Do you work in SoMa or the FiDi and need a break in your day? Come learn to play guitar with Blue Bear at WeWork:SoMa! We offer private guitar lessons from 9:30am-6:30pm every weeknight with evening classes coming soon; learn to play guitar on your lunch break!

Blue Bear provides all instruments for lessons; no need to bring your own! Because of our unusual location in a shared office space, we do all of our lessons on sound-reduced semi-hollow body electric guitars and chambered acoustic-electric guitars; these instruments can be heard very clearly within our room but are not audible outside of the lesson space. True acoustic guitars and amplified electric guitars are too loud for the floor during regular business hours so we ask that students leave those instruments at home.

Lessons are by appointment only, we do not allow “drop-in” lessons and ask that students arrive at WeWork at least 5 minutes before their scheduled lesson time. When students enter WeWork:SoMa on the ground floor, the first thing they will have to do is register with the front desk which will involve signing into WeWork’s system and having their picture taken. Once signed in, students will be let up to the 6th floor where our office is located. There is a small lobby on the 6th floor where students can wait for their teacher to retrieve them and begin their lesson.

We hope that you enjoy your lessons at Blue Bear FiDi and welcome you as part of the Blue Bear extended family!”
