Teach Guitar!? Why Me?!

ACC, Level 2, 213B
In-Person Only

Non-guitarist music educators are often asked to take on guitar classes and multi-level guitar programs as guitar is often combined with other disciplines. This, combined with the lack of pre-service pedagogical training in guitar at the undergraduate level, leaves a tremendous gap in curricular knowledge about current classroom guitar methods. Teaching Guitar Workshop (TGW) will provide an overview of well-known methods, including sequencing/pacing, ways to supplement instruction books, and classroom implementation strategies. This session will make teaching guitar your favorite class! Guitars provided by Taylor Guitars and Yamaha Corporation of America.
