Thursday, February 16, 2023
Instructor: Mark Wellman
The goal for the 10-week course is to begin learning to read and write music and tablature for guitar. To learn basic chord shapes, strumming patterns and how chords are created from scales including chord inversions. Chord melody will be introduced, and some pentatonic patterns will also be taught for beginning improvisation. No book is required, you will need in addition to the guitar, a small foldable music stand, both music and tablature paper, a spiral notebook for notes and a desire to learn. Beginner is a beginner 1 and 2 class where more advanced students will be taught at their level. The instructor will differentiate for each student. A missed class can be made up.
