Students will learn dynamically. Visuals on a whiteboard will be drawn, Notes or screen shots can be taken, the instructor will show what it looks like in close up on a guitar to do certain shapes, and the students will have time in break out rooms to practice what they’re learning, and work 1 on 1 with the teacher to improve their learning quality. Over the next 4 weeks, lessons will be structured as follows Lesson 1: Naming the parts of the guitar String names and tuning the...
After the completion of this course, a student will have the necessary tools to begin playing full songs for fingerstyle guitar, or studying for the first grade of their local royal conservatory of music. (Exams through the royal conservatory are optional, but can eventually be used toward high school credit) Most importantly, students will learn whether or not they enjoy the classical style of playing guitar, and whether or not they wish to continue with it in future lessons.
I want parents to feel comfortable taking the next step to get their learner started on the first step of their guitar journey. That’s what this class is all about. I’m here to create a relationship between the learner and the guitar that makes them excited about what they could learn next. I’ve been teaching beginner guitar classes for over 9 years, and have structured this class based on what I’ve found has worked with thousands of students over the years to get them excited about playing guitar. Additionally, I have formal training in Classical Guitar from Victoria’s Conservatory of Music, and the Royal Conservatory of Canada. Under my guidance, I’ve watched dozens of kids ascend through the grades in classical guitar onto success later in life.
It’s recommended students focus less on the amount of minutes/hours spent practicing, and focus more on creating a daily habit of picking up the guitar, regardless of how long it is for, as that is the biggest indicator of long term success with the instrument.
Students will need to have access to a nylon stringed guitar (aka. classical guitar) for this class. At a music store, you should be able to get a student guitar for $100, or sometimes even less if you purchase one used. It’s important to buy the correct sized guitar based on your learner’s age. For example, most 8 year olds I’ve taught have used a ½ sized guitar Whereas, most 12 year olds I’ve taught have used a ¾ sized guitar Around 13-14, a full sized guitar starts to become the instrument size of choice
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Progress is measured by an ability to play the material from the previous week. If a week is missed, the student shouldn’t have an issue jumping back in for the following week’s material, but it will make things a little bit harder.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.

Before I started kindergarten, my mom looked at me teaching my younger brother everything that I could and thought "He's going to be a teacher some day..." Fast forward to now... I've been teaching music in my local community and online for 11...
