughly enjoyed the classes. For $200, I get ten group lessons over a semester, and have learned everything from finger picking to advanced chord playing from my teacher, Janak Ramachandran. The group of four in my class is a lot of fun.
Signup for the Fall semester starts on September 2nd, and the classes kick off on September 29th. Check out the group class schedule, and see what might work for you or your kids!
