#creative In this 4 week course, students will learn about the guitar, and the basics to begin playing the guitar, with some fun songs and improvising.

Class experience

Students will be able to play some songs on one string, from guitar tablature. 

Students will be able to hold the guitar properly and use good left hand positioning. 

They will understand how to read basic guitar tablature, and learn the string names and numbers. 

Students will learn some basic chords and play some songs, as well as practicing some  improvising. 

They will be able to tune their own guitar, using GuitarTuna. Please have GuitarTuna as a free phone app or the free online version. I will post the link to the online version in the classroom. 

Students will practice keeping a steady beat, while strumming.

They will be able to switch between some basic chords, including beginner C major, beginner G major, E minor and D6.

Students will be able to play an E minor pentatonic scale and improvise a short guitar  solo. 

Students will be prepared to move on to Beginner Guitar Level 2.
