Getting Started on Guitar - Introduction (One-Time Starter Class: Ages 10-13)

Mr Darby - guitar tutor, qualified UK teacher

In this starter lesson, students will find their way around the guitar, learn how to sit, hold and tune the guitar properly, and will play their first two chords to strum along to a song.

Class experience

Students will be familiar with the parts of a guitar and know how to sit correctly, hold the guitar properly and place fingers in the right place to form two chords. They will gain experience of strumming in time to a song.
It has been my privilege and joy to teach guitar for over 35 years and to teach and work with children and young people for a similar amount of time. I am a qualified UK Primary School Teacher but currently work as a church pastor. I have a BEd (Hons.) degree in Primary Later Years (Expressive Arts). I enjoy playing music in rock, pop, folk, blues, jazz and classical styles, and also play piano, drums and bass guitar. I like to help students build knowledge, skills and confidence step by step, and above all to enjoy learning.
Homework Offered
Following the lesson, students should practise each day for 10-15 minutes, changing between two chords and using the practice video to play along to a song.
