Students will continue building on concepts introduced in Beginner Guitar and will perform various musical articulations and understand basic music symbols and how to successfully interpret them when applying them to their weekly song assignments and as a group during class. Students will bring their own instrument, accessories and textbook with them to class every week and will have weekly playing quizzes from a specific song from their text that they must independently prepare through regular practice and perform in front of their peers each week. Students will also participate in a community service project where Christmas music will be prepared to perform for the residents of area rest homes during a field trip.
