Class Experience

Students will learn how to play the notes on the first 3 strings of the guitar.  They will learn modified and/or full forms of the chords C, G, and D.  By the end of the course, students will have learned 3 songs, "Spanish Theme," "Ode to Joy," and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star."
I have over 14 years experience teaching piano and guitar lessons to students ages 5 to adult.  Additionally, I am certified in special education and have experience working with students with disabilities. 
In order to get the most enriching experience from the class, students will be expected to practice 15-20 minutes a day for the duration of the class.  Weekly assignments will be given, usually to practice the notes and chords for the song learned in class that day. 
Acoustic guitar (size appropriate for student) Guitar tuner or tuner app (it is much appreciated if students/parents tune the guitar before each class meeting. Please see one-time class "Tuning 101" and request a time if you need help with this!) Guitar pick(s) Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1 Optional: Guitar strap, extra strings
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
