Welcome to Beginning Guitar. My name is Frank Browne, and I’m looking forward to a fun session working with you all on playing the guitar and making music! Here are a few things to keep in mind during the semester.

 

Required materials to bring to class:

  • Guitar (preferably acoustic, but you if you don’t have that, you can try an electric with a small amp)

  • Ernie Ball Phase 1 Guitar Method/Beginner

 (available at most music stores in Santa Clarita, or Amazon)

  • Guitar picks (medium thickness)

  • Pencil

  • Folder to store hand-outs from class

  • Music stand (folding wire stands available at most music stores)

 

Recommended materials to bring to class:

  • Guitar tuner (available at most music stores)

 

Guitar Practice – Like most things in life, the more work you put into your guitar playing, the more enjoyment you’ll receive from it. It’s very important to review & practice what we learn in class during the week. A good starting point for practice is 20 minutes per day, 4 days a week.

 

Goals – Over the trimester, we’ll be learning how to read music, strum chords, and play various songs. We’ll have a class performance at the Huck end of the year exhibition in May

 

Once again, I’m looking forward to a fun semester with great music. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all. My email is frankbr@ca.rr.com
