Description

Class Experience

Some skills students will be learning:
♪ How to hold a pick, correct hand position while playing and resting.
♪ How to hold, and strum a guitar.
♪ How to play simple chords and songs.
♪ How to play different rhythms on the guitar.
♪ Simple strumming and picking techniques.
♪ A variety of strumming patterns.
♪ How to sing on time while playing the guitar.
♪ Basic music theory.
♪ Basic Warm-up exercises.

You decide what you would like to learn, I will make the song accessible to you depending on your level of playing the guitar. I will help you set your goals and choose songs and I will help you achieve them.
🎼 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!

🎼 My classes are fun, interactive, small groups of children where each child finds their voice and shines bright!
If you would like to progress faster, then I encourage a minimum of 10 mins practise per day, outside the lessons with me.
➡️ For this class, students will need an acoustic or classical guitar, or an electric guitar plugged into an amp. Picks are optional, and I encourage young learners to use their fingers, not a pick. ➡️ Please make sure your guitar is tuned before class as we will not be discussing tuning in this class. Here is a video explaining how to tune your guitar using a guitar tuner app on your phone. A grown up can help you with this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfjWaIgRddI&list=PL-RYb_OMw7Gf5Y6HfdXrn5s4Y5oXb2zkr&index=4 ➡️ Please make sure you position the student, so I can see their BOTH hands when playing, ideally from the forehead to the waist, in a well-lit room. Ideally, the young learner (under 6 years old) can sit with their legs crossed on the floor, iPad/laptop on the floor at a slight angle pointing straight or downwards. Older children can sit on a chair, BOTH feet on the floor, not hanging. NO arm rests for the chair please, as it will limit the child's movement with their arms while strumming and holding the instrument. ➡️ Please feel free to send me a message if you have any other questions.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
