Guitar for the Music Educator: Level 2
Guitar solo coming up? Guitarists not sure how to handle that chord symbol? Problems with funk and rock strumming problems? This course will help you help them! Learn to play through these issues yourself so you can help your guitar players reach their potential and contribute to the ensemble. Students will record and submit videos of themselves performing various exercises and songs, designed to unlock the common problems facing jazz and pep band guitarists.
*Students enrolled in the MMEd degree program at VanderCook may register for this course at the 500-level through the student portal. Please contact Dean Sinclair at [email protected] if academic advising is needed.
