ASHEBORO (Nov. 1, 2019)

Want to take your guitar game to the next level?

Randolph Community College is offering “Guitar 2,” beginning Wednesday, Nov. 6, and taught by professional musician Walter Matthew Hoover.

Hoover, who has taught for the past 30 years, holds a BFA in classical guitar performance from Marshall University and an MM degree in classical guitar performance from Appalachian State University. A gifted composer and arranger, Hoover's original works have been performed around the Eastern U.S. by a variety of soloists and ensembles, and he has recorded and released four CDs of his own music as well. He is also well versed in contemporary styles of music, excelling at the electric guitar and ukulele.

“Guitar 2” is for students who have completed the “Beginning Guitar” class and are wanting to build upon the skills they have attained or for those guitarists who have a little experience already, but wish to expand their knowledge even further. Topics include rounding out the 15 basic chords, note reading on strings five and six, eighth notes and eighth-note strumming, and more of the fundamentals of technique.

The class (#71470) meets from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, Nov. 6-Feb. 5, in room 220 of the Continuing Education & Industrial Center on the Asheboro Campus. The cost is $150. The textbook, "Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1, 2nd edition," is required.
