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. 

I am an Outschool teacher and I have been teaching on outschool since May 2020. 
I have 20+ years experience, as a music teacher and performer. 
I have taught piano, electric keyboard, guitar, and general music classes, in both the classroom and private settings. 
I taught private piano and guitar lessons at a guitar shop, for 5 years, in addition to my own private students in my studio. 
I have a bachelor's degree in music education, from Towson University, plus graduate studies in music education. 

There will be specific things to practice each week. Students should also review things that were learned in previous weeks. 
I recommend that students practice  30 minutes or more, 3 -4 times per week,  in order to reinforce , review and practice what was taught in class, and to develop their skills. 
Acoustic or Electric Guitar Amplifier - if they have an electric guitar GuitarTuna app on a separate device if possible. ( A separate device than the one they are logged into Zoom on for class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will communicate to the students, how they are doing, as we go along. Informal assessment. 
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
GuitarTuna app or online tuner
