To support the lessons we will make use of cd’s, visual aids (dvd, websites and YouTube), apps and computer programmes such as Guitar Pro, Power Tab, Transcribe, Cubase and Logic. This will help you to practise at home.
During the lesson close attention will be paid to a relaxed posture, tone production, musical phrasing and expression.
Learn about structure, notation and the use of chords/harmonies. Learn how to choose the right harmony to a melody.
