Course 101 -
This program offers brand new guitar players the opportunity to learn guitar by attending interactive online classes using the Zoom app.
The 101 level course is ideal for raw beginners with no experience on the guitar. An accelerated (102) and also slightly more advanced course (103) are also available. This subscription gives you access to all three courses.
The introductory course begins with a focus on guitar fundamentals such as picking and fingering the strings. We then introduce some basic scales and playing of simple melodies. And finally we learn how to play a number of chords and learn to stum along with familiar songs in the keys of C, D, and G.
