Guitar Lesson Contest | June 2015

OK kids, here’s my guitar lesson contest for June 2015.  You can give me your answers in class or send them to me in an email marked “June 2015 Contest”. As always, the contest is open to all my Oakville, Burlington, and online students who are currently in lessons with me.  Feel free to ask for help if you need it. Winner will be picked on June 22nd, so they can get their prize before summer lessons start.  Good Luck!
