Class Experience

Students will learn the following guitar concepts:
-Basics of strumming chords/using a guitar pick
-Note reading on the first two strings
-Basic tablature reading
-Beginning finger style guitar

The goal of this class is for students to have a basic, but wide range, of knowledge of guitar that will be beneficial to them as they continue with the instrument. Additionally, students will gain confidence on the guitar through a performance opportunity.
Students are expected to practice approximately 30 minutes each day throughout the duration of the class in order to have the most enriching experience. The instructor will provide a guideline at the end of class on what to focus on for practice each week. 
Acoustic or electric guitar with 6 strings, tuned (note: tuning can sometimes be a longer process and we will not have enough time to tune all guitars during class. Please consider signing up for the one time class "Tuning 101" if you need help tuning!) Guitar pick Book: "Hal Leonard Guitar Method" Book 1 I will supply tablature/music for songs that are not in the Hal Leonard guitar method.
Students will perform a song of choice (chosen from course content) on the last day of class.  The instructor will provide positive feedback and constructive suggestions on what the student can work on. Feedback will be sent home for students and families to review.  
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be playing classic rock songs that would usually be considered appropriate to the age group, however, parents are encouraged to review the songs listed prior to the class.
