Weekly lessons are 30 minutes long and students are encouraged to choose their own songs. All students are scheduled to perform at monthly open mic nights which will be held on the last Monday of every month unless it falls on a holiday. Location TBA each month. Students can choose their own time slot. The open mic counts as your lesson for that week, so you will have 3 private lessons and a performance every month ( unless there are 5 weeks that month - and that would add an extra private lesson). Students are encouraged to learn from watching and supporting their peers and develop a love of sharing their talents with others.
What you will need:
A smile =)
Books I have recommended and / or printed out songs
3-ring binder with plastic sheets
Parents of young students should always be present for the child’s lesson ages 5-10 years old. Parents learn with their child to help ensure productive and correct practicing habits at home.
Getting a Guitar
"Choosing a beginner guitar can be tricky, since the chances are you don't know a whole lot about guitars to begin with. Once that choice has been made, you're going to need to decide on a budget for your purchase. Avoid buying an ultra-cheap instrument - it will not only make learning guitar more difficult, but will have little re-sale value." about.com
If you are signing up a child for Guitar lessons, consider buying a classical guitar with nylon strings and a smaller body 1/2 or 3/4 size. The nylon strings will be easier to play because it won't be as hard on your fingers. I began playing guitar at age 8 on a tiny nylon guitar and then when I got older and my fingers developed callouses, I purchased a steel string guitar. I currently play a Taylor 712ce and a Taylor GS Mini. Taylor Guitars make incredible instruments and they baby Taylors that is great for traveling or for kids. ~ Susie
