This 10-week guitar class will begin with fundamentals such as proper sitting position and technique in both hands. After fundamentals are established, students will learn open chords, barre chords and slash chords. In addition, music theory will be covered and applied through major and minor scales and eventually chord scales. Various rhythmic and strumming patterns will be explored. All techniques learned in this course will be applied to actual repertoire and performance in the class. Students will explore multiple types of guitar music notation throughout the course. All material will be presented in a very logical progression from the most basic to the more challenging. Repertoire chosen for this class comes from pop, rock, blues, reggae and R&B genres. No prior experience needed, but students must bring their own guitar. Ages 15 & up.
