Lesson Book 1
G1016 / 8.95


Includes a pre-reading section that allows the student to play songs by reading fret numbers only. Natural notes in first position on strings one, two, and three are presented, along with basic rhythms. Dynamics are also introduced to develop musicianship at an early level. The book is equally adaptable to pick style or classical technique. Includes optional teacher duets with chord names. Rhythmic accuracy is stressed throughout the method.

Includes downloadable MP3 files. Every song title has three MP3 tracks: 1) the teacher duet on the left channel and the student solo on the right channel; 2) an orchestration at a performance tempo where the instrumentation and music style enhance the various moods of each individual piece; 3) the same orchestration at a slower (practice) tempo.



Theory Activity Book 1

GuitarWorks, NoteWriter, Composer Corner, and Music Fun sections provide activities to reinforce concepts presented in the Lesson Book. A sound basis for rhythm is established by fun-filled counting and writing activities.
