1. A guitar with all 6 strings (acoustic or electric will do). 2. A guitar tuner (I recommend a Snark clip on tuner, available from $15 to $20 USD) or an app that will work as one (I recommend GuitarTuna - it's free) 3. A few guitar picks. 4. A way to view the music and materials I will send out before class. 5. A good seat without arm rests, ideally one in which the learner can sit upright with their feet touching the ground. Optional, but nice: 1. A good, sturdy music stand. One with a solid back is best. These often cost $25 USD or more. 2. Print-outs of the music and materials I will send, as well as a folder or binder to keep them in.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
