Arielle Young has had it with being one of the few female guitarists she knows, so she's decided to do something about it.

This summer, Young — who is the vice president of the local nonprofit music school, Dace's Rock 'n' More Music Academy — will be teaching a group guitar class specifically designed for girls ages 9-13 at the music school in Redmond.

"Somehow, guitar became a thing that guys do but girls don't so much, and I'm going to change that," Young said.

The group guitar classes will range in size from 3-5 girls and each weekly lesson will be 50 minutes long. Times and dates will be determined based on the needs of the students. The classes will begin just after the July 4 holiday and continue through the rest of the summer. Enrollment for the class began April 21 and will continue until all available times are sold out. Tuition is $60 per student per month and tuition assistance is available.
