Make a 3 minute video of yourself playing your favorite Beatles song on guitar. Post it to YouTube and send us an email with the link to your video.  We’re looking for 20 to 25 students for each show (50 max total) who are Beginning, Intermediate or Advance.  Students accepted to the program will spend 4 to 6 months learning the material for the shows, leading up to the Arizona Tour. Classes will meet online once per week, exclusive PDFs of the songs will be made available to the students before the classes & each month there will be a Beatles Guitar Project Guitar Convention in the Arizona region.  Our Artistic Director will fly in at the end of each month to meet the Students of the Arizona Beatles Guitar Project, and will teach two class sessions in person. Students need to attend a majority of these in person Guitar Conventions to be on the show.
