Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS: It is the responsibility of participants to ensure they have downloaded and checked they have access to the Microsoft Teams Application. No formal entry requirements, just enthusiasm and a keen interest in the subject. OVERVIEW / INTRODUCTION TO THE COURSE: This course is to teach a basic understanding of the guitar, and how to play melodies, chords and rhythms, then songs. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: Online group tuition via the Microsoft Teams application. Focus on individual’s progress throughout, offering advice and support. As students progress, will work towards an outcome/project to conclude course. Each week students will be given access to youtube videos which will expand on the ideas covered in the lesson. WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: By the end of the course, students will have the ability to: - play popular and recognisable tunes/melodies/songs; - read basic guitar tablature and chord diagrams; and - tune their own guitar. RESOURCES REQUIRED BY STUDENTS / ADDITIONAL COSTS: Students should provide their own acoustic guitar (nylon stringed or steel stringed) and plectrum/pick. Students will also need a guitar tuner, either in the form of an App (many are available) or an electronic tuner. We would suggest that unless students already have equipment/materials that they wait until the first session of the course before purchasing expensive materials/equipment/text books, etc).
