Acoustic Guitar

Foundation Level

Acoustic Guitar, performance lessons are conducted in an individual (one-to-one) / private lesson format. Studies at the foundation level cover, absolute novice to secure hobby level playing skills.

Efficient posture, fundamental finger/hand techniques, rhythm & tab reading, basic phrasing, tone, and a secure pulse across slow to moderate tempos are the targetted learning outcomes. The application of these skills is developed across a range of musical styles through carefully selected repertoire/songs, exercises, and practice regimens.

For those who possess some prior playing experience, your mentor will asses your strengths/weaknesses, fill any learning gaps if required, and guide you from there onwards.

Music Theory lessons (weekly) in a group and via live online instruction, in addition to the individual practical session are an essential part of the program. On-demand conversion of any practical On Campus session to a Live Online session is available as a standard.
