Now offering Beginning Guitar & Family Music!
(click the link above for full class description)
Enroll one student (parents are welcome to bring a guitar and join in on Tuesdays) and the whole family is encouraged to join in on Thursdays for group music and sing-along time.
The best way to promote guitar practice is through a bit of scheduled performance. On Tuesdays we’ll be studying guitar technique and practicing with songs. On Thursdays, right from the beginning, we want all available family members to come and participate in a musical experience for everyone that will include not only singing with guitar accompaniment, but also working with rhythm instruments, Boom Whackers (look them up on YouTube!) and some movement with music. In the fall we’ll start learning chords and accompaniment style guitar using the Wee Sing Bible Songs book, Mrs. Crocker’s extensive sing-along repertoire, and easy Christmas carols. We’ll transition to include strumming styles, finger picking, flat picking, and learning how to read and play notes on our guitar, with our voices, and with additional instruments. Family members who play other instruments are encouraged to bring them on Thursdays.
Students will supply an acoustic guitar in good, playable condition. Please contact Molly Crocker if you have questions.
