Guitar Lessons for Beginners
Guitar 101 is a perfect entry-point for students who are learning guitar for the very first time. In weekly beginner classes, students learn how to handle their guitar, play basic chords, and start performing songs.
In the first class, beginner students learn basics like how to hold, tune, and strum their instrument. We show how fretwork can manipulate the guitar’s tone and sounds, as well as how to play basic chords. Meanwhile, advanced students work on techniques like barre chords and inversions.
As lessons progress, students start to practice sections of popular songs with easy hooks for beginners. After this, we encourage students to start making their own music. We teach students how to build songs around simple I-IV-V and 12-bar blues forms, including melodies and harmonies.
By the end of Guitar 101, students have a strong foundation as guitar players. Not only will students be able to play some of their favorite songs, they’ll also be able to craft their own music!
