Guitar Friends Level 1 (Fall Semester Only) In this class, students learn how to strum chords, pick melodies and develop the motor skills necessary to produce a great sound on the guitar. Students learn introductory songs that lay the foundation for beginner guitar repertoire, developing music skills such as basic notation, rhythm and vocalization. Guitar Friends Level 2 (Spring Semester Only) Students who complete one semester of Guitar Friends Level 1 can continue to develop the basic music skills and techniques necessary for all styles of guitar playing in this class. In addition to strumming chords and picking melodies, students learn beginner guitar repertoire and begin to combine individual parts and perform ensemble pieces, original compositions and improvisations. Students are required to rent or purchase a guitar for this class.
Instrument Friends
In the Community Music School, we encourage our youngest learners to join these engaging group classes, where the low student-to-teacher ratio ensures that students get both individual attention and support from their peers. At this age, students are naturally curious about how instruments create melodies and rhythms. Instrument Friends classes capitalize on this interest to teach essential musical elements such as basic reading, notation and instrumental technique, which are stepping stones toward formal private lessons. At the end of each 15-week semester, students perform in a group recital, building confidence and performance skills that prepare them for private lessons.
