Don’t let that beautiful instrument sit there gathering dust, start playing!
Playing the guitar is a great way to relax and even better, easily transportable. This hands-on course is designed for guitar lovers of all ages including teachers who may like to incorporate music and singing into their lessons.
During the course you will learn:
- The different parts of the guitar
- Open strings
- Simple chord progressions
- Different strumming patterns
- Finger picking
- Reading notes and tablature
- The Blues
Each lesson begins with tuning (enabling the group to play together), revision of the previous lesson then discussion. There’s opportunity to talk about any questions or issues that may have arisen in the previous lesson. A number of new techniques are then introduced which are related to songs that become homework tasks to work on for the following lesson.
During class you’ll also be able to listen to recorded songs to hear how the guitar is used in various musical styles. While the class works as a group in a relaxed and friendly environment there is also time for some individual tuition.
Homework is set at the end of each lesson and regular practice at home is encouraged.
