What kind of guitar techniques will my child be learning?
The private lessons are tailored to the student’s ability. Our goal is to quickly help each student feel a sense of growth and accomplishment and create a positive experience for the beginning music student. We encourage exploration and invite them to get to know the sound and the feel of the guitar. There is a shallow learning curve in the beginning and the teaching approach can vary from student to student. We use simple music drills and song structures to cultivate and introduce guitar techniques that are technically accessible and easy to understand.
The order of techniques generally follows.
Rhythm study and counting. Playing with the metronome.
Single note basslines or rhythm patterns/ Melodies
Simple Chord and strumming Patterns
More sophisticated Chords and strumming patterns and songs.
Scale patterns/ playing transcribe solos and etudes
Introduction to improvisation
