ABOUT THE COURSE:
In this training the founder of the online Gentle Guitar school for kids, and author of the method, shows you how to teach standard notation to young kids on the guitar. Many guitar teachers struggle to teach music notes to kids. Many teachers question whether teaching standard notation to young kids even works! This course will prove that not only does it work, but that kids actually LOVE to learn to play notes on the guitar. It’s much easier for a 5-year old to learn notes than to start out by strumming chords. Even simple chords can overwhelm a young child. Many teachers struggle to teach this young age-group. But with this method you’ll find the secret to teaching guitar and music theory to very young kids, and you’ll instantly improve your student retention!
You will follow 10 lesson plans, and each lesson plan will be thoroughly explained. You’ll see student examples and will learn about child psychology and what to do, and what not to do. You do not need to know how to read music in order to follow this method. The instructor will step you through it step by step. So if you’ve always wanted to teach guitar to kids, this is a super easy and fun method! Your young students, and their parents, will love the lesson plans!
