This week in guitar class we will be focusing on:
1. Note Reading: We will learn the note names on the two highest strings, B, C, D, E, F, and G
2. We will continue to practice the chords D Major, G Major, and A7. We will also practice transitioning from E Major to A minor and C Major.
3. We will add a new chord C Major to our Chord Bank. By Friday, we will be able to play songs that have D, G, A7, E, Em, C, and Am and A Major
We have learned the following songs: Amazing Grace, Michael Row Your Boat Ashore, and Hey Jude.
New songs for this week include: Viva la Vida, All of Me and Let It Be by the Beatles
PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT: Thursday, September 10th
G, C, D7 G Four strums on each chord.
A performance assessment is a playing test, where the students perform one at a time for me. They are judged by how easily they change from one chord to the next, or how steady their beats are in the melody. They need to practice during class to get better, or at home, if they have their own guitar.
