Class Experience

US Grade 1 - 4
Beginner Level
♪ 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!

0→ 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:
