Barre chords. How to read music in tablature form and how to maintain your guitar. There will also be an introduction to classical guitar techniques
This course is designed for the complete beginner or for anyone who would benefit form one to one tuition to make good progress.
None, but you will need to have your own guitar and the time to practise.
You will have the basic skills needed for playing from any current song sheet or chord chart and be able to follow any basic teaching book, DVD or teaching website and will learn the following:
Week by week we will be adding new chords, scales and rhythm patterns to your repertoire and applying these techniques as we play along to various recordings.
At least half an hour regular practice per day between sessions is advisable
The practical nature of the course allows for continual assessment of each students' progress and for correction as necessary. Written progress will be recorded on your Individual Learning Plans and Learning Journals by learners and tutors.
Continue with lessons for as long as you wish or want to move on.
You will need to bring a guitar or the tutor will advise on the purchase of guitar if needed. There are no recommended books on this course but you are welcome to bring along any books you are currently studying from.
