GUITAR LESSONS FOR AGES 8+

Absolute Beginner Guitar Program

The Absolute Beginner Guitar Program (Stage 1 and 2) is based on Sanel's Authentic Guitar Method. The Authentic Guitar Method is a method that leads the guitar student from knowing absolutely nothing about guitar to gaining the knowledge and technique to read music and interpret music compositions (repertoire).

 

Absolute Beginner Stage 1 

In Stage 1, the focus is on developing a strong core foundation with the right hand connection, reading rhythm and musical notation.

You will learn:

  • How to tune and all the necessary knowledge of guitar anatomy

  • How to hold the guitar properly with an aid of a guitar support

  • How to relate the musical staff to the open strings on the guitar

  • How to correctly connect with the right hand to the strings

  • How to write musical notation

  • How to read rhythmic notation

  • How to read musical notation

  • How to read preliminary dynamics and explore them with the right hand

  • To explore the guitar timbre (sound colour) with the right hand

  • How to play along with backing tracks

  • An introduction on how to isolate a problem spot and practice properly

Absolute Beginner Stage 2

In Stage 2, the focus is on developing a strong core foundation with the left hand connection, rhythm, musical notation and dynamics

 

You will learn:

  • How to correctly establish the left hand position

  • To explore the Vth (5th) fret position on the fretboard

  • How to correctly connect and press (fret) on the string with the left hand

  • How to relate each note on the fret board to the music staff notes

  • How to read more dynamic markings and how to use them in your own compositions

  • How to start phrasing a melody

  • How to play along to a backing track and start making your own backing tracks for practice

  • How to read and write more complex music compositions (melodies)

  • To explore the Ist (1st) and open positions on the fretboard

  • To explore how to practice with presence

 

This will all be done with compositions already prepared. Also, the students will have the opportunity to compose their own melodies and exercises that they’re proud to share with their family and friends.

 

Students are encouraged to explore exams and performance opportunities after their absolute beginner core foundations are done.

Beyond Absolute Beginner

Additionally, Sanel also teaches up to Grade 6 RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music) and up to Advanced Theory. For more information about these extra programs and how they can meet your specific needs please contact Sanel here.

THE AUTHENTIC APPROACH

What Are Authentic Guitar Lessons?

Authentic guitar lessons are guitar lessons focused on developing correct guitar foundation for beginner kids and adults. 

Students are able to incorporate this foundation into whichever style they choose to pursue later on (blues, jazz, country, etc.).

There is NO chords and there is no strumming.

And there is no playing with a pick. 

Connection to the guitar is very tactile with both left and right hands, and fingertips. 

 

The guitar becomes an extension of student's expression. They get to establish their own authentic connection to the guitar.

 

This creates an awesome way to learn and benefits the student by helping to build self-confidence and self-expression!
