Description

Class Experience

♪ Skills taught in this ongoing course:
- different rhythms;
- mixed/complex strumming techniques;
- different fingering for more complex chords;
- different time signatures;
- fingerstyle picking.
♪ My name is Bella and I have been a teacher for 20 years. I love teaching music, guitar and ukulele to young children because it gives them a way to FIND who they are, to EXPRESS their feelings, emotions and thoughts and to LET IT GO!

♪ I have found that young children love playing musical instruments, making up their own songs, creating rhythmic patterns and learning a new musical instrument through story-type lessons. I am building each new lesson on their interests and passion, aiming not only to teach them a skill, but to develop a life-long LOVE for music, to SING, CREATE and PLAY the songs from their hearts!
No homework is assigned. For fast progress, it is recommended to practise your guitar for 10 mins per day. 
Students can practise the songs learned during the lessons.
→ Learners can use a pick, but it is not compulsory; I actually recommend the use of fingers for strumming/picking. → Please make sure you position the learners, so I can see their BOTH hands when playing, head to the waist, in a well-lit room. The young learner can sit on the floor, with their legs crossed. If they are joining from an iPad/laptop, they can also be on the floor or a little stool, it can point straight or downwards. → Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns. ♪ The teacher will provide the songs and other files (strumming and chord sheets); ♪ Students can have a classical or an acoustic guitar as well as an electric guitar plugged into an amp and also a CAPO. ♪ Tuner App ♪ Please make sure you tune your guitar before class as we will not discuss tuning in this class. Please feel free to send me a message if you have any other questions.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
- Please make sure you tune your guitar before class as we will not discuss tuning in this class.
- After you enrol your learner, there is a link to a Youtube Video in the classroom welcoming message. It explains how to tune your guitar using a guitar tuner app on your phone.
