Beginning Acoustic Guitar

Ever wanted to learn guitar or play in a band, but have little to no musical experience? Here’s your chance to bring out that inner rock star. In this course, students will concentrate on basic guitar performance techniques. They will learn varying guitar styles including Classical, Blues, and Rock. Students will learn how to read and write musical notation, chord symbols, and tablature as well. Upon completion of this class students will be able to perform three chord Blues and Rock progressions, simple melodies, finger picking techniques, and various chord progressions to popular songs. Students will be expected to participate on an “in-class” recital at the end of the semester. Guitars are provided ($5 string fee), or students can use their own (on approval), and electric guitars are welcome (without amplification). Students must own or purchase Essential Elements for Guitar Book 1.
