Painswick Branch

Teen Area

An introductory adult course designed to teach guitar fundamentals in a social setting that will have you singing and strumming along to the oldies.

Local resident, volunteer and retired teacher, Don McNair invites you to explore the acoustic guitar in this 8-week program. Learn simple music theory and a variety of basic chords and strumming techniques. Enjoy singing along to your own accompaniment to numerous well loved songs. 

Registrants will require: 

  • Acoustic Guitar
  • Music Stand 
  • Binder & Pen for notes
  • Guitar Pick
  • Electronic Tuner (optional) 

Don't have a guitar? Why not borrow one from the library? We also have 'learn-to-play' books, DVDs and digital resources available to get you started. Library members may place a request to borrow a guitar and the borrowing period is 3 weeks. You may renew the guitar up to two times, if there is no hold on it. Do note that if an instrument is returned damaged, with accessories missing or not returned at all, a damage or replacement cost will be assessed. Thank you to Huronia Symphony Orchestra, who has kindly purchased the instruments and provides all regular maintenance.


If you have any questions, please call 705-728-1010 or email askus@barrielibrary.ca

The health and safety of our participants and staff is our top priority, please review our Stay Safe Guidelines.
