Course details

Brief Description:

This is a new course that has come about due to many requests from learners that
have completed Guitar for Beginners 1, 2 and 3. The emphasis will be to hone in and
develop the many techniques and skills that were introduced in the first three courses.

More time will be allocated to individual pieces promoting an ensemble style with
separate contributions from the learners such as accompaniment, rhythm, melody and
improvised lead guitar.

The course will run for all three terms with new projects assigned at the start of
each term meaning that those that have just started the course will be able to participate
from the start.
