Class Experience

As a beginner, you will learn how to play chords and strum.
🎸 I will give you a slideshow with our lessons and video tutorials. 
🎸 You should practice 15-30 minutes per day 3-4 times a week to see improvement. Students who do not practice in between sessions will find the sessions confusing and overwhelming. 
🎸 You will need a guitar.
🎸 You will need a guitar tuning app (I use Guitar Tuna which requires parental consent) or an electronic guitar tuner.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Guitar Tuna app:
In addition to the Outschool classroom, you will need a way to tune the guitar. You may choose to purchase an electronic tuner or utilize a tuning app for iPhone or Android. I personally use the Guitar Tuna app. You'll need to give your child parental consent to use this app or you may choose to tune the guitar for your child using the app yourselves. 

All YouTube videos that go with slideshows will be linked into the Outschool classroom so that learners are not directed to the YouTube site.
