Guitar playing is a wonderful way to appreciate music, build confidence and self-esteem, alleviate stress, enrich your life musically, and help you to enjoy your time at Ballenas Secondary.
The Ballenas Guitar program is perfect for the student who wishes to study and enjoy music on an individual basis, rather than in a large musical ensemble. The student will need to supply their own good-quality guitar. If you are not able to get a guitar of your own, we have several acoustic guitars you may use. You may study the steel-string acoustic or nylon-string acoustic guitar. Some students have also chosen to study the ukulele as another option. Students may study any of these instruments at any level of experience, from beginner to advanced from grade 8-12! If you’ve not played before, come out and give it a try! You just might find you have musical aptitude you didn’t know you had!
Here are recordings of some of the songs we have worked on this year:
LET IT BE
AIN’T NO SUNSHINE
STUCK ON YOU
STUCK IN THE MIDDLE WITH YOU
GIMME ONE REASON
