Introduction to Guitar

I will be teaching beginning guitar in a classroom setting. This is an introductory class with focus on melody, chords, and learning notes on the guitar. The class will include singing and performing traditional melodies as well as popular songs. Students will learn to read music on guitar using tablature, standard music notation, and chord symbols. There will also be some rhythm training and ear training. My goal is that the students develop guitar skills while gaining a lasting appreciation for music and the guitar.
